While everyone else was (understandably) atwitter about Kamala Harris’s purple Christopher John Rogers dress-and-jacket duo and Michelle Obama’s Sergio Hudson belted jumpsuit, we — in true Strategist fashion — found ourselves obsessing over some of the lesser-discussed Inauguration Day accessories. How fast could we find baby Beau Biden’s itty-bitty plaid blazer, we wondered? Who was behind Cory Booker and Rosario Dawson’s indigo-dyed couple’s masks?

As our friends at the Cut observed, Senator Bernie Sanders showed up “looking like a man who was preparing to shovel the driveway, a man who was standing in line at the post office, a man who was about to get into his Subaru Forester and head to the grocery store.” According to BuzzFeed News political reporter Ruby Cramer, the handmade mittens were gifted to Bernie by Vermont schoolteacher Jen Ellis, who uses repurposed wool sweaters and fleece made from recycled water bottles.
