  • Well, of course

  • President Biden's inauguration was yesterday.

  • One thing people are still talking about

  • is how terrific everybody looked.

  • The fashion world is buzzing.

  • I mean, check this out.

  • Here's Vice President Harris

  • in a custom piece from Christopher John Rogers

  • and wow that is, that is stunning.

  • Yeah and apparently the designer used purple

  • to pay homage to the suffragette movement.

  • Yeah, no, just beautiful.

  • So much thought went into it.

  • Then the Vice President's stepdaughter

  • wore a crystal embellished Miu Miu coat

  • and check it out, those clean lines

  • paired with the crystal detailing

  • and it just evokes hope and progress.

  • It's perfect.

  • It's yeah.

  • Then of course, Bernie Sanders wore this.

  • Now it's a little bit of a different direction.

  • I'm not sure what he was trying to say with this look.

  • Andy, any ideas?

  • No, it's very enigmatic.

  • I know.

  • Well, anyway, I wanted to find out

  • how Bernie Sanders outfit came together.

  • So hear this,

  • we were actually able to contact the designer

  • who dress Bernie Sanders for the inauguration.

  • That's right.

  • She's a salesperson at the Burlington Coat Factory

  • in Essex, Vermont.

  • Please welcome Jen Finney.

  • Hey Jen.

  • Hi, Conan.

  • Jen it's an honor to have you here.

  • Tell us what was it like dressing Senator Sanders

  • for this historic inauguration?

  • Well, Bernie shuffled in the night before

  • and went straight to our beige section.

  • He told me he needed to coat,

  • because the last one he bought was in 1978 for $22.

  • Okay, so you knew this was going to be a challenge?

  • Yes and I love a challenge Conan.

  • So I asked him what are we going for here?

  • And he said something I can also wear to walk the dog.

  • Okay and what's the significance

  • of the color palette you chose?

  • Well, I suggested navy blue,

  • but he wanted something

  • that would go well with spilled coffee.

  • He said, imagine if oatmeal became a coat.

  • Okay, so he had input.

  • Yeah, did you discuss what fabric what type of cut?

  • Well, Bernie wanted something with pockets,

  • because he needed somewhere to put cough drops

  • and loose tissues.

  • Oh, this is fascinating.

  • Then I said, Bernie, do you want a matching scarf?

  • And he said, who am I JP Morgan.

  • Okay, Yeah.

  • He's got a sense of humor.

  • What designer did you end up choosing?

  • The coat is from Dockers and the mittens are Gucci.

  • I'm sorry, his mittens are Gucci.

  • Donna Gucci.

  • She teaches at the middle school.

  • Recently had a messy divorce, her fault.

  • Oh, okay, that's too bad.

  • So describe the first time

  • you saw the whole ensemble together.

  • It was magic.

  • When Bernie came out of the dressing room

  • we all started crying.

  • We knew that was the coat.

  • Then he said, I also need socks

  • and I said two isles over, next to the gel candles.

  • And was Bernie excited?

  • He said nothing and scowled

  • which from him I'm told is a rave review,

  • but then I mentioned that this particular coat

  • also doubles as a dog bed and his face lit up.

  • Wow, wow, what a historic moment for fashion.

  • Hey Conan, my breaks over and I really need to go.

  • Okay, bill, yes, right away.

  • My manager Bill is such an asshole.

  • I hate it here.

  • Bye Conan.

  • All right, well from the Burlington Coat Factory

  • Bernie Sanders designer, Jen Finney.

  • We got a great show tonight.

  • Rachel Brosnahan joining us.

  • We're gonna have a great.

  • No, talking to Conan O'Reilly.

  • It's O'Brien, Conan O'Brien.

  • No, yeah, he's still on the air.

  • Yes, I'm very much on the air.

  • I don't know.

  • I guess it's a show.

  • It's been a show for a long, no, it's definitely a show.

  • It's been a show.

  • Is this a web series?

  • No, this is a show that, you know what I mean

  • Rachel Brosnahan when we come back.

  • Don't you have a coat to sell or something?

  • They pretty much sell themselves.

Well, of course
