Here we go again! When Bernie Sanders faced off against Hillary Clinton in the Miami Democratic debate on March 9, he wore a suit that appeared to change colors — and suddenly it became the next #TheDress! So what color is Bernie’s suit? VOTE in our poll right here!
Bernie Sanders, 74, may have had a debate with Hillary Clinton, 68, on March 9, but he sparked a whole different debate on Twitter over his suit! While #TheDress may be so 2015, we find ourselves with another clothing mystery in 2016 thanks to Bernie: #TheSuit! That’s right, yet another garment is playing tricks on our eyes. One second Bernie’s suit was black, and the next it was brown! HOW?!
As Bernie and Hillary went back and forth on important topics such as immigration and health care, Twitter users clearly thought that the color of Bernie’s suit was more important. After the first commercial break, it seemed as though Bernie had changed suits, as his jacket looked brown all of the sudden. Of course, after the frenzy that #TheDress caused a year ago, people weren’t going to stay quiet about the puzzling color!
Brown? Black? Blue? None of the above? Just like the “blue and black” or “white and gold” question in the original viral clothing conundrum, Bernie’s suit color was practically more puzzling than the debate itself!
Bernie Sanders’s suit looks brown to me. @AaronBlake says its blue. Who’s right?

Is Bernie Sanders wearing a dark brown suit, or is that my TV?

The Democratic candidate’s suit caught on so quickly, the hashtag #BerniesSuit became a thing. It even has it’s own Twitter page already:
RT for brown fav for blue

But don’t worry, everyone: Bernie’s rapid response director Mike Casca quickly put #TheSuit debate to rest. “the suit senator sanders is wearing tonight is blue.” Wait, he tweeted again…
the suit senator sanders is wearing tonight is black*
*corrects for wrong color.

Aww man, even the people that were actually with Bernie didn’t even know what color he was wearing! Why must clothing do this to our minds?!
