An ITK spy eyed Sanders leaving the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Wednesday night sporting his Smithsonian-worthy gear.

An image of Sanders at President Biden's inauguration last week — showing the 79-year-old lawmaker sitting in a foldout chair at the formal ceremony while dressed in a parka and pair of oversized mittens — instantly went viral.

Sanders announced Tuesday that he had raised $1.8 million for Vermont-based charitable organizations by selling sweatshirts on his website featuring the image of him in his cold-weather look.

The senator defended his bundled up style as the image first started to take off, telling CBS News's Gayle King in an interview immediately after the inauguration, "In Vermont, we know something about the cold and we're not so concerned about good fashion."
