Sen. Fetterman (D-PA) has chosen to dress in a manner befitting his previous role rather than his current position of higher authority. Instead of dressing for the job he aspires to or even for the job he currently holds, Fetterman has opted for more casual and less formal attire.

While male senators are typically expected to wear a jacket and tie on the Senate floor, Fetterman has found a way to work around this expectation.

He strategically casts his votes from the doorway of the Democratic cloakroom or the side entrance, ensuring that his voice is recorded before promptly leaving the floor. This approach allows him to maintain his preferred casual attire, which he famously dislikes wearing suits.
