Senator-elect John Fetterman (D-PA), infamous for wearing baggy sweatshirts and loose-fitting gym shorts, has been ranked amongst the most stylish of 2022 by the New York Times.

The annual list is made up of 93 people from across the cultural and political world. The Times says that their choices are “without a doubt, correct.”

“High and low. Fun and serious. Curious and open-minded. Reveling in characters. Appreciating the material world. Inviting everyone to the party,” the Times began their list. “All of these are ways that The Times’s Styles desk defines its approach to whom and what it covers.”

“Equal parts stylish and Styles-ish, the “people” on this list — who are presented in no particular order — include politicians and celebrities and athletes and influencers and fictional characters from TV and film,” the Times’s Styles desk continued. “Some of them appeared in the Styles section this year. Others simply captured our attention.”

“Love them or hate them, all have at least one thing in common,” the newspaper explained. “At some point over the past 12 months, they made us talk: about how we dress, how we live, and how we choose to express ourselves. We welcome dissent. But we are, without a doubt, correct.”

Fetterman, who beat his opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz by nearly five percent in the midterm election, was featured in the list with a single line of explanation: “The senator-elect from Pennsylvania is going to bring Carhartt to the Capitol.”

While the former mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania made a name for himself by wearing ultra-casual clothing to his few and far-between campaign stops prior to the midterm election, he has been seen in Congress wearing the occasional suit, as reported in Newsmax.

An image shared by the Pennsylvanian’s wife, Gisele Barreto Fetterman, showed the senator’s new office with him wearing a suit with a blue tie on his first day in the Capitol.

The only other politician included on the list was Rep. Ayanna Presley (D-MA) to which the Times said that she “has alopecia and has worn her bare scalp with aplomb, this year co-sponsored the CROWN Act (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair), legislation that seeks to reframe the politics around everyone’s ‘crowning glory.'”

While the Times included two Democrat politicians, they also listed a host of celebrities including Anne Hathaway, Bad Bunny, Ben Affleck, Martha Stewart, Serena Williams, and many more.

While it is highly debatable whether or not the Times is “without a doubt, correct,” Pennsylvanians can only hope that their senator doesn’t show up in Carhartt when he takes the oath of office on January 3rd.
