The lining of the coat carries a message reflecting the Biden generation’s career as a teacher, borrowed from a saying by Benjamin Franklin: “Tell me and I’ll forget. Teach me and I’ll remember. Join me and I’ll learn.”
The designer pointed out that Biden’s clothes were made from locally available fabrics, which were collected with the environment in mind.
