This has led the United States Senate to end its professional dress code that requires a suit for men and a dress or suit for women. Now members can wear any attire of their choice.
Opinions among Americans are divided regarding the Senate’s recent decision to permit casual wear by senators. Fox News interviewed individuals in northern Virginia about the Senate’s departure from its long-established practice of requiring suits, ties, or formal attire.

This change was initiated when Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York discontinued the dress code. The alteration in the dress code was unexpected and has been informally referred to as the “Fetterman rule.” Democrat Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman is known for his casual clothing while in the Capitol. Fetterman usually chooses to wear a hoodie and shorts.
Mocking the new dress code, social media users created an artificially generated image of Senator Rand Paul showing up to work barefoot in a bathrobe:
This A.I. image of Rand Paul showing up to work in a robe following the Senate dropping its dress code for slob John Fetterman had a lot of people fooled. How long before the crooks in government start using Deep Fakes to frame and persecute people for a political end? pic.twitter.com/YyrrKA9aAl

Americans were divided on the casual wear saying, “Not only more friendly to people, but also to the environment.” (Trending: Thanks to Biden, America Is Speeding Toward Great Depression)
“I prefer traditional wear,” one said. “I think that should be a standard.”
“Maybe a Friday you can take a bit of a lax stance, maybe a hot summer, but I would not sway from tradition,” she said. “And I think it conveys a sense of confidence, and that is something that is not to be taken for granted.”
Another said it’s “cool.”
“But in terms of actual Senate decorum and actually the work there, I think it’d be better if they wore a full suit or a full dress,” said another. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Vetoes Bill For U.S. Military)
One person commented, “It’s a lot more comfortable for the senators to not have to wake up in the morning and think about what tie to put on or what suit to wear. It saves them time so they can help the community more and serve us.”
“Next week, Senator Manchin intends to file a bipartisan resolution to ensure the Senate dress code remains consistent with previous expectations,” a spokesperson for Manchin’s office said.
