Bernie Sanders took on Hilary Clinton on a number of issues at a Democratic debate last night but the only issue audiences at home wanted answered was in relation to the colour of Sanders' suit.
People were quick to compliment Sanders on the choice of his brown suit for the debate.
Bernie, I like the brown suit. Nice change from the uniforms candidates like to wear.#DEMDEBATE

I'm just going to take a stand here, an hour in, and say I dig the Sanders brown suit. It works.

However it soon emerged that the suit was not brown in everyone's eyes.

It got to the point where a spokesperson for Sanders had to settle the debate.
the suit senator sanders is wearing tonight is blue.

Others compared the situation to another International incident from two years ago.
