Minutes after soon-to-be-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi staked a fresh claim on her power during an Oval Office meeting, the California congresswoman staked a separate claim on power in the fashion world. The 68-year-old was the very definition of a social media influencer as she walked away from the tempestuous meeting with the flustered president. Her coat, a Max Mara design at least five years old, blew up on the Internet — because Pelosi looked oh-so chic and commanding in its sleek silhouette.

Pelosi’s coat is the GLAMIS by Max Mara, an Italian design firm that traffics in high-end fashion. Max Mara coats generally cost more than $1,000 — and some climb to 3x or 4x that. Pelosi may wear expensive coats, but the Democrat makes them last. She wore the same Max Mara to President Obama‘s second inauguration — and everybody can agree that the halfway mark in the Obama era seems ages and ages ago.
Unfortunately if you want your own Max Mara GLAMIS, you’ll have to wait till 2019 when Max Mara will reissue the design. Either that or start haunting high-end consignment shops and thrift shops. Many who can afford such coats don’t keep them longer than a season or two. Below are some other Max Mara fashions that exude power, for a little bit less money:
