CNBC reported that Clinton wore a Giorgio Armani jacket worth over $12,000 back in April during her New York primary victory speech, in which she mentioned inequality.

The New York Post says that the $12,495 jacket was part of an image upgrade for Clinton.

Whether or not that's true, it's possible Clinton didn't pay the full price for the jacket.

On the Armani website, the listing for the coat, made of "multi-colored napa lambskin and woven with silk thread," is slashed to $ 7,497.

Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is no stranger to pricey clothes either.

BuzzFeed News reported in March that Trump's favorite suits and shirts come from Brioni. Suits from the Italian designer cost between $6,525 and $7,875 and shirts cost between $695 and $1,325.
