Hillary Clinton took a lot of flak on Monday after a report surfaced that the presidential candidate wore a Giorgio Armani jacket worth more than $12,000 during a speech in April about inequality.

Clinton, who was well-known for her vast pantsuit collection, has upgraded her wardrobe during her most recent bid for president to appear more relatable, according to the New York Post.

Social media users don't seem to be buying it, however.

"She's had to have spent in the six figures on this wardrobe overhaul," Patsy Cisneros, a Los Angeles-based political image consultant, told the Post.

Clinton is far from the first politician to spruce up her campaign wardrobe. Sarah Palin received $150,000 worth of clothing from the Republican National Committee during her vice presidential campaign run in 2008, according to the Post.

Similarly, Republican candidate Donald Trump has often been spotted in Brioni suits, which can cost a whopping $7,000 each.
