The de facto winner of the second presidential debate was Kenneth Bone, the friendly-looking man in the cozy-looking red sweater who captured the hearts and minds of Twitter on Sunday night after he asked the second-to-last question in the town hall-style session.

And as Bone became an instant star, so did his red sweater: a cable-knit pullover with a ¼ zipper from Izod that retails for a cool $49. It quickly sold out on both Amazon and Izod’s website, and Izod has capitalized on the buzz with some savvy tweets about the “town hall” look and quick-thinking in-store merchandising.

Even though Bone admitted to the radio show 590 The Fan on Monday morning that the sweater was not his first choice in debate attire — the olive suit he was planning on wearing ripped when he got in the car, so he tossed on the sweater instead — his crimson Izod number has become the hottest ticket in town for the politically minded. Or, Halloween’s most coveted costume, at least.

But to anyone lamenting that there will be no Ken Bone sweater in their future…

We have some stellar news: The red Izod sweater is still available at both Kohl’s and JCPenney as of Tuesday evening.

You’re welcome.
