Named "Glamis," the coat was last sold by the Italian fashion house in 2013.

One of the Minority House Leader's signature outfits is being re-released, just in time for the 2020 election.

On Thursday, Italian fashion house Max Mara said it was reissuing U.S. House Representative (D-CA) Nancy Pelosi’s famous reddish-orange funnel coat due to its immense popularity.

The brand took to Instagram to announce the news, posting an image of the politician wearing the coat and sunglasses as she appears to be leaving the White House after her meeting with President Donald Trump on Tuesday.

"Max Mara is honored that U.S. House Representative @nancypelosi wore the #MaxMaraFireCoat to her recent historic meeting at the White House," the clothing brand wrote.

"A #MaxMara coat is a year on year companion, designed to last a lifetime," continued the Italian fashion house, adding how an article of clothing represents power. "This boule shaped, funnel collar coat represents lasting values and projects both personal strength and glamour. #MaxMaraWomen."

According to CNN, Max Mara last sold the coat — called "Glamis" — in 2013, and the brand will now reissue the coat in a variety of colors in 2019.

Reinstating a famous fashion piece is rare and only occurs once a piece of clothing has been dubbed iconic. The most current example would be Versace’s 2017 and 2018 collection of its famous 1990s prints and patterns, as well as J.Crew’s rollneck sweater, according to CNN.

The famous coat caused a stir on Twitter after Pelosi was seen wearing it, prompting its own Twitter account, Nancy Pelosi’s Red Coat, and multiple memes.

The New York Times' fashion critic, Vanessa Friedman, said of the garment, "The coat whispered 'burn' with a wink and a swish. It also helped transform her from a seemingly tired symbol of the establishment to one of well-dressed revolt."
