If you were watching the news on election night, you may have seen Steve Kornacki in front of an electoral map in his trusty khaki pants. GAP says khaki sales skyrocketed after the election.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Fashion has been totally thrown out of the window this year, right? For me, it's been mostly Chucks and old T-shirts. But at Gap, there is one item that is skyrocketing in sales - khaki pants. And they've got NBC's Steve Kornacki to thank for that. If your eyes were glued to the TV following the election, you may have seen him as he paced back-and-forth in his trusty khakis, explaining state and county election results. Khakis - just too formal for me these days.
