Just when you thought Barack Obama couldn't get any cooler...

The always dapper President made an incredibly charming appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night. They broadcast the show from the University of North Carolina campus, as Obama was mainly there to talk about his push to preserve current student loan rates (yes, please). Or was that issue just a pretense for what he really wanted to talk about: the awesome fur-collared jacket he wore in college and bought from a thrift store?

While Obama reminisced about his own time as a college student, Fallon pulled out an amazing photograph of a college-aged Obama, which the two began to dissect like an episode of Fashion Police. Obama began, "I want you to notice the Afro and there's I guess fur on the jacket on the collar, I think this was a Goodwill purchase." Hot. (PETA, you can just forget about it because it was a Goodwill purchase!)

We (along most of the fashion industry) definitely approve of the purchase and Obama's hipster-y shopping tendencies. Watch below.
