>> i'm outside the wardrobe room, which in my opinion is the most important room at the "today" show, making sure the buttons are sewn on properly, the outfits don't clash, and matt and al's suits look nice and pressed. we know the show starts at 7:00 am , but these guys are working hard. they get here at 4:30 every morning. there she is, she is working hard, that's donna richards out there.

>> that's pretty big if you're talking heads. hat sizes it converts to like a 7 3/8.
