The story

  • Not so long ago, my friend Kevin cleaned out his wardrobe, which, due to his pack rat nature, was crammed with clothes he hadn't worn in more than a decade. Among the discarded were 25 sweaters that can generously be described as "hideous." Or, as one critic put it, "Bill Cosby would not wear this." Kevin's defense? "I worked at Marshalls in North Olmsted, Ohio, during high school and got a 15 percent discount. It was cold. It was the late '80s." The horror, the horror. Click here to see them, but be warned. Your eyes. The burning.

I can't agree with you on this one at all. This sweater has very desirable elements for anyone who wants to dress neatly without looking stodgy; The freeness to the pattern is a welcome breath of fresh air from the boring assortment of standard geometric patterns. Plus, the soft brown and gray colors look great on any brunette male with a few gray hairs. This sweater fills a credible niche for any dignified man who might get called into the office unexpectedly on the weekend.


plus it looks to be a genuine Coogi brand mercenized cotton sweater: ranges from $200-$600 retail and is a respectable urban fashion staple.

The paint chip far outshines it in aesthetic worth.


I'm guessing he's a deerhunter.
