Not as good as it was. Better than it will be.
A little close to Cosby territory, no?
Not to sound like a broken record about brands like this, especially around here where I'm surely preaching to the choir. Nonetheless, here I go: if A&F Then met A&F Now, A&F Then would kick A&F Now's ass. Soundly.
The sweater on the right is great. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
I like the one on the left - a lot. Very cool saddle shoulders on that one. I also really miss the block/patch shetland wool sweaters that were so common in the late 70s and early 80s. I know someone who was wearing one of those at church last night (it was Christmas Eve here). Merry Christmas!
The second incarnation of A&F, much more close to the original than the present version.
You've got a thang for those horizontal multistripe sweaters. I'm gonna see if the Flusser cashmere one is still available at Steinmart when I'm in SC tomorrow.
sunshine,aren't there micromanfacturers who could do this for you, what what?
TinTin, I hope Santa filled your embroidered silk stocking with only the finest 100% cotton Pima, heavy weight imported cashmere and the finest single barrel bourbon...oh, and couple of Cubans for being such a good boy in 2009. Cheers in 2010. ME
I think the sweater on the right is the famed "Otter sweater" from "Animal House."
Chens- Way off. You're thinking of the Coogi Sweater. http://www.shopcoogi.com/store/site/product.cfm?id=28B6044E-C521-4A0B-889C5F87F5E17465&ln=COOGI_MenA nasty bit of knit wear I never did like but very popular in Highland Park. I never understood why.
Ben- Say it all you want. Maybe the kids runnin that place will hear you.Brian- There called Poor Boy sweaters and originated, best I can tell, in London in the late 50's or early 60's. Happy belated Chrismas. Richard M- Lots of AF ads in M. Overall some nice stuff but no where near the integrity of the original. Sorta like Chris Craft which I'll post later this week.ADG- I just hope I don't look like Pugsley Addam's in 'em.Anon- Jay Kos does that. Have you checked out his price point?ME- All I wanted this Christmas was world peace but let me know if I should be looking for a package from you. Kent- Close but no cigar. Here's the Otter Sweater:http://thetrad.blogspot.com/2009/09/otters-sweater.htmlJay Kos did one and I snagged the second to the last. Or so he tells me.
