Making a Comeback?

Did anyone else see the New York Magazine article on Fisherman Sweaters? They are apparently making a comeback. My first thought when I read this was, “They went away?”

My Aunt Carolyn made one for me when I was in college that I adore and still wear regularly. I’ve never knit one myself, but it’s on the list. When I do get around to making it, I’ll probably price it about like this one by The Row.

You can find it at Saks Fifth Avenue for $4,490.

My favorite is this one by Michael Bastian. It’s a steal at $1,250.

That hood alone is worth at least $1,000. Seriously.
