The sweater might be my favorite article of clothing*. Perhaps that seems like quite an arbitrary statement like “music is awesome” or “food is delicious” but it’s true. There’s just something about sweaters that I love and I am always on the look out for perfect looking sweaters and unique designs. Meet Fall 2012’s current front runner, a flawless striped number from #menswear! darling Michael Bastian. Nobody does modern preppy Americana quite like Basty, and here is yet another reason why he crushes it like few others. Perfect fall colors, the right amount of stripe, ungodly luxurious cashmere, and a nice little detail of shoulder placed buttons for a modern edge. Want. Too bad the price tag is a preposterous $1025. Luckily I’ve got a well planned bank robbery coming up next week so this beauty shall be mine post heist.
Big ups Basty, the fall sweater gauntlet has been laid. What you got menswear?
*the irony that my favorite article of clothing is the sweater and that my nickname for completely unrelated reasons is sweater is not lost on me. Maybe that isn’t irony?
