I spied this in Brooks the other day — you can see why it was hard to miss. The new patchwork cardigan — includes 20 different panels and 15 colors — is made of lambswool and priced at $498. According to Brooks’ website (which also notes the designer spent 30 hours on it), the sweater is all but destined to be a sellout. There’s certainly something about it that says “collector’s item.” So what do you think?
Is it a must-have?
Cheers to Brooks for keeping the preppy GTH spirit alive (or vivo, you might say)?
Good in concept but not execution?
Or is patchwork a vice among preppy’s many virtues?
Last year there was an epic patch-tartan cardigan by Polo that stirred my cravings, but it was something like $1,200, which makes this one look like an absolute bargain. — CC
