There are so many cool sweatshirts out there right now

12

I know I just did a post on hoodies, but there are also a ton of cute non-hoodie sweatshirts out there that I feel deserve attention, so here we go: I love how simple and graphic this one from Kule is.

And the tiny stars here are pretty adorable.

A good tie dye specimen that reminds me of this pricier one from Nili Lotan.

I think a skull is pretty much a classic by now, and this one is so cool in the gold.

And here’s a nicely polished V-neck.

I think the diagonal stripes here are pretty nifty, and would look cool layered under a jacket.

Just a good, solid classic black sweatshirt.

And here’s a fun, new-wavey one in grey that will only get better with age.

I’m very tempted by this polo-style sweatshirt with bold, skinny pink stripes.

This tonal flocked leopard print is nicely subtle.

And so is this python print.

Blue-on-blue camo and a slightly cropped fit make this one standout.

The paint speckles here remind me of something I might have owned in the 80s, and I like the slightly flared sleeves.

Such a flattering and stylish pleated number.

This babydoll style is cute and easy, and also comes in extended sizes.

A Bowie-esque lightning bolt is never a bad idea.

 

And finally: the pleated sleeves on this tiger stripe sweatshirt dress it up a bit.

    I think skulls will start showing upon everything now. If you remember the 1980s, especially early 80s, things were a bit apocalyptic in fashion. Future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades — scratch that — I gotta wear an N95 and visor, sterile gloves…

    So … does anyone know how one might figure out where a man’s tie came from?

    Because not to sound all sophisticated or anything – since I’m not, much – but the tie worn on Fareed’s cnn show on Sunday morning by the ex-diplomat from Singapore looked rather interesting. His name is Kishore Mahbubani. And I am unable to find a picture of it anywhere. And I erased the tivo.

    It was a sort of grid-patterned floral/foliage type of pattern.

    What to do? I can try to figure out how to email the show later – they have one of those systems where you have to register, understandably – but I know if I were them and received such an email, it would be round-filed.

    What’s worse is … I don’t really *need* one, I just liked it.

      Come to think of it I think the telly said he is teaching in England now, so first thing will be to check the website of So & So later on.

        Thank you for this delightful wondering. I looked up Kishore Mahbubani and spotted his website. It’s mahbubani.net The website includes a contact page in which you can send a message. It also lists his email, address, and I think, his phone number. Please, go for it and ask him, and most importantly, then share what you learn with us!

          Wow, thanks!!! That is so kind, I didn’t even think of that – who better to ask??? I’m going to go do that right now. And I’m not even going to get very upset if *he* round-files it…

    I recently weeded out my sweatshirt drawer so I can upgrade where necessary. I decided that one of the things I like is a “floaty” or undone hem, so I ordered this basic navy one from Gap (is anyone else tempted to call it “The Gap,” like I think I always will be?): https://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=525993012&pcid=999&vid=1#pdp-page-content. I really think I need a special one, too, like the subtle leopard.

      So funny! I still call it “The Gap” too. I worked there in the grunge days, and was a bit too old to be working there. Alas, still in school and the mall had flexible hours. My boss HATED me b/c I was not an enthusiastic SA. BUT, I won SA of the month during December because I told a lady that sweatsuits were ideal gifts for any and all on her list. So she bought….20 of them!!! So, sweatshirts (and pants) rule, Kim knock yourself out and post them often. And take that old boss, right up “The Gap”!

      Impossible to say it without the “the”. They can never dial it back.

    Love the “Love,” but they’re down to sizes M&L. However, I can see by all you posted that I need to step up my sweatshirt game!
