Michael Bastian Knows Sweaters

Today I chanced upon The Cosby Sweater Project — wherein an unnamed artist revisits the best sweaters worn on The Cosby Show — and I decided to look at some of my favorite sweaters from Michael Bastian. Here below, an assemblage of Bastian’s classics.

Also, I wanted to share that my mother was at a wedding recently and met someone who introduced herself as a 30-year veteran of Polo Ralph Lauren. My mother asked if she’d heard of Michael Bastian and was appalled to find that the woman had not. I am similarly shocked.
