This is kind of the reverse of what is expected. You should wear the shirt and put the sweater around your waist.... but no! Buck convention and put the pattern around your waist instead. It's interesting and tun but still pretty basic-- just the usual pieces in a different order.
Again, hooked on the textured/marled sweaters. This Banana Republic crew has wide ribbing right at the elbow which make my biceps look bigger than they actually are when pushed up. Hey, I'll take any help I can get in that area! Textured and waffle sweaters also give you a broader appearance because of the added dimension. If you have narrow shoulders like me, it will make them looks broader. If you have wide shoulders it will accentuate them. Something to keep in mind when stocking up this fall. Bulk up or slim down? That is the question.
