'71' by Parrish of Park Ridge, Illinois, an official 'Sand Knit'
Not one wear another man's school colors, I immediately removed the 'N' from the cardigan, and found a pocket underneath.This thing weighs a ton. After it gets a fresh dry cleaning, I think I'll change the buttons for some brown leather ones, and use it like a sports jacket. '71' is too cool to mess with and will remain as is. In your face, Rugby Ralph Lauren! $150 my foot!
And what to wear to the spring semi-formal? We all know nothing impresses the young ladies quite like cotton madras:What's that? Spilled your drink? No need to worry, the Palm Beach 'Zephyr Weight' is machine washable:
All this, plus a sweater and a fleece blanket for the boy, a 1960's vintage glass and gilt serving dish for the wife, and an unworn Brooks Brothers U.S.A. made white oxford button down for just shy of 30 clams. Not a bad haul.
p.s. Who can even imagine a teenager dressed like this? How far we've fallen (world's smallest violin)
