Then, a few days ago, armed with birthday money from my parents (yes, they still give me money in a card), I happened across this number:Knitted of wool as-thick-as-your-thumb, a real bullet proof piece. $6.99
No, it ain't L.L. Bean, it's Boston Traders. No, it ain't made in Norway, it's made in India. Possibly early 90s vintage. I remember once I had a pair of white cotton flannel pants with deep inverted pleats from Boston Traders. Those were pretty cool too.
Unlike the Bean sweater, this one has a nice little detail knit at the cuffs and waist, as well as an extra white stripe at the neck. Jaunty.
