Mr. Rogers and his Lovely Cardigans





Mr. Rogers was a great show. I, being the queen I am, loved it when we ‘helped’ him pick out his daily sweater. Would it be patterned? Would it have a zipper? Today’s choices leave poor Mr. Rogers’ in the dust. The cardigan is a classic and basic in a man’s wardrobe, but the opportunities to twist this classic makes it so moldable, that everyone really should have two or three or 300–for all their moods, whims , and fancies. Here are some different takes on the cardie trend.
