I had that first sweater in a hairy, itchy, multicolor knit with MUCH bigger sleeves in 1983. Seriously.

This is amazing! I can't believe that sweater is from 1895 - and the RL ripped it off and it looks totally modern today?!

Ralph Lauren is the ultimate borrower of other designs. Has he created an original design ever?
