Livin’ Better Now, Coogi Sweater Now

I never thought this would happen. But the Coogi sweater is back. The movement so far is small, infinitesimal even. But a few hipsters I’ve seen in Echo Park and Brooklyn have led me to believe the wave is starting and won’t end. I’m not sure if its been the slow brainwashing of an entire generation of kids that were raised on Nick at Nite reruns of The Cosby Show.

And all I know is, I kinda want the trend to end, but I can’t help but enjoy it while its still strong… Cause when we see fools like this rockin’ the Coogi, what’s next? Zack Morris phones and TLC clown hats (again)?

This is one of the BcB writers' uncles. Can you guess whose?
