Cosby Sweaters Make a Comeback This Fall

Bill Cosby–esque sweaters have made a resurgence in menswear stores across the city. We're talking bright, bold, bulky things that would make you visible from five miles away in an Arctic blizzard. (Insert your own joke about Sarah Palin's house and Russia here.) We noticed these frightening overthings last fall in Williamsburgian log-cabin-like restaurants and drinking establishments, but this fall they've infiltrated Manhattan. Now stores from the Lower East Side to Soho are channeling Cosby in ways we thought had been long buried in 5:30 a.m. time slots on network television. But unlike the knits of the eighties, these fashion statements don't come cheap. Click ahead to check out one of fall's gaudiest hipster trends.
