The 10 Awesomest Sweaters on the Internets

It’s winter, which means it’s probably getting cold where you live. At some point over the next few weeks, odds are good you’re going to dust off your sweater collection in hopes of keeping warm through the cold holiday months. V-necks, turtlenecks, cardigans and crew — oh, the variety! Let’s just hope that your trusty fave is half as cool as the 10 woven wonders below. So without further ado, we present the 10 awesomest sweaters on the Internets.

Motorcycles are awesome. So are helicopters. But together on a sweater they are divine. Top them off with a yellow neck and a pair of thrice striped sleeves and you’re rocking one seriously cool garment, which is kind of what you need when presenting a project called the Code of the Meniscus.

These shots are all part of the Clown Sweater Project, in which a size M sweater, purchased for $3.75 at a San Francisco thrift store, was photographed on as many people as possible, including semi-famous actor/blogger Wil Wheaton (far right), who uses the sweater in his avatar.

Was there ever a more famous sweater purveyor than the Cos? In a career filled with awesome sweaters, this one wins the race.

Chicks dig nerds. Haven’t you seen “The Big Bang Theory?” Wear this conversation starter the next time you go out clubbing with the homies, er H20-mies, and see what happens. One upside: Wherever you go you’ll have your own table.

Neil Diamond proves to KISS that there are a still a few unmined areas of merchandising to be explored.

This one’s from Swedish artist Karl Grandin. It’s made up of 180 different animal logos. It’s like, you know, a meditation on big business, ownership of media and it’s personal relationship to each of us. Or something.

High score.

Here are two, count ‘em two, tributes to the comic book reptilians known as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So nice, they knitted ‘em twice (but we’re only counting them once). How is it possible that these two distinctly different, yet markedly similar sweaters, both managed to exist… and be found… on the Internets. Cowa-fucking-bunga.

Help, a zebra ate my arm off!!!!

Two words: Beach sweater.
