The Fashion Inquisition: Coogi- More Than a Sweater?

Thrifting is my most beloved hobby when I get a moment of free time. I come across the good, bad and just plain zany when I go on these excursions. Usually, I enjoy pieces that are tongue-in-cheek like Boy Scout shirts, old lady shades and sweaters. These things are great when found secondhand. Yesterday, however, a customer came into work wearing jeans that said “” and had crazy neon embroidery across the front. To say the least, I’m still confused. I thought sweaters were for retired playboys living in golfing communities in South Beach. Regardless, I pulled a few photos of this “contemporary Coogie” movement I’ve been seeing. I think it’s whack, but what is your opinion?
