Thanks!" to Silver Lining (in this post) who pointed out an interesting addition to J.Crew's Collection line: the Collection Cashmere Popcorn Sweater (item 08441).
Some of you might think its the whopping $498 price tag alone, that got the Popcorn Sweater nominated for this dubious honor. As Silver Lining amazingly noticed, it is the care instructions that are baffling: "We recommend folding (never hanging) and storing in tissue paper." This is preceded by, "Treat yours with love and it will last forever." Why don't they just say, "We strongly recommend not wearing the sweater to maintain shape. For best results, store it in a locked cedar chest and throw away the key. With love and non-use, it will last forever."
Plus, did you check out the following: "This is not the popcorn sweater you had in the '80s. Ours is superplush and covered in raised dots everywhere except the sides, so it's still slim in the right places." Yeah, when you mention 80's and sweaters... I am going to think Cosby sweaters. Now that is all I can think when I see this. I am gonna pass on this hand-wash-only-top.
are your thoughts on the Popcorn Sweater? Would you buy
this or leave it at the store? Have you see this first hand, and if
so, what are your impressions?
P.S. Every time I see or hear "popcorn", I think of Schmidt from Fox's the New Girl... video here.
