    I bet a black guy in certain parts of Detroit could get some play wearing a Coogi.

    Wow, I did not even know what they were. Thanks for enlightening me. I will now go put a fork through my eyeball to feel better.

    I have a couple, and wear them very occasionally when I'm in the mood. One is a classic heavy cotton pullover in Cosby style, and the other is a heavy cardigan in wool that is bright but very well made (also smooth instead of having that ruffled/textured fabric). At the times I choose to wear them, I most certainly do not care that they're not in style. They are, shall we say, expressive, and more than a little chaotic.

    Coogi and Robert Graham have something in common. Crap, trashy, horrendously awful, but a segment of the population think these brands are the definition of coolness. They have their niche market, collectors love em, but anyone with taste will use these garments for wiping the rim of their toilet.

    I'm not familiar with the brand, but are they those big chunky things with garish colours and patterns, popular in the 80s I think? I certainly wouldn't wear one now.

    They look great under a nice navy peacoat.

    I've owned these sweaters since the 80s and continue to acquire them as good ones turn up. Ironically I never associated them with Cosby or hip hop; those associations came later; I just saw them and liked them. If you want to wear the same clothes as everyone else they're not for you. But if you want something unique- and each one is different, you can't go wrong with these. They will also only appreciate over time. Tundra sweaters from Canada are just as good. The only downside with either one is you have to watch out for pulls.
