(USA TODAY) If you read one article today, I hope it's this piece from Collectors Weekly about the enduring appeal of "Cosby Sweaters."
Many fans have created tributes to Dr. Huxtable's signature wardrobe from The Cosby Show, but these guys really get to the bottom of the trend by interviewing the man himself.
"We're talking about the knit/woolen things that look like the sheep were different colors or fell in some paint, right?" Cosby asks them.
Cosby goes on to say the sweaters came about because he didn't want Cliff Huxtable to be seen in a suit when he was just hanging out at home.
"I wanted to get away from the white coat all the time, or the blue blazer look, with the khaki pants and the penny loafers," he adds.
The publication also talks to Cosby Show costumer Sarah Lemire and designer Koos Van Den Akker, who created many of the sweaters.
Says Lemire: "The show was shot with multi-cameras, and back then they had a lot of problems with strobing, so it was very difficult to use certain patterns."
To see some of the sweaters the show did get away with, peruse the Cosby Sweater Project.
