Describe your all-time favourite jumper...
My all time favorite would have to be this reversible Mickey Mouse one i bought from a thrift for 10$. It had one big Mickey on one side and a bunch of small ones on the other. I would say that had to also be one of my best finds in a thrift shop also.

It use to be my grandma but since im a big boy now its a gentleman that works at the cleaners on the corner of my block.

My Hero would be Mr Bill Cosby. Not one episode of the Cosby Show did he not wear a DOPE Sweater
