I wasn't sure why I loved it so much until a few weeks back when I went to see "Grease the Musical" at Queen Elizabeth Theatre. In preparation for a night of singing and dancing in my seat I decided to watch the movie... and that's when I saw it. Danny Zuko wearing his school's letterman sweater. The stripes on the sleeves were identical to the ones on my beloved Gap cardigan.
So it only makes sense that I would be drawn to a sweater that reminds me of a decade I was so fond of during my childhood.
