A sweater is like wearing a hug except you never have to worry about being held for 12 seconds too long or whether a jumper has ulterior motives for hugging you. This is good, as people suck more than ever now, and proper hugs are in short supply. So make them obsolete with the 21 snuggly, cuddly (but never in an awkward way) options ahead.
