    Ranking The 200 Best Sweaters In "Friends" History

    Just in time for fall.

    A couple notes on this definitive ranking:

    1. This is the definitive ranking. All other rankings of Friends sweaters are illegitimate.

    2. This ranking is completely arbitrary please don't argue with me.

    3. There are no sweatshirts included here. There are a lot of great sweatshirts on Friends, but that's another post.

    4. If I couldn't conclude whether a top was a sweater or just a shirt, I did not include the top.

    5. Gunther never wore a sweater.
