    Okay, But WTF Is With This Sweater?

    My nipples are cold just looking at this.

    Have you ever seen a piece of fashion that made you question the state of humanity? Because that happened to me this morning and I feel like I just can't keep this to myself:

    ::Scratches head for several seconds::

    Made by Calvin Klein, this "Multicolor Wool Cheerleader Sweater" is sold by luxury retailer Ssense for a mere €1,810 (Roughly $2,165) — although, SORRY, it's currently SOLD OUT.

    I know, I know, put your wallets away.

    At first I was like, "WAIT. How does this even work?!" And then I was like, "OHHH I see. It has a sheer torso piece."

    I get it now.

    But, that still doesn't answer the question, "Why does this have thick sweater sleeves, too?"

    I need answers, people! I mean, not really, but I hate not "getting" things.

    Like, I guess you could wear a vest over it? But that would just defeat the purpose of the sheer chest. And, like, what kind of weather warrants "it's too hot out to cover up my chest, but also it's so chilly my arms are cold?"

    So conflicted.

    So, if you're in the market for a sheer, nipple-exposing top with heavy, knit long sleeves, it looks like you're SOL.


    For now, anyway.
