Ask the MB: Black Sheep Sweater

Ask the MB: Black Sheep Sweater
Q: Where does the MB stand on the BetaBrand's black sheep sweater?
—Vik


A: As much as we are amused by the black sheep sweater's marketing concept, we don't actually own one. However, we've heard from several readers that at $120 this is a very good purchase, in spite of it initially smelling like the Irish barn they are made in. All it needs, apparently, is a little fresh air and it's fine. One reader likes it so much he called it a "lifer" and something he plans on handing down to his black sheep offspring.
