That can be pulled up at will to cover the lower part of your face. The mouth opening, so you can talk while sipping your hot chocolate without freezing your ears, neck, and chin, is just a plus.

In other words, a solution in search of a problem, that also makes the person wearing it look like a TOTAL IDIOT for two reasons:


1) Unable to look in the mirror and realize just how ridiculous they look;
2) Willing to spend $$$$ to look this ridiculous.


In a way, one could consider this sweater an intelligence test.

That being said, it's just stupid looking in my opinion - and since I'm also allergic to wool, I'd end up with a rash on half of my face. So I'll pass, even if it were $9 instead of $900.
Exactly. Like if they made an red sweater with green lips, it wouldn’t have been noticed (other than for being ridiculously ugly). Basically any other color combo would have been fine.

if they just had 1 diverse person on their marketing board they wouldve avoided much embarrassment and loss of revenue.

If they had just one person of taste and class on their marketing board they could have avoided even more embarrassment and loss of revenue, because they wouldn't have spent time and money developing the racially offensive hideously ugly sweater, AND they would have avoided spending time and money developing the non-racially offensive but still hideously ugly variants of it.

But then how would they get the free advertising that comes with all the blog posts and articles written about the controversy?
