This photo, on the home page of our local county library, caught my eye because the sweater that the boy is wearing has the same pattern as one I wore when I was a teenager, over 50 years ago.  I always thought of it as my Andy Williams sweater.  (I guess I was really uncool, because I liked the music of Andy and of Perry Como back then.)  Are sweaters like this making a comeback??

John, I’m so out of touch. I didn’t know they went anywhere, let alone are coming back!

I'm guessing that the design is timeless as so many people are wearing similar in all walks of life. I recall seeing a cycling jersey done with that design as well. Cool never falls out of favor if you like it.

Looks like an Argyll pattern. I’m 72 and I’ve worn Argyle sweaters and socks for most of my life. Hence, in my case Argyle is not coming back because it never went.

I think you're right.  I don't have any Argyle socks right now, but I remember seeing some for sale in a department store not too long ago.

I wore both pullover and button up sweater vests occasionally when I was working . My work required, or rather it was wise, wearing a suit and tie or along those lines. Exactly what depended on the clients I was seeing that day. It's up to the wearer to make what you're wearing "cool". You dig?

I never was a sweater man but I do like Williams and Como.
