Feasible: Form-fitting, everyday sweaters
Like I’ve said before, sweaters are not on this cursed Earth to further a fashion philosophy or agenda: they here to keep you warm when you’re going from one place to another. They’re very different animals from coats, which you might wear to a dinner party and therefore be judged on. Again, you wear a goddamn sweater when the sun goes down, the field freezes over, and Old Man Winter’s decided to challenge you. This A|X is perfect for the transit hop or trek during the cold months, and would never be considered an ugly piece by anyone’s standards.

There’s this weird trend in fashion, starting from the late nineties till the present, that I like to call BATTLE OF THE BRANDING. For some reason, a bunch of brands decided, “Hey guys, fuck original designs for our t-shirts, let’s throw our name on there with some FuNkY lettering! Yay!” The people at AX have always been particularly keen on the idea, and also happen to be the flat out worst at integrating their logo into the design of t-shirts.

Let me preface this Feasible option with a disclaimer: I don’t like logo integration at all really. OP just happens to be the best of the logo-crazy crap (like being the most handsome of the cavemen). You could walk by me in this and I wouldn’t scoff too loud.
