Why it seems like just yesterday Fred Rogers was teaching us the importance of a midday outfit change. Who would have guessed that Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which made its television debut in 1968, would become the impetus for the modern day Metrosexual movement? After all, he was the founding forefather of fashionable footwear.
And in honor of what would have been Mr. Rogers’ 80th birthday on Thursday, March 20, Family Communications Inc. (the non-profit agency started by Rogers himself) is asking everyone worldwide to wear their favorite sweater. Whether it’s an Indie-inspired cardigan, a crochet number that grandma whipped up or, for you bear-types, just good old fashioned man fur – make a date to honor the man who made it okay for boys to play make believe.
Okay, everybody sing along now:
So make the most of this beautiful day.
Just wear a sweater at the request of this list that is gay.
Or else, we won’t be your neighbor – bitch!
Won’t You Wear A Sweater?
