gramps
stylish cardigan for your grouchy little old man
by Emily Wessel

We think it's hilarious how babies sometimes look like old geezers - so we created this shawl-collared grandpa sweater for your grouchy little old man! Suit him or her up and no matter how grumpy, your child will be stylish. And YES, despite reasonable common-sense notions, babies DO require pockets to store their tiny little pipes, and patches to prevent them from wearing holes through the elbows of their cardigans after years of use!
