The death of Mr. Rogers (RIP) in 2003 left a gaping hole in the famous-man-in-cozy-knit-sweater community, but luckily for us all, the Michael Jackson, man of many talents, is here to fill the void.
When he wasn't moonwalking in the $1.8 million "Thriller" jacket or walking the red carpet with Brooke Shields, M.J. was the proto-Mr. Autumn Man. In honor of his cozy legacy, we've rounded up some of the King of Pop's best knitwear looks. (Note: this roundup elicited some controversy in the GARAGE office as to what, exactly, qualifies as a sweater. For our purposes, a hoodie is a sweater, while something like this remains more of a jacket, despite its seemingly cardigan-like luster.)
