Mailbag: Shawl Collars? Really?

Regarding last week's article, Digger writes: Shawl collars? Really? I mean really? Answer: Really! This is an item that, like the cardigan, has been modernized considerably in its current incarnation. The key to success is to remember this simple rule: shawl collar cardigan (left, Hyden Yoo) = great; reads almost like an unstructured knit jacket. Shawl collar pullover (right, from Martin + Osa) = dear God no.
