History of the Cosby Sweater


For anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s, Bill Cosby's character on The Cosby Show was the cultural definition of "Dad". Just like your Dad he was kooky and embarrassing and this extended to his unusual taste in sweaters.


The key identifying feature of the head of the Huxtable-family was the now infamous Cosby Sweater.

The term Cosby Sweater is now often used to describe any sort of 80's/90's era sweater- but a true Cosby sweater usually has colourful geometric patterns, sometimes using a mix of various wools and fabrics. 

In recent years, these sweaters have become very fashionable with the resurgence of 90's style. 




(below) A few of the Cosby Sweaters we have in stock now at the store.





VICE recently tracked down the original designer of the sweaters Cosby would become famous for wearing on his show. Koos van den Akker began his work as a designer in his native Holland, then worked for a time in Paris at Christian Dior. He eventually moved to New York which was where his sweaters found their fate. A friend who knew the designer had him make a sweater for Bill Cosby as a gift and he loved it so much he started wearing during tapings and had the designer continue to create his one of a kind creations for him to wear.




Another great way to explore the vast world of Cosby Sweaters is
