Mod Sweater

Back in 1965 the Mods were starting to turn the heads of the fashion savy worldwide...and GQ didn't fail to talk about them. Shown in this cover from early 1965 is a very Mod short sleeve sweater/shirt. The designer is unknown but I can venture and say it is from Ted Lapidius. I like this piece of clothing a lot and consider it in my opinion the menswear equivalent of the legendary YSL Piet Mondrian pieces...More than a garment, this tricolored sweater/shirt is a piece of geometric and modern art.
