Hoodies have hooligan associations and sweaters can be uncomfortable in temperate weather. So between the two there's the cardigan. Invented by a white guy named James Brudennell, the 7th Earl of Cardigan, he wanted a layering piece that could be taken off and also be worn to future clam bakes and parent teacher meetings telling you that your kid "hasn't been the same since the divorce." L.L. Bean is a Caucasian staple and has its roots in New England, so you know it's real.
