We noticed at the close of fashion week that the tennis sweater seemed poised for a post-preppy revival, and the evidence keeps mounting.

This pic comes from Gant Rugger’s newly released “prefall” lookbook, with the infamous sweater front and center. It’s not quite as low-cut as the Billy Reid and Brooks Brothers versions, but there’s no mistaking that tricolor stripe (by way of Thom Browne, we suspect) and the general air of sport. From the way he’s standing, he might even be auditioning for a linesman gig…
