We’ve seen a lot of cardigans but this one from L.A.’s Kzo stood out by virtue of those two lines running down either side.

For the unfamiliar, they’re tailoring seams, and they go a long way to explaining why the cut is so trim, and why the item looks as much like a lapel-less blazer as a cardigan.

Ever since the new bespoke movement took off, we’ve been seeing tailoring toucheslike this sneak into casual clothes. This is as good an example as we’ve seen so far—but we’re hoping to see far better before the year is out.

Is anyone out there brave enough to put a set of buttonholes on the cuffs of their hoodie?
