The Michael Bastian buzz has already moved on to spring 2013 (he presented the line yesterday at Fashion Week, to the typically upbeat reviews), but here’s something you won’t have to wait six months to get your mitts on…

This cashmere sweater with a nostalgic nod to Charlie Brown (hat tip). What’s not nostalgic: there’s none of the thick itchiness we can assume Chuck was constantly dealing with in his department store wool version. This, on the other hand, is luxurious stuff made in Italy and should add a nice tongue-in-cheek between your corduroy blazer and oxford button-down.

It’s a better look than going for “the Pigpen.”
