Good news for sweater-lovers: Retailers, in their rush to keep men shopping, are stocking up on the knit staples. "It's the one thing men always feel comfortable in," said Tom Longo, owner of the Metro Men's Clothing boutique in South Philadelphia. "Not to mention, sweaters are one of the few items they can wear out and to work. " Trends this cold-weather season are all about the classics meeting the eclectic. Pullover sweaters with deep V-necks and leather patches on the elbows are really in. Shawl-neck cardigans - yes, like Mr. Rogers - are also hot for guys, as is the cozy fisherman look.

At the Men's Fashion Association preview this past spring in Rye, N.Y., almost every fashion show was indistinguishable from the next, with the same sullen models striding down a runway to less-than-stirring music. And then it was Joseph Rokaz's turn. Rokaz definitely had different ideas. James Brown sweated out "Living in America" while Daniel Kron photographs showed 110 quite real people - dancing Rastafarians, toughs with Mohawks, old Jewish couples - having a pretty good time while wearing Rokaz sweaters featuring bright, jazzy prints.

It was an injured shoulder eight years ago that forced Anna Tumas to give up her beloved knitting, an art form she had learned growing up in Germany. So when she faced a very shrunken wool sweater after accidentally washing it in hot water, the lightbulb went on. For the last several years, this Cinnaminson woman has taken the loveliest old wool and cashmere sweaters she can find and recrafted them into baby sweaters. Shelves in her home workroom bulge with a rhapsody of pastels, brights, and occasional print sweaters seized like pirate's booty at thrift shops and yard sales.

Short-sleeve sweaters are not only trendy, but practical, the perfect style for transitional weather. "I love, love, love short-sleeve sweaters," says Lindsay Huggins, senior fashion-market editor for Self magazine. "They are becoming a wardrobe staple. They are fun to wear, especially at this time of year when you want something because it's chilly, but if the sweater is too long, then you are too hot. " Sweaters are evolving into silhouettes that mimic other garments in a woman's wardrobe, says Gregg Andrews, Nordstrom's fashion director.

Give me a P. Give me a sweater. That is the lament of 11 cheerleaders from Pennsauken Middle School whose white sweaters - emblazoned with a crimson P - were apparently stolen from a storage closet in a locked basement at the school. School principal James Chapman said yesterday that the four-year-old sweaters, which could have been taken anytime between last spring and last week, were discovered missing when adviser Alexandra Housman went to retrieve them from the closet at the start of the school's basketball season.

Every Tuesday morning, Sarah Lemire goes tearing through Manhattan, shopping for a family of six with unusual needs and a budget of $3,000. It doesn't make her task any easier that the family is unrivaled in popularity, with a patriarch unequaled in his perfectionism. Lemire is costume designer for The Cosby Show, which NBC modestly describes as "the most successful comedy series in the history of television. " Now in its fourth season, the Thursday-night program can also boast of presenting television's best-dressed family, due to Lemire's consummate taste and unflinching eye for detail.

Allegedly to bypass a trade embargo on Chinese goods in 1983, Eagle's Eye Inc. shipped in 13,983 pairs of children's and ladies' pants labeled "Made in Hong Kong," when the clothing had been made in China. Some alert U.S. Customs agents got wind of the illegal practice, and when Eagle's Eye shipped 7,050 women's sweaters to Philadelphia on Oct. 28, 1983, they were seized. The labels on the sweaters said "Made in Japan," but many had been manufactured in China, and the rest had been made in Hong Kong, according to federal authorities.

What gets you in the mood? I'm not talking about that mood, I'm talking about a holiday mood. For the record, what gets me in that mood is Bradley Cooper, but I have a feeling I'm not getting him for Christmas. Ho-ho-horny. But to stay on point, the holidays are upon us, and we're all performing the 300 tasks required thereby, primarily shopping. So this year, to make my life easier, I had the great idea to do all my shopping online. But, like many of my allegedly great ideas, it had a downside.

A moment of silence will be held at Utah's next game Wednesday and players will wear black patches in honor of a man Utah athletic director Chris Hill remembered as a "basketball savant. " Majerus died Saturday in Los Angeles while awaiting a heart transplant.

Question: I have an asphalt-shingle roof that I am thinking of replacing. In our neighborhood I have seen other roofs replaced. Some have had the old shingles removed and others have had the new shingles installed over the existing ones. Is one way better than the other? I imagine putting new shingles over the old ones is cheaper, but is it as good? Answer: It is cheaper, but I've never considered it wise. My roof was done just before I bought the house, and I've seen just one layer underneath.

By Steve Frank When the good Republicans of Iowa rewarded the sheer doggedness of Rick Santorum's 99-county campaign last week, the Republican presidential campaign took an oddly personal turn for me. The ensuing "week of the sweater vest" in national politics connected me - or at least the contents of my closet - to one of the GOP candidates for the first time. We will soon find out whether Santorum's Iowa momentum will pay dividends in New Hampshire, South Carolina, and beyond.

Whoever coined the phrase "and many happy returns" never tried online shopping. Is there such a thing as a happy return? If I were happy with the item, I'd keep it. Nobody has intimacy issues with a great gift. But this is a story about giving gifts, not giving them back. I love choosing gifts for people, but this year I was under deadline and on a budget, so online shopping seemed like the way to go. My mom asked for dog sweaters. You could've guessed that, right?
