Is there anything wrong with a serious bachur or yungerman wearing a (black, blue) sweater? It seems that it is not accepted in many communities/yeshivos…March 5, 2017 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #1222167
Wait another week before asking this question it’s not Purim yet…(No there is nothing wrong with wearing a blue sweater)March 6, 2017 1:01 am at 1:01 am #1222168
A serious bachur knows better than to dress like he is bruisedMarch 6, 2017 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1222169
Lightbrite: well said!!!March 6, 2017 1:50 am at 1:50 am #1222170
YesOrNo: Thanks 🙂March 6, 2017 1:59 am at 1:59 am #1222171
No. Find something else to complain about.March 6, 2017 2:11 am at 2:11 am #1222172
FriendInFlatbush: Hey now hey now…
Maybe sheldy is a serious bachur and wants to know if it’s acceptable for him to wear sweaters in bruise-toned colors.March 6, 2017 2:13 am at 2:13 am #1222173
I believe it is okay to wear sweaters. Sweaters help keep warm when indoors or if it’s too warm outside to wear a coat but you’re still cold.March 6, 2017 2:16 am at 2:16 am #1222174
A black or blue sweater!!!
What can possibly be next???
Pink and orange striped socks???March 6, 2017 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1222175
I need an explanation.March 6, 2017 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1222176

You mean that in some communities it’s accepted for bachurim to be cold for no reason?

Why, you have a problem with that, Golfer? What do you think I’m wearing right now? (j/k).March 6, 2017 2:33 am at 2:33 am #1222178
Did you know that fleece is warmer than sweaters?
It’s also synthetic so may make for hot flashes when going indoors in flashesMarch 6, 2017 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #1222179
a serious bachur wearing a sweater is no doubt the greatest threat facing the klall. There should be mandatory attendance asifas to address it. Community resources must be committed to resolve it.March 6, 2017 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #1222180
We all have our styles and dress codes. I’m not aware that typically bochurim don’t wear sweaters, but if in your community they don’t you have three choices:
1. Follow the crowd.
2. Do as you please and not care about the crowd.
3. Move and find a crowd whose styles align with yours.March 6, 2017 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1222181
By “sweaters” do you mean:
1. Solid black (or white, dark blue or grey), either a sweater vest or a cardigan (with buttons) or long-sleeve pullover (usually enough of a V-neck for a tie)-preferably matching or coordinated with pants and jacket
2. Something colorful, with a picture or design on it.
I have frequently seen people (including myself, in a mirror) wearing the former, including under a kapote or beckeshe or suit jacket – and I have never seen Bnei Torah wearing the latterMarch 6, 2017 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #1222182
4. Give everyone a sweater with his name on it.
His FULL name.March 6, 2017 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #1222183
and contact info!!March 6, 2017 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm #1222184
Perfect idea Hashemisreading ~ Even if he tries to give the sweater away, someone will just send it back to him!March 6, 2017 9:31 pm at 9:31 pm #1222185
“2. Something colorful, with a picture or design on it.”
akuperma: That’s not a sweater. That was my Mother’s Day gift!March 6, 2017 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #1222186

Well it is a good topic of discussion for the CR as it is a lot less likely to lead to LH, MSR, onaas devarim, and machlokes than topics such as zionism; definitions of MO, Chareidi, & OTD; Trump & Clinton; drinking on Purim, etc.
Although I’m sure if someone really wnats to they can find a way.March 7, 2017 12:06 am at 12:06 am #1222188
Some people think change of Lvush is the road to OTDMarch 7, 2017 12:38 am at 12:38 am #1222189
So far no one here seems to think so.
And it’s pretty rare for everyone in the CR to agree on something.March 7, 2017 12:44 am at 12:44 am #1222190
Dunno if we are a representative sample of everyone in the CR.
But I do know that knitting sweaters is a great way to keep your hands busy.March 7, 2017 4:10 am at 4:10 am #1222191
LB, it’s less controversial than crocheting kippot serugot.March 7, 2017 6:49 am at 6:49 am #1222192
YY: Agreed. A+++March 7, 2017 2:06 pm at 2:06 pm #1222193
What an inane thread.
Starts off with an assumption that is not based in reality. Certainly not if you are referring to chareidi yeshivas.
Everyone knows that anyone who learnt in Brisk wears a sweater. They all do. And when I was recently visiting Eretz Yisroel, I lead in the Mir and saw many bochurim and yungeleit wearing sweaters.
I guess it is +1 for silly people who think this really happens. (Sarcasm).March 7, 2017 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1222194
When you wear black sweaters, little fuzzies are more noticeable.
Do they have those lint removers at the yeshiva?March 7, 2017 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #1222195
nishtdayngesheft, I don’t notice boys’ clothing. Barely notice girls’ clothing. Much more important things in life to focus on!March 7, 2017 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #1222196
sweaters in 90 degrees is a bad idea.
