As a guy with a closet full of argyle sweatervests, I’m particularly interested in the argument that the Santorum Surge is due, in no small part, to his wearing of wearing of sweatervests:

The sweater-vest signals wholesomeness. Sweater-vests are nonthreatening. But since a sweater-vest does not, of course, actually make you a good person, they are the perfect disguise for nasty men.

One of the most difficult moments I have ever faced in my adult life was that moment when I stopped wearing my dress-shirts untucked underneath my sweatervests (for that never-too-old collegiate look) for the tucked-in professorial vibe.
