NEW YORK—Wasting no time in making the necessary introductions upon his return from the clothing store Wednesday, eccentric man Oliver Roberts promptly entered his bedroom and acquainted his new sweater with soon-to-be closet pals Colonel Coat and Captain Blazer. “Hear ye, hear ye! I would ask ye fine adornments to join me in welcoming our new sweater friend, who shall henceforth be known as Count Sweater,” Roberts said in an address to Colonel Coat and Captain Blazer, as well as to their wardrobe companions Madame Scarf, Lieutenant Gloves, and Doctor Belt. “It is my greatest wish that our new friend feels safe and comfortable in his new home and that he is included at all times. And no funny business from you, Miss Shoes—ah, I’m terribly sorry—Mrs. Shoes.” At press time, Roberts had left the attire to socialize among themselves but returned 10 minutes later on a nagging suspicion that the sweater had fallen victim to the pernicious pranks of Sir Hat.
