J. Crew's Tabby Cat Sweater Is "Feline Fabulous"

Tabby sweater

The January 2013 J. Crew catalog landed in my mailbox over the weekend, and in between pages of patent leather wedges and polka-dot blouses, I discovered an unexpected bit of feline fashion. 

The navy Tabby sweater ($98) doesn't just depict a random kitty, but was actually inspired by a designer's cat, named Toby: "We created a sketch of her favorite feline and made it the center of attention on our classic wool-blend crewneck with a touch of angora for softness. The pattern is intarsia knit into the sweater instead of on top—a more difficult and time-consuming process but totally worth it."

We already know that cat sweaters are a huge trend right now, but you be the judge: Is the J. Crew Tabby sweater a feline fashion do or don't?

Great looking sweater! But does it come in plus sizes and with 3/4 sleeves?

I think it is a good looking sweater, especially the yellow cat. I really like the cat design except for the nose part. But I could get used to it.
