Or when we knit the fleeces of Montana’s most notorious ovine outcasts into a Black Sheep Sweater for the black sheep of the family. Now here’s our latest curious combination of designs and materials: Dress Pant Sweatpants. More than a pair of sweatpants, they're an experiment in sartorial subterfuge.
