Ken Bone’s Red Sweater Is Getting Seriously Funny Rave Reviews Online

Paul J. Richards—AFP/Getty Images Ken Bone (C) listens to US Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump during the second presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis on Oct. 9, 2016.

"If it's good enough for Ken Bone, it's good enough for me."

Internet hero and undisputed winner of the the second presidential debate Ken Bone has single-handedly revived the preppy classic, the cable-knit pullover sweater.

Not convinced? Just take a look at the rave reviews that have rolled in for his Izod, 1/4 zip sweater on Amazon after he sported a bright, tomato-red version of it during the debates.

Reviewer Christopher C. Curtis said that, “Some heroes wear capes. Others wear IZOD Men’s Cable sweaters with a quarter length zipper,” while reviewer billygumdrop wrote of his XX-Large sweater that “If it’s good enough for Ken Bone, it’s good enough for me. Power to the people!!!”

Other reviews include:

I was inspired by future President of the United States Ken Bone. I love everything he stands for and that includes beautiful quarter zip red sweaters. #4yearsofsweaterweather” — Timothy Chippy

What an amazing sweater. So happy to be ordering the same sweater the man, the myth, and the legend, Ken Bone wore.” — Joseph

With this kind of influence with the American public, it seems as though either candidate would benefit from having the undecided Mr. Bone vouch for them.
