Meet Sam Barsky: He Makes Matching Sweaters Of Places He Visits

His name is Sam Barsky and he loves travel… while wearing a sweater that shows exactly the place he’s visiting. Brilliant. Reminds of this guy who has somewhat similar (yet different) spin on this kind of art.

  1. You know when a friend goes to one of those painting nights and picks up a trick or two about how to smear acrylic across a piece of canvas, and then the wine wears off but they still think they’re hot stuff and have a notion that they are tapping into some heretofore hidden Bob Ross they never thought they had in them, but no one has the heart to tell the friend that they really and truly suck?

    Dude, these sweaters are awful.

  2. Wonderful. Thinking, planning, realizing, travelling, spending a lot of money. Dreaming the next step… makes me think of Amelie Poulain.

  3. The comments here are really mean. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that this is an average guy with an average body and average abilities who dares to put himself up front. Anyway I find the idea really cool and I think this guy has a great sense of humour and is also not afraid to put himself out there for his jokes.
    But hey, I guess it also take courage to disguise your body shaming through an anonymous comment on a website.

  4. I don’t know if any of you who are being needlessly mean have ever knit a sweater but it is a big time investment, especially considering he had to design it before knitting it. Rock on, sweater guy!

  5. Two things can be true at the same time: that the guy is clever and earnestly put in great effort to make a commemorative sweater, and also that the sweaters are not terribly attractive.

    Simply propping him up to keep from hurting his feelings is how we got Pete Buttigieg.

  6. The handmade loose style of the sweaters raises a lot of questions.
    One of many quirky people in this world (of the non-dangerous kind) that keeps life unexpected, wonderful, amazing. Who would have thought someone would do such a thing.

  7. I’m also a knitter. Great job and love your sense of adventure. As for the nasty remarks, they’re just jealous losers.

  8. Well, I admire his effort, but please don’t show these pictures to my wife or I’ll be wearing one of these sweaters for my next birthday!

  9. The timeline confuses me. He travels to x, takes a picture? Then takes quite a while to knit the sweater … still at location x? Or he goes elsewhere, or home, knits … but he takes the picture of place x whi!e wearing appropriate sweater, so when and where does he make the sweaters? How many times does he visit each location??? Think!!!! Then tell me, please.

  10. as someone who neither travels, or knits, i admire the guy. plus, it looks like he’s living life to the fullest. not sure why so many ppl have a problem with this unless they’re really just pissed about the utter inadequacy of their own lives.
