As a Deadhead, my closet is stuffed to the gills with Grateful Dead-related threads and dry goods. I haven’t taken a proper inventory in years, but I’m pretty sure I could wear something with a Stealie or a bolt every day for a month without any repeats. Hats, shoes, towels, socks, hoodies, and limited edition shirts – You name it, I probably have it with a Grateful Dead logo on it. I don’t have a highly coveted 1992 Lithuania men’s basketball team tie-dye – I’m neither Jonah Hill levels of rich nor cool – but hey, one can dream, right?
The one thing I don’t have in my Dead collection? A proper Grateful Dead sweater.
Last year, Schott NYC released their Grateful Dead Cotton Fair Isle Sweater. It’s an officially-licensed collab that features the word Aoxomoxoa – after the iconic 1969 album – as a palindrome stitched in the bottom of the sweater. It’s knit from 100% cotton with a soft textured finish and features a classic crewneck silhouette.
The vibe is subtle and effortless – the perfect conversation starter for ugly sweater parties during the holidays.

Schott also released a Dead sweater with the Grateful Dead’s bear logos, mixed in with a proper ying-yang, along with a Stealie wool blend sweater.
