What shawl we decide? Vote on a trend!

The shawl collar sweater looks like it should be called the bathroom robe collar sweater. But I guess that doesn't sound as fashion-forward. Nevertheless, it's a huge new trend for men right now, and I think I like it (especially the one on the top left corner).

And since a male co-worker of mine implied I have been neglecting my male online readers, I thought I'd open it up for debate: What do you think? Would you wear it? Or would you have your significant other wear it? Leave a comment and let me know. Here are some examples to help you decide:

I really like it...for men or women. Very Chase Crawford on Gossip Girl.

I think it's great! A new twist on an otherwise hard to improve upon warm and fuzzy sweater!

I like them all and the models
