Fashion & Style Pulse: Lutz & Patmos Sweater to Benefit PDF

by Karin Nelson

Over the years, Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos of the innovative knitwear label Lutz & Patmos have worked with an array of guest designers on their dream sweaters, Sofia Coppola, Jane Birkin and Richard Meier included. Now added to the list is the Amtrak train conductor Chris Waugh, whom Ms. Lutz met on her weekly commute from New York to her house in Rhode Island. “He jokingly said that if we ever needed a guest designer, he knew the name of the sweater and the charity it would benefit,” she said. “We took him up on it.”

The Shoreline hoodie, named after the train Mr. Waugh works on, was inspired by his favorite Izod pullover and a sweatshirt of his daughter’s, and is dedicated to his father, who has Parkinson’s; $20 of each sweater’s purchase price will benefit the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation.

“This was a departure from what we’ve done before,” Ms. Lutz conceded.“But the only real difference in the design process was that it was all done on the train. We’d be in the middle of a fitting, and he’d be like, ‘Hold on, let me get New London, and I’ll be right back.’”
