Are there any straight men, except Tommy Hilfiger of course, that knit?

Millions, probably.

  • Knitting used to be a men-only profession, protected by guilds.
  • In many countries, knitting is (or used to be) taught to all children; and historically, all children were involved in wool preparation, including carding and spinning.
  • Many men involved in fishing or sheep farming were knitters, as often, were soldiers.
  • My father (below) taught me to knit, and his lacework was something to behold.
Like a silverback in a suit.

PS: I can’t find any indication that Tommy Hilfiger knits. He may well sell knitwear, but he almost certainly doesn’t knit or design it.
