The fisherman’s sweater from ‘Knives Out’ that every guy needs

One of the runaway stars of Rian Johnson’s murder mystery film “Knives Out”—which boasts an A-list ensemble cast including Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette and Chris Evans—is the “Ransom sweater.”

That would be the cream cable-knit Aran sweater worn by Evans’ spoiled trustafarian Ransom Drysdale. Fans on Twitter couldn’t get enough of the Irish fisherman’s classic, dramatically worn with a privileged sneer and a few artful holes.

One user called called up Chris Pine’s sweater in “Wonder Woman” for a cine-knit-off.
