The 92 Firetruck or “Carlton Banks” Sweater

This miniature recreates the iconic Firetruck sweater released in 1992.A must have amongst collectors, this whimsical woolen wonder combines knitted graphic depictions of a firetruck carrying a christmas tree, forest green snow flakes,plaid style interlocking patterns and nordic inspired influences.It is also known as the “Carlton Banks” due to the side kick character to Will Smith on the popular series wearing the sweater.Carlton was known for his rather clumsy nerdy style and this ugly chic sweater seems to be perfect for such a character but has been adopted by street kids, collectors and old folk alike! This miniature was created over many hours entirely from clay including every snowflake,spot and detail on the sweater
