It was my understanding that over-size sweaters/jumpers/jerseys were a thing for college youth in the 1950s/60s. Plus letters. Maybe his siblings didn't go to college. The decision to go without lower wear would be hard to justify were it not for the difficulty of drawing little chipmunk pants.

Myself, I think it is a fashion whose time has returned, for others: all politicians wearing giant jerseys sans pants, instead of suit and tie, would make a definite statement, of hepcat up-to-the-minute cool modernity.
