Much like the rest of the world universe, I immediately became a victim of Adele-itis as soon as the siren dropped her comeback single “Hello” in October. But after watching the video at least 30 times — not counting my restarts to see her close her flip phone — it hit me that the black and white gem was a video style post waiting to happen. It took me awhile to finally get around to it, but I refused to close out 2015 without making this post reality.

Her leading man Tristan Wilds‘ looks in the video in no way rival Adele’s checkered coat or cozy fur. But there was one standout piece that served as inspiration for my first video style story — the grey cable knit sweater he rocked during one of the doomed couple’s flashbacks.

So if you’re looking to leave your lover calling your phone 1000 times to organize a post-breakup chat, the cable knit sweaters I gathered above may be just what you need.
