A garment more utilitarian than fashionable, the Lifer Sweater is a sweater that long-term employees keep on the back of their chairs so that they can adapt to the office thermostat. This sweater, often in a neutral color, doesn't leave the office. Evern. Once an employee brings such a garment to work, it is safe to assume that the owner isn't planning on going anywhere.
