Mark Cohen's Sweater & Scarf

Looking for Mark's trademark maroon and light blue sweater?

We've received a number of inquiries asking if we still sell the RENT� sweater. The answer is yes.

Mark's sweater and scarf continue as our top selling reproduction knitwear - currently outselling the sweaters, scarves and even the cardigans in Hobbie's Harry Potter� inspired wizard wear collection.

A couple weeks ago, we added a t-shirt version of the trademark sweater. This is a lightweight version of our original design.

We custom knit the sweater for lead actors in youth theater productions, High School drama productions, as well as other theater productions.

If you have any questions regarding either version of the sweater (or the scarf), be sure to contact us through the SHOP. Click on the red tab to open the contact form

Did you play the role of Mark in a theater production or are you interested in assembling a complete "Mark Cohen" look or costume?
