It may be far from sweater weather, but fans of The Cosby Show are facing off on Cliff Huxtable’s favorite fibers.

And behind it all is Bill Cosby himself.

This week, the actor, 75, launched a comprehensive March Madness-style face-off on BillCosby.com, asking fans to vote for their favorite sweater worn by Cliff Huxtable on the iconic television series that ran from 1984-92.

With 32 knits battling it out for top honors – to be crowned the “Champion Stitch” – categories start with “The Crew,” then narrow down to 16 in “The Sweat,” the top 8 will be named “The Fleecy” and the final four will be “The Warmest.”

Upon voting users will be entered to win an autographed copy of one of Cosby’s books.

Fans of Cosby’s colorful ’80s style can also get their fix at The Cosby Sweater Project, a Tumblr dedicated to illustrations of sweaters worn on The Cosby Show.
