Challenged to design a holiday pullover based on a traditional Christmas song, I decided to play off of “The Little Drummer Boy” to pay homage to one of the greatest rock ‘n roll drummers of all time. In these colors, the piece feels a little less “holiday”, and a little more “rockstar”. If you’re looking for more traditional holiday attire for your little drummer boy, just swap the teal & gray shown here for red & green, and you’ve got an instant Christmas classic!
