Shweater

noun; blending
sweater, usu. fitted, with attached shirt collar and cuffs ('try on that shweater') This type of garment (a sweater, usually fitted, with shirt collar and cuffs attached) has only recently come into fashion and therefore does not have a commonly accepted name yet. The television show it was discussed on advises people how to dress fashionably, so the host, upon seeing the above-mentioned garment, and perhaps not wanting to appear ignorant by not having a name for it, dubbed it a 'shweater' for its component parts.
 
It's a shweater!
Etymology : blend of 'shirt' + 'sweater'
