During Season 6 of Stargate SG1 after Daniel Jackson has died and ascended, he appears multiple times in a variety of episodes. In the vast majority of these appearances he is wearing a cream/beige sweater.

This is the sweater I am talking about:

Prior to this point in the series I don't remember ever seeing him wear this sweater and I was wondering if it had any particular significance or if there is a known reason as to why his appearances as an ascended being feature this sweater?

Given the deific nature of the Ascended Ancients, I'd always assumed white was chosen as it represents the "Good Guys". Beyond that, I never really thought about it. Time to watch the series again and see if it mentions it. :D – MyCodeSucks Jan 17 '13 at 14:29
Sweaters are cool. – Daniel Roseman Jan 17 '13 at 14:40
It's the Godsweater. Bask in its glory. – John O Jan 17 '13 at 14:41
It's an allusion to Steve Jobs being an Ancient – DVK-in-exile Jan 17 '13 at 14:57
I forget which episode it was, but it might be sort of explained in the one where Daniel is in the diner with all the other Ascended Ancients. – Xantec Jan 17 '13 at 15:11

He wore it in "Forever in a day" (Season 3 episode 10) while attempting to resign from the SGC after the death of Sha're. It's significance may lie in there

He wore a shirt under it in that episode, vs. post-ascension. – Solemnity Mar 10 '13 at 3:20
Daniel sweater fan-fic here. – Solemnity Mar 10 '13 at 3:23
That scene takes place entirely inside Daniel's head. The obvious conclusion is that the sweater doesn't actually exist; it's just what Daniel thinks of himself as wearing when he's not paying attention. – Micah Mar 10 '13 at 4:16
