Everybody should have some knitwear in their wardrobe for getting out on chilly days. Knitwear should be a staple in a mans wardrobe and can be worn with many pieces of clothing. We have picked 7 pieces of knitwear that can be worn all seasons and will match most outfits.
7] Ted Baker (£99)
This Ted Baker pull over is a great piece for casual wear. Inspired by the need to layer up on breezy days, the Par top is shaped in a regular fit with a collar that zips up to keep you cosy. Ensuring the balance is struck between function and form, sleek stripes race around the elasticated trims and the brand’s seal of approval sits at the chest in contrasting lettering.
6] Community clothing (£79)
Everyman should have a cardigan at the ready. Community Clothing is starting a movement by making its everyday luxurious basics right here in the UK, in factory downtime, employing skilled workers from across communities. Designed to give you lasting service rather than be in the service of throwaway trends, the 2 ply lambswool cardigan is given subtle, confident detailing with discreet front pockets, pearlescent buttons and squared-off saddle shoulders.
5] Alex Mill (£125)
When the occasion straddles the line between smart and casual, this Alex Mill shawl-collar cardigan is a reliable choice. It’s knitted from substantial loopback cotton, and has contrasting anthracite tipping.
4] John Smedley (£145)
This V Neck should be a staple. John Smedley still crafts its knitwear in the same English factory where the label was founded over two centuries ago. Pleasing in fit and feel, this ‘Blenheim’ sweater is spun from premium merino wool in a deep midnight-blue hue, making it a discerning alternative to black.
3] Hugo Boss (£150)
Finely knitted from premium virgin wool, Hugo Boss navy cardigan is versatile and light enough to be worn over everything from casual tees to collared shirts. The lack of pockets creates a more streamlined profile, while the grey internal trim adds a discreet point of difference to the simple design.
2] NN07 (£110)
Though committed to a global perspective, NN07 does favour the clean-lined minimalism of its Copenhagen homebase. This ‘Phil’ sweater is rib-knitted from substantial cotton and has a semi-fitted shape that makes it adaptable for a whole host of occasions. It’s finished with a discreet designer tab at the hem – the dot logo represents a world (and clothing) without boundaries.
1] Polo Ralph Lauren (£115)
The enduring popularity of Polo Ralph Lauren is due to its commitment to quality construction and smart design. A faultless staple, this crew-neck sweater is cut slim from Pima cotton that is both soft and durable.[image from selfridges, mrporter]
