Arguably the best thing about this time of the year is the fashion. Is there anything better than throwing on a comfy sweater, some jeans and going on with your day? But if you’re not sure what sweater to wear when—or which basic ones every dude needs in his closet—Garmany’s style pros are here to help.
Try one or all of these 5 men’s sweater styles on for size:
The crew neck is basically the T-shirt of sweaters—it can be worn over tees, under jackets and with jeans or dressier trousers. An Autumn Cashmere crew neck sweater in cashmere is soft and versatile, and will quickly become your new go-to.
The slightly dressier version of a crew neck, V-neck sweaters are professional-looking but still effortless, making them the perfect pick for a casual office environment or just about any type of weekend adventure. We love Rag & Bone’s extensive selection of crew necks in both solid colors and prints.
Today’s cardigans are preppy and put together, masculine and modern. Layer a cardigan from Peter Millar over a tee shirt or a dress shirt to look instantly dapper.
Turtlenecks are a must for those too-cold-to-function days and can be worn on their own or under sportcoats, leather jackets or heavier sweaters.Ermenegildo Zegna has turtlenecks in cotton, wool and cashmere to suit every style (and temperature).
Also referred to as a pullover sweater, the half-zip is a key layering piece. It can be worn both as a top layer over a collared dress shirt or tee or as a middle layer under either a sportcoat or jacket. It also helps frame the face, much like a collared shirt would. Try a half-zip sweater from Belstaff with buttons or a zipper.
