Best Sweaters For Men
Cozy it up this season with some of the best sweaters for men
By Jonathan Hackman
Nothing is as cozy as the perfect sweater, but when it comes to men’s fashion, you have to be careful you don’t cross the line with a nerdy or dowdy sweater. How can you tell what is suave and what is stuffy? Read on to find out more about the best sweaters for men.
How you want your sweater to look is the first step to figuring out what to buy. For instance, for young and trendy hipsters, something that looks a little outdated – purposefully, of course – fits their style best. Other men have a more classic style that requires a modern twist on the designs of old. Still other men find their fashion tast leads them towards the newest and the best so only the highest quality sweaters are worth considering.
One of the main factors when choosing the best sweaters for men is the fabric it is made out of. This will determine in great part the way the sweater falls when you wear it. The fabric can also determine whether you look cozy in your sweater or sporty and leisurely. Cashmere is, of course, the classic sweater material, but it is certainly not the only option. Cashmere is goat hair and is both very soft and rather expensive.
For durable and classic, wool is your best bet. A wool blend will give you the best look combined with durability. Keep in mind that wool, even when only part of a fabric, is very warm. This is one of the best sweaters for men because it can be worn in deep winter or late fall days outdoors, but you will want something lighter once the weather gets warmer.
