Whether you’re looking to up your crew neck game or wondering what knitwear types go best with your outfit, we’ve got your back! It’s time to get down to the knitty-gritty deets of how to style men’s knitwear for all occasions.

Keep it Laid Back in Men's Casual Knitwear

Get in your comfort zone with our cosy men’s knits and jumpers! Nothing says casual cool more than a comfy oversized sweat. Here’s our go-to styles for the ultimate laid back look.

Crew Neck Jumpers

Crew neck jumpers for men are the way to go! With their distinctive round neckline and loose fit, this jumper gives off cool and relaxing vibes. Pair it with some trusty joggers for the definite loungewear look. Or why not add a trendy pair of cargo trousers to the mix? Pair them with a crew neck men’s cable knit jumper and relax knowing you’ve nailed the go-to casual outfit for men.

Long Cardigans

Long cardigan styles make for classic casual streetwear attire. This knee-length style doesn’t just help keep you extra warm, it also looks effortlessly cool. Pair with a loyal white tee and your favourite pair of skinny jeans and accessorise with matching scarf and beanie and you’ve got yourself the perfect autumn outfit!

Oversized Jumpers

It doesn’t get comfier than wearing a good old men’s oversized jumper, which is why every guy needs this staple! With plenty of oversized jumper styles to choose from, from distressed men’s jumpers to chunky knit, the styling options are infinite. We like to pair ours with contrasting bottom halves: think cropped trousers, cargo pants or even skinny jeans.

Zip-Up Jumper

Are you an always on-the-go kind of guy? Then a men’s zip-up jumper will be your best mate. This versatile casual fave can easily be zipped up come cold weather, and zipped back down come sunshine, making it the perfect autumn choice. The styling combos with zip-ups are many. Going for a jog? Wear your zip-up jumper with joggers and a quilted gilet. Chilling at home? Wear it over your comfiest PJ bottoms.

Polish Up with Our Men's Smart Casual Jumpers

The smart casual jumper look is all about the ‘trying but not trying’ kind of vibe. So, elevate your layering game for work drinks, dinner dates, or that Sunday lunch with the in-laws.

V-Neck Jumper

Our wide range of men’s v-neck jumpers put the V back in vogue! Stylish, effortlessly smart, and super easy to style with literally any bottom halves, we think v-necks might just be our smart-casual faves. Looking for smart casual office wear for men? V-necks are where it’s at! Add chinos and either Chelsea boots or loafers to complete the look and you’ve got a perfect men’s work outfit. 

The trusty men’s v-neck is back! That’s because this knitwear style can easily be dressed up for any formal occasion. Simply pair with a crisp Oxford shirt and suit trousers. This timeless outfit oozes style and elegance all over, making it a failsafe option.

Shawl Neck Cardigan

Unsure what a shawl neck cardi is? Let us introduce you to the KING of smart casual wear. A versatile halfway point between a casual jumper and a smart blazer, this knitwear style combines the lapels of a suit with the comfort of knitwear. It’s basically a win-win item! So, if you’re wondering how to nail the smart casual dress code for men, simply pair your men’s shawl neck cardigan with chinos, a classic shirt and brogues.

Roll Neck

Roll into winter in one of the most stylish men’s smart casual items. Men’s roll necks add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Go for a classic black roll neck for a sleek look. Or opt for colourful options to liven up any outfit. If you’re wondering what to wear under a blazer without it looking ‘too much’, a rollneck and blazer combo is your best bet. Go for the colour-block look head to toe. Or combine different tones of the same colour to achieve that refined casual look.

Zip Neck

Here come the zip neck jumpers, bringing handsome urban feels to your wardrobe! This jumper style comes with a half zip on the neck, perfect for mid-season temperature changes. A plain shirt peeking through the half-zip jumper paired with some classy pleated trousers, is a recipe for a fit that fits the bill.

Look Dapper in Men's Formal Jumpers

Give the three-piece suit a rest and jazz up your men’s formalwear with our dapper range of formal jumpers.

Button Up Cardigan

Layer up like a true gentleman with a men’s button-up cardigan between your suit jacket and your shirt. Simply swap your waistcoat for this buttoned beauty, and you’ve got yourself a whole new three-piece…with an edge, of course!
