Wool & The Gang
Written by Marcus Jaye
One of the most tactile and luxurious menswear categories, knitwear's having a big moment. Hitting the sweet spot between casual and formal, it covers everything from tees to chunky knits, and takes you effortlessly from day to night.
Nothing kicks off the season better than a fresh-off-the-loom knit! That new, silky feeling is a highlight when it turns chilly.
We have a full collection to flatter every body type, with on-trend styles and colors. Rich browns and berry reds are accented with cool details and contrasting textures. Trust us to deliver, with crewnecks, waffle knits and textured mixes. Fine-gauge Merino wool offers rich, saturated color, while solid cottons are perfect for multi-layering.

Contrast color blocking and sports references abound: collegiate stripes and loop-back collar details give distinctive, original style. Knitwear should be the backbone of your cold-weather wardrobe. Getting it right and finding out what suits you isn’t as tough as it sounds. This year’s trend is all about wearing something slightly larger and slouchy. It works better in a thicker knit with a tee underneath.
When it comes to fine knits, sizing is extra-important: you don’t want to go too fitted or too tight. Look for something that sits well on the shoulders, but gives you the option of adding a layer (like a shirt or tee) underneath. You want the knit to cling to the right places while hiding others. Maybe go up a size and try something looser. Fine knits are great for work – especially if you have to wear a suit, and want a thin layer underneath.

Not packin' a washboard stomach? Go for something thicker and more textured. It's more flattering and you’ll feel less self-conscious. Another major knitwear trend: layering them. You can definitely put two knitwear pieces together – like a hoodie under a chunky knit or a thinner Merino under a turtleneck. Contrast colors, or mix-'n-match for a fun, guy version of the twinset.
When it gets really cold, use the lightweight knits as base layers and add a chunky knit or coat for the outer layer. Add simple pants and accessories to finish your look. Thanks to its great flexibility and wide range of styles, knitwear will be the best investment you make this year. From work to play, it’s as easy as a fall walk in the park.
