MWD: THE KNIT LIST

24.10.14

To make sure that you're as fashionably prepared as possible for the season's coldest moments, we've compiled of the must-know knitwear styles for AW14. From the style's stalwarts to the season's statement-making weaves, this week's Menswear Diaries muses on the endless aesthetic charm of the cornerstone of off-duty dressing during winter. Consider the knit list your guide to the season's most stylish men's knits.

THE HONEYCOMB KNIT

Thanks to the honeycomb knit's chunky textural weave, it's an easy way to add aesthetic interest to your look without making too bold of a statement. Our favourite way to wear the knit is crew necked and in a vibrant hue. For maximum comfort and warmth, opt for a pure cotton style. Ideal for the season's bracing temperatures, the heavy gauge knit typical of this style of weaving means that it's sure to become your go-to all season long.

THE ROLL NECK JUMPER

No longer the de facto uniform of the intelligentsia, the roll neck jumper has enjoyed something of a style revival of late. Thanks to its many thicknesses, guises and fabrications, the style is ideal for wearing as part of both semi-formal and relaxed outfits. Worn with a blazer and chinos, or an overcoat with jeans, it’s incontestable, the most fashionable knitwear necklines are heading north for AW14.

THE CONTRAST PANEL JUMPER

For knitwear with flair, look to a contrast panel jumper. Thanks to its differently coloured constituent parts, this style is ideal for making a sartorial statement, but is best worn on days dressed down. When wearing this knitwear design, keep the rest of your styling simple, opting for dark or neutral complementary pieces.

THE FISHERMAN KNIT

As its name suggest, the fisherman knit jumper's name is derived from the style of weave worn by seafarers. Today, although the design may be altogether more fashionable, it's no less functional. Woven into a regular ribbed weave, add to the jumper's style stock by opting for a melange knit composition.
