Feeling the chill yet? If there’s one positive to the colder weather it’s the opportunity to immerse yourself in knitwear again. Beyond the handsome comfort of the fabric, knit remains a steadfast sartorial hit since its inception into mainstream fashion as a cool must-have asset rather than Christmas kitsch, returning year after year to make waves in menswear.
Knitwear’s adaptability adds to its enduring appeal. It’s one of those rare textiles that’s as impressive worn over a shirt in the office as it is inside a tailored suit for those seasonal parties or even a winter wedding. With knit, there’s a colour to complement every man, from the classics (camel and black) to the new entries for AW17 (rose and blue) and the rewards to wearing knit are endless.
Beyond being a very relevant trend for this time of year, they are also pieces you’ll come back to time and again. The masculine cuts and timeless colours of these new designs promise to inject craftsmanship and quality into proceedings, whether you’re opting for slick suavity or laid-back louche. Here, we present the key knitwear looks to nail this season.
