Knitwear is big, baggy and bold for him this season, with oversized styles leading the way. Take a leaf out of Dolce & Gabbana’s book and opt for a floor-skimming scarf, slung loose around your neck, or channel Off-White with a long-line cardigan.
Cable knits and slouchy shapes are key AW20 knitwear staples; so seek out roomy styles in chunky wools and cashmere (the bigger, the better). A loose-fit cardigan from Polo Ralph Lauren or Marc O´Polo is exactly the look you’re aiming for, while a chunky scarf or will earn you extra kudos.
The roll neck
If you only invest in one new knitwear staple this winter, make it a roll neck. Versatile and great for layering, a roll neck is the perfect transitional piece to have in your style arsenal. Opt for classic black or grey from BOSS or Armani and welcome a little warmth into your wardrobe with retro tones of camel and biscuit from Hackett London.
Pair with dark denim and layer under a check shirt for a weekend look that taps into the American Western trend, or swap your shirt for a smart roll neck in luxe cashmere for a workwear look that radiates style.
Prints & patterns
Men’s knitwear is embracing a brighter side in AW20, with bold patterns and retro prints coming through in a kaleidoscope of dark and bright shades. Argyle is back in a big way, so keep an eye out for cardigans or jumpers that bear this classic diamond check, sticking with either natural hues or contrasting colours for 70s authenticity.
For a look that really throws it back, pair heavy knits from the likes of Lacoste and Tommy Hilfiger with a corduroy or checked tailored trouser from Marc O´Polo, or opt for a more subtle 70s influence with a flared jean from Levi´s in relaxed washed denim.
