Spotlight On Knitwear | For Him


Cooler temperatures, cosier knits

Hang loose this autumn/winter with slouchy cardigans and knitted roll necks in unashamedly retro shades.

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 Crew Clothing or French Connection is exactly the look you’re aiming for, while a chunky scarf  will earn you extra kudos.

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 Reiss or welcome a little warmth into your wardrobe with retro tones of camel and biscuit from Moss Bros.

 

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.

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 Ted Baker or Crew Clothing with a corduroy or checked tailored trouser, or opt for a more subtle 70s influence with a flared jean in relaxed washed denim.
