A sweater is a lovely gift choice for everyone regardless of age or gender. Chances are, most everyone needs at least one or two sweaters in their wardrobe, especially people who live in cooler climates. If there is a man in your life, be it a significant other, brother, father, or friend, and you want to surprise him with a thoughtful gift, a sweater is a great choice. There are so many fabulous sweater styles out there, so it won’t be difficult to find a sweater that he will love. In this post, we will take a look at some of the top sweater choices that make great gifts for men.
There is something about the cardigan sweater that makes it a very attractive look for a man. Wearing a men’s cardigan sweater just seems to instantly make a man look even more handsome and debonair. There are different collar choices to choose from when it comes to the cardigan sweater, ranging from a shawl collar to a straight collar. Whichever collar you choose will come down to the man’s style preferences. If you want to supplement a man’s pullover sweater collection with something a little different, the cardigan is a fantastic alternative. It’s classy, luxurious, and a great piece to wear for parties or a dinner out at an upscale restaurant. To maintain a fashionable look for a dressy occasion, stick to solid colored neutral tones. Print cardigans can be reserved for festive occasions or casual wear.
Men’s V-neck sweaters are a great choice for men because they are so versatile and can easily be incorporated into so many different outfits. V-neck sweaters can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the occasion and what the sweater is worn with. This sweater style can be worn with jeans or work trousers and comes in many colors, fits, and materials. For something dressier and more high-end, a cashmere V-neck sweater is perfect.
The crewneck sweater style is very similar to the V-neck sweater, however, as you might have guessed V-neck sweaters have a v-shape to the neck, while crewneck sweaters are slightly scooped and casual. You can shop around for various materials, including fleece, wool, and cashmere. Crewneck sweaters are also designed in different fabric weights, so you can find a crew neck style that is appropriate for each season. Crewneck sweaters can range from very affordable to pricier, depending on the fabric choice, fit, and design.
If you want to surprise the man in your life with a timeless sweater style that’s perfect for the fall and winter months, go with a men’s turtleneck sweater. A cashmere turtleneck sweater is especially decadent, but turtleneck sweaters are designed with all different material types, including fine knit cotton. If the man you are thinking of buying for isn’t ready for a full-blown turtleneck, he may like the style of a mock neck sweater (it’s like a turtleneck, but doesn’t offer as much coverage as a turtleneck). Both of these sweater choices look quite stylish with various bottoms, including khaki, denim, and work trousers.
While cardigans sweaters are typically left open and layered over a shirt or designed with a button-down front, zip-up sweaters (as the name implies) can be zipped up. This allows a man to zip up his sweater or leave it open whenever he wants to. Plus, with a zip-up sweater, a man won’t have to worry about messing up his hair the way he would with a pullover sweater. A high-quality zip-up sweater also looks fabulous when worn over a collared dress shirt, but it can really be worn over any shirt style. A zip-up sweater is also a fabulous choice because it can be worn as a second layer indoors or as a jacket outside when the weather is mildly cool. Alternatively, they can also be worn underneath a heavier outer layer like a winter coat.
As the name suggests, a quarter-zip sweater is a sweater that zips up, only a quarter of the way near the collar. Like the zip-up sweater, a quarter-zip sweater looks great over a dress shirt with the collar exposed. Quarter-zip sweaters also do a fantastic job of providing ventilation, so it will keep a dress shirt looking crisp and polished even after the quarter-zip sweater is removed. Quarter-zip sweaters come in many different styles, colors, and fabrics. It’s also the kind of sweater style that can be worn anywhere, from the office to a sports game to a dinner out to a camping trip in the woods.
