There’s never a bad time to bolster your winter menswear rotation with one of the best winter sweaters, and if you can embrace a piece that’s both classic and yet decidedly on trend at the same time, then I say that’s all the better. Enter the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew, a burly and hard-wearing sweater to rival any one of the best men’s sweaters you might already have in your closet. Fisherman sweaters have never really gone out of fashion, serving as a classic reminder of when such sweaters were worn on the high seas and knitted primarily in the Aran Islands.
These days, brands like Buck Mason — already purveyors of one of the best men’s winter parkas and some of the best winter menswear deals — use modern fabric blends (like merino wool with nylon) to give sweaters like the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew some added punch. The result is a durable and dependable sweater that looks every bit like the classic icons your grandfather (and Hemingway) appreciated so much, yet with performance for 2022 in mind. The thick knit of this sweater is primed for frigid temperatures these days, and at a sub-$200 price, it’s not hard to see why the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew has been a hot seller.
The textured fabric and rugged knit of the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew make it as inspired a sweater as you’re apt to find these days, the kind you can easily wear with other favorites from Buck Mason, naturally. Take the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew and pair it with slim, dark Buck Mason men’s jeans and your favorite pair of leather boots for a tried-and-true combination that works at the office on a casual Friday or for a weekend brewery trip. Better still, the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew works when worn with an Oxford shirt (again, at the office) or atop — or beneath! — a more rugged flannel workshirt. It should be cut with enough room to layer, which is a great thing considering it’s knit thickly enough that you’ll want to reach for it when winter is at its worst.
The Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew features hand-linked panels, a careful process that extends the life of the garment beyond just sewing these panels. All in all, it’s precise-yet-rugged design touches that make the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew one of the best men’s winter sweaters, far and away. It’s pricier than your standard V-neck or crewneck sweatshirt (the Buck Mason Natural Donegal Cable Crew retails for $198 at Buck Mason), but it’ll go a long way towards making your winter that much warmer and more stylish. Consider adding it — or any one of Buck Mason’s stylish sweaters for men — to your wardrobe before it sells out.
