See Now, Buy Now: The Finisterre Westray Crew is Your New Favorite Sweater for Cold Weather

A classically rugged sweater made with modern fabric — can’t ask for much more than that.

The crew here at The Style Guide — by that, I mean me — is all about keeping you informed in any and all matters #menswear-related. So, when the time comes to step out in cozy, rugged fall style, I’d wager you’re going to want to throw on the Finisterre Westray Crew. Rest assured, we’re getting there … slowly but surely. And it certainly pays to be prepared when you need to layer up on a chilly fall day — the Westray Crew is going to get the job done admirably when the time comes. For one, Finisterre as a brand is rooted in function, designing the sort of easy-to-wear rugged fall gear that blends elements of classic style and modern functionality. Take, for instance, today’s See Now, Buy Now pick. The Finisterre Westray Crew calls to mind the sort of warm, tough layers you’d find out on the high seas — the cable knitting and use of Donegal tweed wool ensure that connection. And the Finisterre Westray Crew doesn’t skimp on functionality, either. The brand’s knitting technique and use of a textured tweed yarn with lanolin results in water-repellent qualities — that makes the classically rugged Westray Crew just a bit more durable than your average sweater, to say the least.

And that durability provides wearing occasions aplenty. The Finisterre Westray Crew is made for layering with a rugged denim trucker jacket, plus olive chinos and classic suede lace-up boots.

In fact, that combo would work well for a weekend coffee run or a day at the office in equal measure — just add a chambray shirt in either instance.  If you feel inclined to wear the Finisterre Westray Crew on its own, it can still provide comfort and warmth while standing out handsomely atop a merino long-sleeve crew shirt, slim black denim and rugged leather boots. Complete with textured stitching and a chunky ribbed hem, the handsome Westray Crew has got all the timeless details a stylish fall and winter sweater needs — that’s worthy of an investment right now, don’t you think? Let me know in the comments if the Finisterre Westray Crew will be making its way into your closet in time for cold weather.

Thanks for reading!
