Now that we’ve hit December — seriously, check your calendar! — you would do well to start adding some of the best men’s sweaters into your winter looks. In fact, a stylish winter sweater can serve as a centerpiece for all of your other men’s style essentials this season — in the right fit and fabric, the best men’s sweaters can be dressed up or down., worn with chinos or faded jeans in equal measure. Take the handsome Taylor Stitch Cashmere Elbow Patch Sweater, for instance. It’ll set you back a pretty penny, to be sure ($228 via Bespoke Post), but it’s an investment that pays dividends right away, from the refined profile to the rugged appeal of sheepskin leather elbow patches and the neutral Olive color. This is certainly the kind of sweater you can wear in more ways than one, and you should expect nothing less from the fine folks at Taylor Stitch. If it was possible to call a sweater “beautiful” — which it certainly is — mark my words, the Taylor Stitch Cashmere Elbow Patch Sweater would definitely qualify. Made from pure cashmere, hence the hefty price, this sweater should feel soft and cozy no matter if you throw it on over a classic white T-shirt or decide to pair it with a crisp white Oxford and a silver knit tie.
That’s another selling point of this sweater, particularly one cut in a classic crewneck style with old-school elbow patches — it works at the office (seriously, your co-workers might dig the elbow patches) and it works at home or on a winter weekend retreat. When you’re shelling out more than $200 for a sweater, it pays to have one you can wear often. That’s just part of the reasoning behind buying the Taylor Stitch Cashmere Elbow Patch Sweater.It’s also helpful that the TS team makes gear that everyone from your father to your grandfather to your brother can appreciate — these are pieces that don’t demand attention, yet still manage to stand out quietly. And since it’s the season of both holiday parties and holiday gifting, I’d urge you to consider splurging on the Taylor Stitch Cashmere Elbow Patch Sweater for yourself or someone else. We haven’t even covered the real Donegal flecks — that’s a unique a fabric as any out there. Are you convinced yet?
