The Thursday Buy: Bundle up for Early Spring With One of the Best Men’s Sweaters From Aether Apparel

Aether Apparel Jersey Long-Sleeve Crew

Your new favorite sweater for spring from Aether Apparel.

If you thought it was high time you stowed away your rotation of men’s sweaters, I’d urge you to reconsider (if only briefly). In today’s Thursday Buy, after all, we’ve got the perfect piece to bridge the gap between winter and spring, and it just so happens to be the phenomenal Aether Apparel Jersey Long-Sleeve Crew. It’s a highly refined, functional and versatile layering essential, and it’s also one of the best sweaters for men I’ve seen in some time. It’s going to be the last sweater you buy for a while, too (it’s priced at $165 at Aether Apparel), but the brand gets plenty right when it comes to crafting the best menswear essentials for plenty of seasonal style.

The Aether Apparel Jersey Long-Sleeve Crew draws its heritage and quality from the very roots of the Aether Apparel brand, as it were. Aether Apparel was born on the West Coast in 2009, founded by two city dwellers looking for functional, utilitarian-yet-stylish gear to help them get around (and eventually, out of) the city. That city? Aether Apparel was founded in L.A., to be exact — the brand’s headquarters to this day. As they say, Aether is focused on durable, premium gear for “urban-dwelling, design-focused, well-traveled men and women,” but when it comes to one of the best men’s sweaters — to name but one example — this is a brand for everyone.

Aether Apparel men's gear

Talk about one of the coolest men’s sweaters, complete with some functional detailing.

It’s that critical blend of technical, premium fabrics that gives pieces like the Aether Apparel Jersey Long-Sleeve Crew that critical versatility, the chance to go from the city to the trail (the hills above Los Angeles, perhaps?) and back. In this case, one of the best sweaters for men starts out with the proper fabric, a 100 percent cotton-jersey knit that should prove easy to layer atop your favorite T-shirt, a technical dress shirt or a classic Oxford shirt in equal measure. This is an on-the-go sweater (available in neutral colors like Stoker Red and Darkest Spruce Green) that you can throw on easily underneath everything from a waxed trucker jacket to a well-worn denim jacket, too.

How’s that for spring style that doesn’t miss a beat? The front chest pocket, with notched corner detailing (a signature from the brand), is distinctive and makes this stylish men’s sweater easier to wear all on its own, too. The split hem detailing is also a unique touch that helps the Aether Apparel Jersey Long-Sleeve Crew stand out quietly. Whether you make this a go-to casual weekend sweater for days at home or you choose to layer it up on a day hike, the Aether Apparel Jersey Long-Sleeve Crew is your new favorite sweater for spring — I can nearly guarantee it.
