There are certain times this fall (and this holiday season) when you’re going to want to go more casual — lounging around on a weekend, catching up on afternoon football — and certain times when you’re going to want to step things up a notch. This is where one of the best men’s sweaters, a sweater you truly can wear anywhere at all, comes into play. It’s the simply named, highly effective and always stylish Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater, made with an innovative fabric blend built to go the distance. It’s here, crucially, just in time for all those instances when you need a layer you can rock with anything, and for when you need a layer that can sometimes pull double duty (as in, wear this Taylor Stitch sweater to Thanksgiving dinner, then wear it the next day with some Taylor Stitch sweats for digital Black Friday shopping).
Sound too good to be true? Well, we’re talking about Taylor Stitch after all, San Francisco-based purveyors of everything from the best fall weekend pants to one of the most rugged flannel shirts on the market. They’ve perfected the art of versatile, slightly rugged and plenty classic menswear, and this double knit sweater (more on the fabric blend in a moment) is certainly no exception to that rule.
As crazy as it might seem, the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater really is like no other sweater out there, and it comes down to the care with which the brand has built this investment-level sweater. It retails for $188, but when you consider how it’s made, you’ll understand. You see, Taylor Stitch used a blend of wool and cotton, plus rayon, poly and spandex, to deliver a classic-looking crewneck sweater that’s actually more innovative than you might expect at first glance. The interior uses viscose and polyester for a finish that’s smooth, not scratchy, meaning you could likely wear the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater atop a short-sleeve T-shirt (perhaps the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee) if absolutely needed.
And on the outside, the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater uses a ribbed collar and cuffs to keep the fit trim and clean, plus a blend of wool and cotton for warmth. You can certainly layer this shirt atop one of Taylor Stitch’s shirts for a crisp, office or holiday-party look. But because this is Taylor Stitch here, this subtly stylish sweater won’t look out of place with tailored joggers for casual weekend days aplenty. It shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the Taylor Stitch Double Knit Sweater really is one of the most solid sweaters you can snag right now, and in any color (pick from Forest, British Khaki or Charcoal). Happy layering, my friends, and thanks for reading!
