Best men's cardigan for winter

It’s sometimes nice to treat yourself to a luxe upgrade to a style classic — a better, more improved version of a trusty staple you’ve had in your closet for years, like one of the best men’s sweaters. And this season, that upgrade is the Buck Mason Herdsman Shawl Cardigan, as high-quality, warm and stylish a cardigan as you’re apt to find on the market.

Of course, you ideally know the brand from making timeless seasonal picks like one of the best corduroy shirts, or everyday carry essentials like the best leather wallet for men, but this soft-yet-rugged sweater takes things a step further in terms of quality, and that’s probably an understatement. The Buck Mason Herdsman Shawl Cardigan looks like something a style icon like Hemingway or McQueen might have worn, for starters. and it only gets better from there. Note the use of merino wool and cashmere to craft a stylish men’s sweater that’s breathable, warm and anti-microbial.

Crucially, the Buck Mason Herdsman Shawl Cardigan is also built the right way beyond just that luxe, upgraded fabric — the sweater features a thick ribbed vertical knit for maximum warmth and a touch of visual interest, too. Buck Mason is certainly right to call your new favorite winter sweater a “timeless cold weather staple,” because the Buck Mason Herdsman Shawl Cardigan checks all the right boxes when it comes to the best men’s winter sweaters (fabric very much included).
