The Thursday Buy: The Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck is the Coziest Sweater for Casual Holiday Style

From point A to point B (or rather, from the top of your wardrobe to the bottom), Mack Weldon has a knack for making some of the best men’s style essentials for a wide variety of situations (any style situation you can dream up, in fact). And for the next few weeks, I’d imagine your style scenarios will certainly involve quite the mix of holiday gatherings, laidback days at home and perhaps some time spent hustling at the office. So, what are you going to wear for each of those vastly different scenarios? At least on your top half, the answer should prove relatively simple: The Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck delivers the efficient, effective, subtle but reliable style (and winter warmth!) that you need right now. It’s both one of the best sweatshirts for men and yet so much more than an average crewneck sweatshirt in terms of fit, fabric and feel. If that sounds like it checks all the proper boxes for you, you’re in luck: Keep reading, my friends.

Mack Weldon, of course, already makes some of the most comfortable pants to wear back to the office, and they’ve gone a step further in recent months with one of the best men’s travel jackets. Tie it all together, then, with a sweatshirt you can wear just about anywhere, and then be thankful you’ve got it handy on chilly days, for welcoming winter evenings and a bit of everything in between. Here’s where the Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck really sets itself apart from the pack. It’s got all of the very same trappings (and then some) as the rest of the Mack Weldon Ace Collection, yet with even more cleaned-up, classic and go-anywhere style points.

The sweatshirt itself uses soft micro-brushed French terry for an incredibly smooth feel and finish — the Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck, to put it lightly, doesn’t pull any punches in terms of high-quality fabrication. It retails for the highly agreeable price of $78, a downright bargain when you consider that you can wear this surprisingly stylish crew neck sweatshirt with everything from tailored Mack Weldon sweatpants to your favorite pair of jeans or even tan chinos (especially the Total Eclipse color shown above). The Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck goes well layered up atop a white Oxford shirt at the office or over a chambray shirt — at the office or picking up a growler of your favorite beer pre-party.

And if you simply feel like throwing on the Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck to wear with sweatshorts on a laidback day at home, then you’ve got a sweatshirt that rise to the (comparatively laidback) occasion. When you want to class things up just a bit, the Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck wears nicely underneath, say, a tan herringbone or unstructured charcoal wool blazer with dark jeans for a high-low style mash-up. With three versatile color options up for grabs, the versatility of the Mack Weldon Ace Crew Neck can go as far as you want it to go right now. Scoop one up now as the holiday season picks up in earnest.
