Best lightweight sweater for men.

Although we’re currently in the throes of a heat wave (at least in my neck of the woods), there’s some relief in sight — at least, there’s relief in sight as some very, very early fall menswear picks start to pop up online here and there.

And that’s where the Taylor Stitch Hugo Sweater comes into play, and it’s up for pre-funding right now for 20 percent off.

The real key here is the use of 100 percent cotton in an alternating weave — as seen above — which gives it some pleasing texture and makes it easy to retain its shape, thanks to the ribbed collar and cuffs.
