There’s a happy medium when it comes to getting dressed for early fall, when it’s not quite cold enough to break out a rugged parka and yet, you still need a transitional layer. Enter one of the best men’s sweaters, one made with care and sustainable style in mind from Wellen (courtesy of Huckberry, one of the best retailers for men, of course). The time is right to layer up, but not to overdo it, and that’s where the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater plugs a worthwhile gap in your fall wardrobe. It’s breezy out there, yet there’s no sign of snow, so what’s a guy to do? Answer: Add the trusty, ever-reliable and recently launched Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater to your style rotation ASAP. If you’re not familiar with Wellen, the in-house Huckberry brand (which debuted in 2019 to great effect) focuses on much-needed sustainable materials like organic cotton and more specifically hemp — both of these materials regenerate soil and can stand up to some serious wear and tear. It all comes to a head with the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater, ready for casual and rugged adventures off the grid.
This sweater is distinctive in more ways than one, starting with the more laidback and warming waffle knit construction. That gives it a more rugged appeal than a smooth merino wool sweater, for instance, so the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater is ideal for casual style situations (more on this in a second). And the use of recycled cotton (40 percent of the fabric blend used) holds up the sustainable end of the bargain, while acrylic and polyester add durability and stretch. One of the best sweaters for men checks even more boxes beyond that, though.
Naturally, the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater is your new favorite sweater for a reason, and it comes down to versatility and layering potential. Because it’s made with a cotton blend, it’s not overly stuffy or heavy, like a wool sweater (which you should also have in your wardrobe, mind you). For days when temperatures might start in the 40s or 50s (or days where the temperatures drop down into the 60s at night), a lightweight sweater like the ever-versatile Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater is the right way to go.
You can layer this sweater atop your favorite chambray shirt or an Oxford shirt, but it’s also easily wearable over, say, a merino long-sleeve T-shirt for that ideal blend of early morning warmth and style. In fact, the good folks at Huckberry practically designed this sweater to be worn at cabin getaways around the bonfire or perhaps on an early morning hike or beach stroll. You can create your own lifestyle with the rugged appeal of the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater, and that’s a great thing indeed. And because we’re talking about Huckberry here, this easily wearable sweater is priced fairly at $128 (especially given the fact that you can wear it on its own or beneath the famed Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket. Now, what’s not to love about that? This essential fall sweater checks all the right boxes, from style to sustainability, and it’s here not a moment too soon for fall. Shop accordingly, my friends.
