Learn More About Men's Sweaters
When it’s sweater weather, the shops on Etsy have a wide range of styles to choose from, from slim, fitted sweaters to oversized chunky knits. Here are some of the most popular types of sweaters for men.
V-neck sweater: A v-neck sweater is a classic style named for its angled neckline. Wear a slim fit v-neck sweater over a shirt and tie for a sharp office look.
Crew-neck sweater: These classic sweaters have rounded necklines. They look great over button-down shirts or on their own over a crew-neck T-shirt.
Pullover: Any sweater you pull over your head (as opposed to zip or button closed) is considered a pullover sweater.
Cashmere sweater: Made of super soft wool from a specific breed of goat, cashmere sweaters come in a variety of colors and styles, including cardigans, turtlenecks, and cashmere v-neck sweaters.
Cable-knit sweater: This classic chunky sweater is knitted with crossing layers that resemble a rope or cable. A cable knit sweater is definitely the go-to knit if you're looking for warmth, comfort, and a cozy style.
Cardigan: These sweaters that close with buttons or zippers are perfect for layering. Choose a slim-fitting cardigan, with its buttons up front, to show off a classy shirt and tie. Or pair a stylish and comfortable shawl collar cardigan with a pair of jeans and boots for a cozy look.
Cotton sweater: A great choice for spring or summer, a cotton sweater is cool and breathable.
Vintage sweater: From playful ‘80s polo sweaters to oversized multicolored ‘90s knits like zig zag sweaters to vintage men's cardigans with leather elbow pads, Etsy shops sell a wide variety of vintage men’s sweaters.
How you want your sweater to fit is really up to personal preference.
Looking for that fitted look? When dressing up, slim-fitting, body-hugging sweaters make you look put-together. You’ll want the hem of your sweater to fall just below your belt line. The sleeves should hit the base of your thumb, and the fit will be close to your torso.
Prefer a more casual, relaxed fit? A chunky cable knit pullover doesn't need to fit closely against your torso. And many vintage styles have a looser fit with oversized sleeves.
