Gentleman’s Choice: a wool sweater that’s both festive and freakin’ cool


Published:

Keep warm and stay stylish

When you need something to keep you warm while window shopping on chilly Queen West or checking out Christmas decorations on a date in Yorkville, you better make sure it looks damn good, too.

It’s only natural to reach for a pullover, but it’s rare to find one that keeps things slick without toeing the “ironic sweater” line as well. This lambswool sweater features some incredibly wearable contrast, thanks to its deep navy and red colours which reigns in the overall pattern. Following J. Crew’s signature trim aesthetic, this one won’t bulk up your frame either. Layer a small-check shirt underneath or don some busy merino wool socks for some cool weather texture that clashes at its finest.

$148. Available at J. Crew at Eaton Centre, 218 Yonge St.
