KNITWEAR: WINTER LAYERING
Friday 7 June 2019
Winter has arrived and with it crisp mornings and frosty nights. You don’t have to dress like the Michelin Man to brave the winter chill. Knits are a great way to add warmth without bulk.
You can wear a knit as your hero top layer with a tee and denim or chino. Or for a sartorial take layer a knit over your shirt and tie to add warmth to a suit for the workday commute.
Also, our lightweight knits are designed with a fine weave to be worn under our slim fit blazers so you don’t look like you’re about to expand into the incredible Hulk.
Here’s the run down.
THE TEXTURED WEAVE
Woven texture in knitwear adds interest, a touch of sophistication, without going overboard. If you’re looking for an even bolder look, pair with a patterned shirt or blazer. Our textured styles feature waffle and diamond weaves – yep, we’ve kept it clean to give you a sharp silhouette. But if you’re not ready to dive into texture our Hudson navy knit features a textured front panel that’s a subtle nod to this style.
THE MARLE EFFECT
A marle finish delivers that effortless cool look that pairs so well with denim and chinos. Speckled-look weaves in bold cobalt blue and light greys bring definitive yet oh-so-versatile layers. In particular, we love crew neck designs. They keep the lines clean to let the marle detail do the talking.
The ultimate knit-jacket hybrid that can be worn alone, over a tee or shirt or under a blazer or winter jacket. It’s pretty darn versatile. Our grey marle Thorne design has a wool-blend cable knit base with a diamond detail overlaid, yep it’s all in the details. For something a bit lighter, try our cable knit designs crafted from soft cotton fabrics.
