How to wear a men’s cardigan
A men’s cardigan is a piece of clothing that can be combined with almost anything in your wardrobe. While the original cardigan has always had a button-up front, many modern variations instead feature a zipper. This makes the men’s cardigan with zipper much more versatile and less old fashioned. Wear a solid-colored cardigan with a button-down shirt for a classic look, or combine a sporty cardigan with a T-Shirt for a casual athletic appearance. Cardigans for men are perfect for chilly fall and winter days. They provide extra warmth and compliment any outfit, whether you choose a casual, soft jersey cardigan, a warm knit, or a chunky woolen cardigan. Make a well-groomed appearance with a classic buttoned cardigan, which can be worn both in your spare time or during office hours. A great example of this is our collection of Profuomo cardigans, made from Merino wool. Are you the sporty type? Then go for a loose-fitting athletic model from one of our many casual brands, such as Björn Borg or Napapijri. Don’t worry about sizes at Suitable because our assortment of cardigans ranges from size XS up to 5XL. Get inspired by the seasonal collections of our finest brands and take a look at the complete assortment of men’s cardigans online.
The versatility of the men’s shirt jacket
Also known as a shirt jacket, the overshirt combines the look of a button-up shirt with the properties of a lightweight jacket.
