A men’s sweater is a multifunctional garment. Wear it over a T-shirt or a dress shirt, a sturdy outer garment, or a backup for a chilly spring day or a late summer night. Sweaters for men are available in cotton, lambswool, and Merino wool. In the past, sweaters were hand-knit and made of wool.

Lambswool is a textile fiber that comes from sheep and other animals. Lambswool holds air so that the fabric can retain heat. Wool has a high thermal resistance and is a delicate fabric. When a sweater is worn over a shirt or a t-shirt, You shouldn’t wash it that much. When necessary, you can wash the sweater but read the care label to know how to wash it. Hand wash is preferred, also when the care label doesn’t recommend it. It is because the fabric can quickly shrink. Lambswool is naturally high elastic, which means that the material will easily return to its original shape. Wool has a delicate touch and is a soft fabric. We sell different brands apart from our private label, making sweaters with a crew-neck or a v- neck. For example, William Lockie and Barbour are well-known brands.
The Merino Sheep is one of the breeds of sheep that is very economical. The Merino sheep has the finest and softest wool of any sheep. It is used for different things such as curtains and clothes. It is very comfortable because the fabric does not itch. Like all wool types, it isolates very nicely. It is thinner than lambswool, and in sweaters, it makes you look slimmer. Perfect to wear on top of a shirt to create a smart casual look. Formal but warm on cold days. Suitable offers you different sweaters in a lot of different colors, with a crew-neck or v-neck. Other brands that we sell and make fair sweaters made out of Merino wool are Profuomo and Olymp.
Cotton is a fabric that is made out of the cotton plant. The fiber is flexed into threads and becomes a soft and breathable fabric. Perfect to wear and easy to wash. This fabric is stronger and resists different programs in the washing machine without shrinking. Because of the strength of cotton, they are even made with a short zipper on the chest. Or with buttons, so the sweater adjusts better around the neck. Cotton feels a bit thicker than Merino, and that’s why you can also wear it with just a t-shirt underneath it. More brands make cotton sweaters such as Superdry, Suitable, Vanguard, Tommy Hilfiger, Gant, and many more.
Fitting of brands
The fitting of a sweater depends on the fabric and the brand. We usually see that Italian or Spanish brands have a small or slimmer fitting. But apart from that, the material Merino Wool is elastic and adjusts better to the body. The slimmest and skinniest fittings are the following brands at Suitable: Cast Iron, Profuomo, Superdry, and Scotch and Soda. European brands that we sell at Suitable that have a normal to slim fit are the following brands: Suitable, No -excess, NZA, Dstrezzed, Vanguard. Other brands with a Normal to Regular fit: Gant, Barbour, Casa Moda, Marc’ O Polo, and William Lockie. We do want you to know that this is just an indication. In every season and with every brand, there can be a difference.
A pullover is a sweater that you can wear over a formal shirt. We recommend styling this sweater in a cotton or wool fabric. You can choose the round neck or v- neck, whatever suits you best and make you feel comfortable. Use primary colors when you need your outfit to be smart casual, or semi-formal. Make sure that the length of the pullover ends over the top of your jeans or trousers. For a casual occasion, you can easily combine a formal shirt with a more outspoken color. Or you could wear a sportive sweater with a more prominent logo, or a hoodie.
Crew-Neck and V- Neck
The choice between a crew-neck and a v-neck is up to you. Some say they prefer a v-neck because of its space on the neck and collar. They combine it with a formal shirt underneath it, and they open up the first couple of buttons. Others prefer to wear a crew-neck because the shirt’s collar will keep its shape and won’t move. Most men will unbutton the first button of the shirt.
