Sweatshirts For Men
Men's sweatshirts are a must have for any guy who is into their fashion. A lot of people have the misconception that sweatshirts are only good for hanging around the house in, when in fact they are great, versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down. Obviously, there is a time and a place of where you should and shouldn't wear a sweatshirt, but they suit a lot more styles than you may first assume. This guide will take you through our favourite picks and best sweatshirts, as well as letting you know how to style them.
North Face Sweatshirts
A North Face sweatshirt usually consists of a clean and minimal design that you can wear casually. Due to their block black, grey and white colourings, we suggest you continue the colour palette and pair it with some black jeans and white trainers. This look is perfect for a Saturday day out or a pub catch-up with the boys.
Nudie Jeans Co Sweatshirts
If you're after something a little more basic, no logos and a staple colour a Nudie Jeans sweatshirt is the one for you. Nudie Jeans have made our top picks because of the unusual garment construction. This cotton sweatshirt has an asymmetric design to add a little 'edge' to your look.
Armor Lux Sweaters
We love the material of the Armor Lux sweatshirts, most of them are made of French terry cotton which gives it a cosy towelling feel. This French brand incorporates true French style with the horizontal, navy Breton stripes. This piece is a nice step up from an ordinary cotton shirt, as we think the texture of a piece is just as important as the look of it.
This is one for the artsy, graphic lovers and those of you that like a bit of extra detail. Soulland's collection of sweatshirts are deconstructed and asymmetric in design. Our favourite sweatshirt design is half screen printed and half graphic designed, giving the sweatshirt a huge splash of colour that contrasts the white material. Another interesting design detail is the difference in the sleeves. One sleeve is longer than the other, and one has a raw hem where the other is cuffed.
Levi's Original Sweatshirts
We love Levi's original and simply designed sweatshirts as they're fairly toned down, meaning you're able to dress it up. Sweatshirts don't just have to be reserved for casual wear - you can dress it up or go for that smart casual look. Pair the crew sweatshirt with a pair of slim fit trousers or jeans and some fresh white trainers. Black is a staple colour, so having a few crew neck sweatshirts for men in this colour will allow you to layer up ready for the colder months.
Here is another one of our favourites. This retro designed brand have sweatshirts and crew neck jumpers with soft towelling textures and printed logos. Although this is a similar texture to the Amor Lux sweatshirts, FILA pieces are minimal in their design. Fila have a selection of bright coloured sweatshirts but an all-white design can make the FILA logo pop, especially as their standout, classic colours consist of navy, red and white. This 90s brand is back in, so make sure you don't miss out on the trend.
The Plain Coloured Sweatshirt
Ok, so I guess we're cheating a little bit here, but how are we supposed to pick the one best colour? Plain coloured sweatshirts are a great piece for brightening up your outfit with minimal effort. Some sweatshirts are brighter and bolder in colour than others, so make sure you feel confident in the colour you go for. If you wear any garment of colour, be mindful of how you style the rest of your look - try not to clash any of the colours. To play safe, style the rest of your outfit in whites, greys and blacks. The Idle Man's own range have a selection of colours that are sure to suit any wardrobe preference.
Carharrt WIP Sweatshirts
Carhartt WIP collection of sweatshirts are the perfect choice for those channelling their inner American-vibes. Carharrt WIP was initially created to give Europe a taste of the 'All-American-Concept' by designing distinctly American style products. Recognised for their ethos and loved for their quality, Carhartt has been a steady riser in the menswear market for a while now. Their sweatshirts are therefore perfect representations of the brand, and they're pretty comfy, too.
Maison Labiche Sweatshirts
Maison Labiche has primarily focused on embroidery, giving us tongue and cheek minimal designs such as the 'Notorious' and 'high five' wording on their sweatshirts. Other designers of theirs include the words 'Rebel Rebel' and '99 Problems'. This kind of sweatshirt is ideal for a simple, understated look - great for a man who likes easy fashion. Pair this sweatshirt with some dark chinos and a monochrome watch to make it a little more formal.
