Alternative to the round neck sweater, the sweater v collar wants to be more elegant or sensual while remaining easy and pleasant to wear basic. Well chosen, it flatters your figure and gives character to your outfit. It explains why and how
No it is not cheesy, no it is not just driven by our friend the average American, the v neck sweater has again become one of the essential basics of the male wardrobe . Worked better with more accurate cuts, closer to the body, and the finest materials, the collar will pull everything to seduce the wearer and those (or those) who watch.
What to wear my sweater V-neck?
You have three options:
- Wear it with a shirt
- With a tee
- Or with nothing (or rather to the skin).
The first association is the most complex in the sense that you should already know the type of shirt, type of collar that best suits your body type. However, two important points: the pull of the neck must be deep enough and get below the 2nd or 3rd button of the shirt. And if you have fair skin, avoid too strong contrast (eg black sweater and white shirt).
The association with a tee shirt, useful in case the material tends to pull or scrape your skin gets irritated easily. Exit the round neck shirt (dress made in usa) and not … this is not the place to demonstrate that you know play with colors (black / white, red / black, pink / neon green…). Rely instead on the shirt collar v which wants very discreet under the sweater. Ideally it should not be, but if it exceeds a few centimeters from the neck sweater, choose the tone on tone (blue / navy blue) or light contrast (blue / gray anthracite).
For a port to the skin, it is rather the side of the material that we need to do a more rigorous selection. Merino wool if you go to a high end pull, otherwise. Cashmere More material is soft, more comfort will be great .Incidentally, if you’re the kind very hairy in the torso, the mower move is essential, forest point must exceed the pass.
What cut for any morphology?
The choice of male cardigans is basically the same as any pull. Although the V neck sweater wants to be more fitted, it is also what gives it its charm, do not choose too tight either, and conversely not too loose. To choose a sweater to your waist, repérez- you breaking shoulders, sewing sleeves must be at the same place, not lower, not higher.
The more you are, the more you can afford a deep collar. Attention too deep, in addition to vulgar, accentuate your thinness if you are. In all cases, banish the little pronounced v-collar workers, they have no aesthetic interest and empties this type of pull its appeal (elegance, sensuality, …), and complicate the overlay with a shirt.
Material: cotton, merino wool, cashmere?
Generally v neck sweaters are the cheapest cotton. Often also synthetic materials (acrylic, etc.), but that’s to be banned. So let us stop to cotton.It’s not the most pleasant and beautiful material there is, but if price is your first criterion, then choose 100% cotton.
Merino is probably the best understood with a more affordable price than cashmere and more interesting material than cotton. Merino wool has the distinction of being sweet (if you select / good brands), and not to retain sweat and smells that go with it, nor wrinkle. The washing is however more delicate than cotton (cold and no spin ideally and dry flat).
Cashmere finally, and evidently, prices soar. Knowing that the quality is not always related to the price, you should be very picky and connoisseur not you end up with a sweater v neck boulochant bought cheap and after a few ports. Yes, because all the cashmeres are not equal. At the same price, merino wool is less risky to buy with identical or superior quality.
Choose what colors, plain or patterned?
Here there are no rules, it all depends on your outfit and your personality. For simple and classic outfits, barter eternal and often very sad black sweater against a blue sweater navy / dark blue, dark gray or even burgundy . If you clear skin, aspirin trend in winter, these simple but bright colors will make you good.
Plain or patterned? Little risk of error in the first case. In the second,choose the patterns with sober, discreet, original but not too much .Unbranded displayed in large or small, unless you have nothing else to go play football.
And now, where to buy, what brand?
To share our experience, we list some brands whose quality / price ratio is the most interesting. Point Celio or Zara, and opposite, no Hugo Boss.
Let’s start with the entry. Monoprix has a good reputation (check in time). The brand offers sweaters v-neck cotton cashmere through merino wool. Great choice of colors often with a beautiful hue. If the store does not exist in your area, you can order them via e-shop.
Armor Lux, Breton brand whose sweaters are not quite Breton but has the advantage of offering V-neck sweaters in a wide color palette. The cuts are not necessarily suitable for large / small. Attention some sweaters are 50% acrylic, opt for 100% merino, a tad more expensive. The touch, it’s still rough, so compulsory shirt or T-shirt under the sweater.
It goes upmarket with brands House Standards and Six & Sept. Two confidential brands that are the epitome of a very good quality / price ratio. (It is the interest of confidential brands not to pass a budget pub insolent in the price of the garment). If the choice of colors is limited to the first, the quality is top with pure cashmere. The second, six and seven, offers more original colors while remaining sober. Two signs to follow and try.
Melinda Gloss, brand choice for those seeking close upscale clothing at a good price, although higher than the aforementioned brands.Renowned for the quality and originality of his clothes, Melinda Gloss is a safe bet, for discerning gentlemen …
Finally in the high-end, with unbridled price (and paid) we Kitsuné andMaison Martin Margiela. The first probably offers the very best in quality, and the second is doing more to originality (true creative work) there too with a quality appointment. Two brands whose clothing often leave dreamers.
