The Sweaters Guide

In such cold weather, gray and rainy it is essential to protect when one leaves home. And this is where the pull, the efficient ally coat .

However, are you really an expert on the sweater?

Do you know, for example, there are dozens of different stitches and collar (round neck, V neck, trucker, shawl collar …), they are made from the most diverse materials (Alpaca, Mohair, Jersey, Kashmir …) or some unsuspected come from animals like worms for silk.

And last but not least, do you choose the right sweater, both warm and stylish?

Mr. Style invites you this week to travel to the heart of the fiber and mesh to calmly deal with the coming winter!

Definition of Pull

Called pull all knitted garment, unlike conventional clothing (t-shirt, shirt, jacket …) who themselves are woven.

Pull of History

The term pull is recent, previously was called or knit sweater (expression still used in Quebec).

It is derived from the phrase “Pull over,” which literally means “take over” in reference to how we put on a sweater.

The origin of the pull back further in time, soon found in ancient Egypt but in Britain the 18th century was born the sweater. The phrase comes from a funny anecdote from the time when the Breton sailors marketed with England garlic and onion stocks. They were easily recognizable knitted dress.They were nicknamed “the garlic merchants.” Thus their habit was later nicknamed “sweater” contraction “merchant” and “garlic”.

The sweater’s primary function is to protect the body from the cold in the insulation due to the thermal properties of wool fibers. It’s called the functional aspect of an object (ex: bring warmth), essential quality for any garment but to which must be added the aesthetic character (eg. To the physical value).

One does not go without the other, a sweater can be warm, insulating, soft and everything you want but if it is deformed, it will give its owner a look of old gentleman neglected. Ditto if the sweater is pretty well cut but is actually a little hot plastic, the holder will be chilled to the bone at each exit.

That’s why every pull of this selection will be under scrutiny of these essential criteria

1) Cup

2) Color

3) Comfort

4) Heat

The perfect sweater is one that presents the best compromise between these notions.

Which we will add a fifth Equally important, the context.

Whenever we are in search of a new garment should always analyze how (s) location (s) you will use it and ask the following questions:

  • How will I wear this sweater, with what clothes, what colors, what accessories?
  • He can pull it be worn to work and partner with a shirt?
  • Is it hot enough for this time of year?

These questions are not useless. They allow you to buy with the retreat necessary items that you really need and do not regret those purchases thereafter.

How to wear?

The mesh is an airy and elastic material. Do not wait precision at the cut to equal a jacket. If, in the absolute, the seam at the shoulders must stop on the small bone at the top of the shoulder called accromion in reality most jumpers float a bit and tend to develop after several ports . This is not serious and it is also proof that a garment lives with his owner.

Each Man’s Sweater

Different sweaters models do not go to all the gentlemen. Everyone has physical features of its own and cuts that suit him. Some forms of passes go to certain types of necks and physical.

For example, round neck sweaters chunky knit will go to more tall and thin men since they add breadth and masculinity. While the same sweater will have an effect against-productive men on broad shoulders and will accentuate their already impressive stature and pack them.

Different Sweaters

The sweater is generally defined by its neck, more precisely by the shape of its neck.

There is a wide variety of stitches (Aran sweater, Norwegian, cardigan …). To keep this concise and practical article, we will focus on the main knitwear on the French market.

In sum timeless basic that have proven themselves and deserve a place in your wardrobe.

The round neck sweater

The round neck sweater is the most relaxed of male cardigans. He admits many varieties of models (marine sweater, Ireland, Norway) and colors.

As explained in the selection of winter clothing, it would have first of all models with plain colors and boilerplate (navy blue, gray, brown). And for those who have the appropriate physical, worked more models with textures or patterns.

How to wear?

The round neck sweater works with more informal attire based on t-shirts and casual footwear like sneakers. It also deals with a shirt but more difficult than with a V-neck or cardigan, specially provided for this purpose. And that shirt combination, pull ras-neck-collar work, it is better to choose a more informal soft-shirt collar.

Example: a shirt collar to the US (called “button-down” by connoisseurs).

Which morphologies ?

Virtually everyone for united and lightweight models. Thick copies, patterned or twists, should be avoided for physical burly and round.

The V-neck sweater

The V-neck sweater is versatile sweater par excellence. Portable with dressy or casual wear, the clothing that many men wear every day but unfortunately very badly.

How to wear ?

The V-neck sweater is specifically intended to be associated with a shirt but be careful to choose the shirt adapted to the neck sweater. The collar of the shirt should not exceed ungracefully and able to fit in the neck sweater. This is where the rub because many men do not know wearing a shirt with a sweater. The result is catastrophic.

  • On the other hand, it is quite possible to wear it with a simple t-shirt.
  • We will avoid the tonal in pull-shirt combination to respect the rule of contrasts and avoid pajamas effect
