We can take adventage of all the reductions and discounts that companies are offering us. Whether it’s through newletter, free shipping offer or just simple sale.

What makes sweater worth the price?

Materials that were used during the production process

If you've ever looked for a high quality sweater, first thing that you've probably noticed is a difference in prices within the same looking products. Everything starts at the beginning of the production process when we need to decide which ingredients we're going to use in order to make the final product. In our opinion, sweater that is definitely worth the splurge should be constructed from the natural materials. All types of wool are something that you're looking for. Before your purchase check the label for the list of the ingredients and If some of those wool yarns such as: cashmere, merino wool, lambswool, 100% wool are listed it means that you're going to enjoy your sweater for a long time.

Not feature Brand logos

Brand logos are unnecassary in our wardrobe. They're not adding anything to your outfit and only making them harder to create. Not only our sweaters are going to look heavy due to the way they were knitted but also we're layering it with more details - in this case brand logos. Simplicity is a key to mens fashion!

Properly fitted

It's always a nightmare to find perfectly fitted sweater and we often don't want spend a lot of time trying more items. At this point it is very likely that most of the men's audience are able to relate to this problem. We are going to explore this issue even further in the following part of this article.

Shouldn't Pill Excesively

Our sweaters should look impeccable - that's what we paid for, isn't it? Unfortunately sometimes things are not performing as well as we want them to. Pilling is one of those issues. It's usually caused by cheap material used in the producta or we're simply not following the care instructions provided on the label.

How to properly fit your sweater?


Sleeves are really important part of men’s sweaters and cardigans. Their lenght should ends at the base of your thumb. If you want your long sleeve shirt to peak through and at the same time  keep a good taste, you can choose a sweater with sleeves that ends 1/2″ before the base of your thumbs. This way you’ll be able to create this fashionable trick but in a proper way.
