Get more wear out of this winter wardrobe staple
If there’s one thing we’d guess that every one of you well-dressed guys already has in your wardrobe, it’s a navy crewneck sweater. Why? Because 1) it’s easy. Small/Medium/Large and you’re good to go. And 2) it goes with everything – jeans, trousers, chinos, a blazer, a jean jacket, a shirt and tie, etc. Chances are, you even received a new one at the holidays, and for good reason. It’s the sweater that keeps on giving.
