8 Cozy, Stylish Cardigans For Guys

The sweater for your sensitive side

By Taylor Davies | Last Updated: Oct 22 2018

Guys, I’m here to tell you something important about your fall and winter wardrobes, so listen up. When you want to dress up your jeans-and-whatever outfit, the cardigan is your best friend.

It’s the lazy man’s favorite sweater, and with good reason! You don’t even have to pull it over your head. Heck, you don’t even need to button it if you don’t want to. And as we move into winter (it’s close, guys!), you can pair a heavy-gauge cardigan with a light coat, and skip the heavy-duty jacket altogether. At least for a little while longer, anyway…

Below, eight cardigans for guys we’re loving at SG HQ right now:

1. Abercrombie & Fitch, $98

SG Says: Anyone wearing this cozy A&F cardigan automatically looks like a tall drink of hot spiced apple cider, and I am here for it.

2. RRL, $695

SG Says: Fair warning, some of these cardigans are going to get pretty pricey. But just take a look at this RRL number above. Do you think that’s going out of style anytime soon? No way. That’s a “your kids will eventually steal it from you someday” keeper.

3. American Eagle Outfitters, $90

SG Says: Textured, slightly colorful but not so much that you’re scared off, will look great on your gf? This cardigan’s got it all.

4. Thom Browne, $950

SG Says: Yes, it’s expensive. No denying that. But this Thom Browne sweater with its iconic tricolor grosgrain placket is like the Burberry trench, or the best song off Taylor Swift’s 1989 (yep, I’ve been listening to it again), it’ll never go out of style.

5. Howlin’, $240

SG Says: To add a pop of color, pair this cozy grey cardigan with a burnished red tee underneath, or dress it up with chinos or trousers in a “leaves falling off the trees” hue.

> Have you thought about…trying a turtleneck

6. Mollusk, $170

SG Says: The heavier the knit, the more rugged you’ll look. As in, no worries about being mistaken for Mr. Rogers in this number.

7. Naadam, $225

SG Says: One of Team SG’s favorite DTC (direct-to-consumer) brands, this smoke grey number from Naadam Cashmere looks and feels as sturdy as a sport coat, for when you want to dress up a little but still feel as comfy as ever.

8. Old Navy, $70


SG Says: Another number that does all the heavy lifting for you. Whether you pair this holiday-esque style with an OCBD and chinos or a t-shirt and jeans, get ready for the “Well don’t you look stylish” compliments to start rolling right in.
