Looking for the best fall sweaters for guys? You’ve come to the right place.

Trust us when we say, the team’s collective dream is to digital-window shop for autumn layers for you guys all day (while listening to Taylor Swift’s Folklore, naturally).

That’s why this list is, well, sort of long. We didn’t hold back. There’s all kinds of styles of sweaters, from cardigans and sweater jackets to crewnecks and turtleneck sweaters.

But don’t be intimidated! Feel free to stop scrolling as soon as you see the one. You know, that fall sweater that makes you actually look forward to colder temperatures and cozying up indoors.

So, grab your light jackets and start making room for more layers to your autumn looks.

Check out the (updated!) 20 best fall sweaters for guys:

1. Billy Reid, $198

Billy Reid Marled Crewneck Sweater

Wear it well: When it comes to men’s sweaters with this much texture, let a more streamlined, simple jacket anchor your outfit. You don’t want to have too much going on.

2. The Tie Bar, $65

Tie Bar Merino Wool Striped Camel Sweater Polo

Wear it well: Look, sometimes you just have to treat yourself to a trendy-yet-somehow-also-a-throwback style you’re not sure you can pull off and tell yourself you’re worth it.

This front-button, collared polo knit number from The Tie Bar definitely fits the bill.

3. Buck Mason, $228

Buck Mason California Cashmere turtleneck in navy

Wear it well: “Is it time I buy a turtleneck?” is an outdated question. The answer is, and has been, yes, for quite some time now.

This dark navy style from Buck Mason in superfine cashmere should get you over the hump nicely.

Just treat it like the neutral it is and wear it with…pretty much everything.

4. Gap, $128

Gap Recycled Crewneck Sweater

Wear it well: This cheery pink sweater hoodie would look so good on your next Zoom call.

And it’s machine washable! Gotta love that.

5. J.Crew, $98

J.Crew rollneck sweater in heather moss

Wear it well: Yes. Another. Turtleneck.

Can’t stop, won’t stop.

This rollneck style has a “Pacey from Dawson’s Creek” vibe, which is very on trend for fall 2023, if you didn’t know.

Once the temperature dips a little lower, top it with a parka for an easily elegant winter look.

6. L.L. Bean, $119

l.l. bean fisherman sweater

Wear it well: You should know by now how we feel about a fisherman’s sweater, so let’s just leave it at that before it gets uncomfortable for all of us, shall we? Wear yours under a leather jacket for extra levels of cool.

Simple, stylish, and you’re out the door.

7. Abercrombie & Fitch, $90

Abercrombie Sweater Shirt Jacket in black

Wear it well: The sweater jacket is back in a big way this fall.

Sport yours now over a t-shirt with carpentercore wide-leg pants, and later under a heavier coat.

8. Wills, $98

wills speckled merino sweater

Wear it well: There’s a time and a place for easy-breezy pullovers. And that time is early September all the way through…oh, March?

So don’t be surprised if you find yourself reaching for this lightweight merino wool crewneck sweater in speckled grey over and over again this season.

9. Schott NYC, $185

schott nyc cardigan

Wear it well: In this patterned cardigan, you’ll look uber-comfortable, but not in a sloppy way. Perfect for fall outdoor (and heck, indoor!) adventures.

10. Ayr, $245

Ayr The Yachty sweater

Wear it well: For some color beyond what you’ll find on fall foliage, this wool cotton sweater will do the trick.

11. Naadam, $75

Naadam 75 cashmere sweater

Wear it well: Naadam updated their $75 cashmere sweater with an expanded range of colors, meaning more options for your fall wardrobe.

The result is ::chef’s kiss:: good.

12. Corridor, $345

corridor pink sweater

Wear it well: A stylist on our team recently recommended this cool mohair sweater for a shopping client, and we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves!

Yes, it’s a little pricy, but super stylish, and you’ll feel great every time you pull it on. Wear it casually with jeans or twill pants, or dress it up under a sturdy, dark-colored suit.

And sure, not every guy can pull off – or would want to pull off! – a sweater with all the colors of a Lisa Frank backpack. But if you think you can, wouldn’t this look so great with dark rinse denim and a leather jacket?

Mm hmm, I thought so…

13. Express, $98

Express grey cardigan

Wear it well: I love this affordable cardigan from Express. It looks so collegiate, and you can wear it so many ways.

Dress it down with ripped jeans and Converse for a “bad boy on break from boarding school” vibe, or under a suit jacket for a warm office outfit.

14. Faherty, $178

Faherty Legend™ Sweater Shirt in Bozeman plaid

Wear it well: We’re not going to argue over whether or not this “sweater shirt” from Faherty belongs in a fall roundup of the most stylish, coziest sweaters for guys to wear this season.

Because who cares? You would look great—and feel oh-so-comfy—wearing it. And really, isn’t that really what matters?

15. Mr Porter, $225

MR P. Cashmere Polo Shirt in navy

Wear it well: Mr Porter’s “Mr P” line continues to kill it.

This slim-fit, merino wool polo sweater could be the foundation of so many outfits this year. Wear it with tailored pants like the model above (sneakers or not is up to you!), or to date night with your crispest pair of jeans.

Part of the line’s permanent collection (so you know it’s popular), this long-sleeved polo is a slightly smarter alternative to your standard crewneck. It’s knitted from ultra-soft cashmere and has a neat collar, two-button placket and ribbed trims.

Oh, and the trim silhouette is totally ideal for layering, so don’t be afraid to throw it under a blazer or any of your favorite fall jackets.

16. Todd Snyder, $228


Wear it well: Team SG’s Gabi picked this striped sweater as her favorite item for guys this month.

It also comes in six other fall-appropriate hues, so don’t be afraid to stock up!

17. Mango, $90

Mango turtleneck

Wear it Well: Zero notes on this picture-perfect creamy turtleneck sweater from Mango.

Wear it exactly like the model above. Or, dress it up under a suit for holiday parties. Wear it with jeans on the weekend. The world is your turtleneck-outfitted oyster!

18. Bonobos, $129

Bonobos Midweight Stripe Stitch Crew Neck Sweater

Wear it well: Can’t you just see yourself wearing this medium weight sweater to work with dress pants? On a laid-back date, with jeans and your favorite sneakers? On the weekend around a fire, layered under a broken-in denim jacket? I could go on…

19. Everlane, $128

everlane merino hoodie

Wear it well: Looking for an affordable fall sweater that looks totally luxe, and offers stellar comfort and warmth? Well, you’ve found it in this Everlane hoodie in felted merino wool.

But a warning: yes, it’s a hoodie, but it’s also dry clean only so be sure to care for it properly if you want it to last!

20. Taylor Stitch, $228

Taylor Stitch Fisherman Sweater in Camel

Wear it well: Our team recently recommended this merino wool fisherman sweater for a shopping client, and we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves!

It’s stylish, has a chef’s kiss perfect fit, and rings up under $240. Bottom line? It’s a great quality sweater you’ll have forever.
