First day of the November of Dressing Nicely. “Worked” from home today, so I kept things pretty casual. And, yes, the “old man” sweater is back. I love this thing.
Is a chunky knit sweater “essential”? For me, it is. I wore this quite often last fall and winter and intend to do likewise this season. You don’t need a closet full of them — in fact, you probably only need one quality one. There’s not much it doesn’t go with — chinos, jeans, flannel trousers — and can be used as an outer layer in the warmer fall days and a thicker layer in the winter under a parka.
As for which one to get, that’s going to depend on your budget. This particular one is from Lands’ End Canvas last fall that I got for around $60 (I think) on sale. It’s probably tougher to find one at that price, but keep any eye out for sales and whatnot during the holiday season.
