Spring Sweaters: Easy Weekend Wear for Any Modern Gent

From casual Friday at the office to lazy Sunday catching a movie, there are more ways to dress down than just throwing on a plain ‘ole t-shirt, once the weather starts warming up. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…sometimes. Thanks to athletic gear having such a strong influence on our everyday dressing, we have a lot more options in casual sweaters than ever before. They can replace some of those sweatshirts with the same comfort, and even more style…let’s dive in.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed any of our favorite sweaters for work or an evening out, earlier in the week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

When the weekend hits, we want to be as comfortable as if we’re lying around in sweats. And you can do that while still looking stylish in this contemporary fit cotton pullover from Victorinox Swiss Army. Swiss Army is known for rugged and durable quality (didn’t we all grow up wanting a Swiss Army knife?) and this sweater has nylon shoulder trim and elbow patches that perfectly show that off. Throw it on over a t-shirt or pattern button up shirt with your favorite jeans and a cool pair of sneakers.

Every shade of blue, especially this deep shade is big for the season. J. Crew’s interpretation is spot-on in a heavy gauge Italian cotton that is indigo dyed to create a cool variance of blue shades that looks so much more expensive than it is. It is best to wash it a few times before wearing it to remove the excess indigo dye and achieve the slightly faded authentic indigo shade. Once you do though, it is the perfect weekend sweater for any pale color shorts or twill pants, and looks amazing with jeans since it plays right into the denim color variations.

Paul & Shark is a contemporary Italian company that make some of the most interesting and colorful luxury sportswear out there. In the fall, we featured a wool and leather version of this sweater that is now sold-out, and this 100% cotton version is just as awesome. For this season, the signature trim under the collar and in the elbow patches (click through the ‘shop it’ button to see them) is done in a trimmed nylon, and we love this perfect shade of red for spring days and summer nights. It is so sporty and cool with jeans, khaki’s or shorts. Wear it shopping, running errands or just lounging at home. Just wear it – the quality will stand up to the test of time, as will the style.

This contemporary fit nautically-inspired stripe sweater from Rag & Bone captures lots of good trends of the season (like the importance of stripes and white). And does it in a way that feels modern and ageless. The cotton/wool blend fiber is soft, comfortable and not too heavy for cooler spring and summer days or evening. The sweater is a great match with dark wash jeans, so wear it over a white t-shirt with sharp white sneakers for a perfect summer look.

You won’t need that old grey sweatshirt once you step up your game with this waffle weave cotton crewneck from Theory. The contemporary fit keeps it sleek and not sloppy, but it is just as comfortable as any sweatshirt. Wear it with you dark wash jeans and a white t-shirt while the weather transitions, and throw it on with your shorts once it gets warmer.

We know a lot of gents see “merino wool” and think it’s not going to be right for warmer weather. But that’s just not true. Some wool sweaters are too heavy, but it really just has to do with the weight of the wool and how you plan on wearing it. This Theory sweater is a nice, lighter weight that is ideal as we transition into spring – and will work for chilly evenings once it gets warm, too. Theory sharply created this in a birdseye stitch that gives it a lighter, textured feel and the contemporary fit doesn’t add any bulk. It’s easy with jeans over a white t-shirt for a weekend day of errands, or a casual dinner. And it can be paired with khaki shorts and sneakers as the weather warms up when you’re hanging out on the beach after the sun goes down.

Warmer weather can often mean one exciting thing for many of us…golf. This cotton/cashmere zip neck vest from Peter Millar will keep you comfortable and looking good out on the course. It’s available in a plethora of colors, including several shades of blue, neutrals, and some great pops colors. We like playing with some of the colors, like this blue or the grenadine red to pair with your tan, stone, white, black and navy golf pants. Wear it over a solid white or pattern knit polo shirt, and good luck out there.

The higher v-neck of this Tommy Bahama cotton sweater is great with or without a t-shirt underneath, making it an easy option for a day of relaxing. It is saltwater washed with raw edge seams to give it that perfectly, and instantly, worn-in look. While it comes in several colors, the basalt green (shown) is our favorite for its versatility to wear with jeans or any neutral shorts, and it shows off the stitch work and details effortlessly.
