Casual Sweater Style: Mountain Man, Sporty Dude, & More

If a casual Fall or Winter day doesn’t make you think of lounging around in a cozy sweater, we’re about to change all that. Big, chunky sweaters with Intarsia and Fair Isle patterns are must-haves this season – think woodsy, log cabin looks and get ready to channel your inner Frontier Man. But there’s more. Mod and ‘70’s inspirations brought back turtlenecks; the military trend has given us back olive and camouflage; and, athleisure trends continue to incorporate hoodies and luxe casual wear to our weekends. With so many options, we’ve edited down to some of the very best for every relaxed Fall day.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our favorite sweaters for work or after 5 this week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Nordic style looks so fresh this season, but it is a timeless look that Ralph Lauren always knows how to tackle. The shawl collar and zipper perfectly offset the hand-knitted wool blend, only adding to the rich outdoorsy look. Think of it as your weekend jacket or hoodie replacement – with a whole lot more rugged style. Wear it with your favorite broken-in jeans and a t-shirt or thermal; or, with a great pair of corduroys over a washed denim shirt...shaving optional. And right now you can get it for 25% off with code RLGIVE15.

Billy Reid - Indian Trim Fit Stripe Crewneck Sweatshirt
Billy Reid found a way to marry your favorite sweatshirt with a lightweight sweater to create a great top you’ll want to wear every Fall weekend. The raglan sleeves and bar striping give it an athletic look, while the grey/blue combination is perfect for your favorite jeans or a great pair of navy joggers (you know, your fancy sweats). The contemporary fit keeps it from looking sloppy, so you can even step it up over a casual white oxford button up shirt.

This chunky marled cotton knit cardigan from Michael Stars is weekend perfection. It’s so much better looking than a zip-up hoodie, but it is just as comfortable and easy to throw on with your favorite jeans and joggers. The perk is that it can also be worn with corduroys or twill jeans for a nicer brunch or a night at your favorite local restaurant/bar. You can wear it over that t-shirt you were wearing while watching the game on the couch, or layer it over a dark pattern button up shirt. The modern fit isn’t too trim, but lean enough to keep it from looking sloppy.

Tommy Bahama’s take on a casual stripe sweater/sweatshirt hybrid offers a relaxed fit option (as opposed to the trimmer fit above). The cotton and cashmere blend is seriously soft that, along with the sweatshirt detailing at the neck and the contrast raised seams, makes for an easy choice for a weekend of errands or - relaxing. The dark ink color is a no-brainer with your jeans, navy and grey joggers, or basic khakis.

Gents, we know you love wearing that old (we mean, old) college sweatshirt, but this cotton and cashmere knit from Tommy Bahama is just as comfortable – and let’s face it, it’s going to get your family to stop picking on you. The heather grey color, super soft fabric, and relaxed fit won’t change your comfort level one bit, and you can still wear it with your jeans, joggers and twill pants. Really, it’s time.

You may not get through the weekend without throwing on a track jacket at some point, and Theory has one of the best. (If you don’t normally wear one, this one will change all that.) The trim fit, stand collar, and contrast panels on the sleeve make it more than just a basic black track jacket so you can wear it with stylish confidence and still feel casually sporty. Wear it all weekend long with jeans and joggers. It even makes all your logo’ed t-shirts look good.

As we mentioned in Clothes & Conversations, Fair Isle patterns have returned to menswear in a big fashion way. Penfield, an innovative 40-year old Massachusetts company, incorporated the tradition of Fair Isle to this contemporary fitting wool pullover. The oatmeal color looks great with jeans and a t-shirt. Or play up the rugged feel with brown cords and a washed denim button up shirt. The earthy color palette is just so Fall right, you’ll want to head out to a pumpkin patch.

From Ralph Lauren’s rugged Denim & Supply line, this cotton sweater has a Donegal tweed look (that’s when small pieces of another color yarn are woven in to the fabric) and an athletic-inspired silhouette (check out the contrast seaming and ribbing) for weekend perfection. The dark brown is what really makes it so extra special, creating a great alternative to grey that looks just as good with denim, and pops against all the basic tan and rich caramels bottoms you already have. It looks great over a heather grey t-shirt or a denim shirt. The contemporary fit is lean, playing into the athletic look, so size up if you want a more relaxed silhouette. Right now you can get it for 25% off with code RLGIVE15.

With the beefier look of sweaters this season, let’s face it, it can get downright hot in all wool. Obey creates the look of a chunky sweater, in a timeless shaker knit and versatile cream color, but blends the wool with acrylic to keep it from being too insulating. The raglan sleeve is a wonderful detail that creates a relaxed, weekend look. Wear it with jeans, joggers, cords, you name it. And go ahead and wear it with any color. If you’ve got a deep orange t-shirt or a pair of dark green pants, this sweater is going to look great with them. And the price is pretty darn great, too.
