Why is it a Find? This Jack Spade button neck pullover takes a basic fleece to a stylishly updated level that is perfect for easy days. Stepping up a basic sweatshirt, the really cool dark elbow patches (click through the ‘shop it’ button to check them out), and contrast waffle knit trim and seaming give it just enough polish to ensure you’ll feel confident going straight from the couch to the mall or entertaining those neighbors that just dropped in.
Wear it with: Wear it with any of your favorite jeans or cotton twill pants. Layer it over a long sleeve t-shirt for a casual look, and dress it up with a solid or pattern button up shirt. The versatility makes it a great piece for traveling.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary. Size up for an easier fit.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fit, this Tailor Vintage pullover is just the right alternative.

Hangin’ at Home.
Why is it a Find? This Everlane French cotton terry hoodie combines comfort and style, ideal for a holiday “hang”. And Everlane’s transparent pricing, selling directly to customers online, ensures you’re getting the best quality for a great price. The marled knit, with contrast ribbed cuffs and hem, gives it a distinctive look. The hood is even lined and there is lots of topstitch detailing to give it a high quality finish.
Wear it with: We’re showing it with some easy drawstrings and a striped t-shirt in this outfit, ideal for easy lounging. But it’s great with jeans, cotton twill pants, and joggers, too. And really, you can layer it over any of your t-shirts.
Fit Tip: Everlane’s fit is modern, as is the design, for a super comfortable fit that isn’t baggy. For an easy, loose fit, size up.

Venturing Out.
Why is it a Find? Whether you’re heading to the mall for that last-minute shopping trip or meeting up with friends for drinks, Tommy Bahama’s sweater has just the right cozy pop of holiday cheer. The wool, cotton and cashmere blend is soft and comfortable, with a shawl collar to give the classic Fair Isle pattern a modern look.

Why is it a Find? Brooks Brothers’ blue and white fine striped button up shirt is a polished and unexpected alternative to a solid button up. Since the stripe is so subtle, it can be worn like a solid, but it’s just a bit more interesting, making for a nice compliment under most any bolder pattern.
Wear it with: This is a great shirt to layer under the pattern sweater we’re featuring in this outfit (left), and looks just as good under a solid or on its own, so you know you’ll get plenty of wear out of it.
Fit Tip: Brooks Brothers Regent fit is modern but not skinny – a great fit for most gents.
Alternatives: Brooks Brothers’ Red Fleece shirt is our pick for a trimmer, contemporary fit.
