Knitwear, but not as you know it. Our lightweight knits can be worn alone in the summer months to keep your feeling cool and looking sharp but are also thin enough to be comfortably layered beneath tailoring. As the temperatures drop, layer them up for warmth without the bulk.
Our men’s fine knits are the key to year round layering. In the summer months, a fine knit men’s sweater is all you need to keep those cool breezes at bay. When the temperature starts to drop, layer a fine knit sweater over a t-shirt and style with a jacket for a look which is cosy yet cool and streamlined.
Gauge simply refers to the number of stitches a garment has per inch. The finer the needle or yarn is, the slighter the stitch will be and therefore the gauge will be higher which creates our fine knit men’s garments. Our merino wool fine men’s knitwear is available in two gauges; 24 and 30.
The 30-gauge is our most lightweight knit and is ideal for the warmer months of the year as it’s thin enough to be worn under tailoring without adding unnecessary bulk to your frame. Our merino wool menswear is recognised as the ultimate transeasonal staple; regulating your body temperature to keep you comfortable throughout the day and in to the evening.
In the autumn and winter months, you’re more likely to find a range of 24-gauge medium weight knitwear. Whilst still lightweight, we find the 24-guage more suitable when the temperatures are dropping. It’s still fine enough to be worn under tailoring but offers a touch more protection against the elements than the 30.
