Men's Knitwear - The Preppy Look

The Preppy Look keeps coming in and out of fashion, but when it’s not in fashion, it’s still a classic. Here you can have chunky or fine knit, it just has to look smart and neat.
The cardigan is always a good choice. Team with lightweight chinos and deck shoes in the spring/summer and khakis and brogues in the autumn/winter.
Go for the polo shirt underneath.

For the jumper go for the retro tennis style. Traditionally a rugged cable guy in off white but some have smoothed their knitting style in to the preppy look and enriched their lives with bursts of colour.
