The Crewneck Sweatshirt
November 22nd, 2012
Montreal is in the awkward transition stage between fall and winter, why is it awkward? You really never know what the weather will be like from day to day one day may have a bit of a chill and the next way too much sun and others will have your teeth chattering. Weather lady isn’t really doing her job right, it’s as if she doesn’t know how to tell the truth anymore and is just as confused as everyone else throwing up temperatures that are way too misleading.
The crewneck sweatshirt is one of my favorite go to pieces for this awkward transitional period. It can be styled over a collar, even throw in a tie if you like to give it that sprezzatura touch. It’s a way good way to mesh a bit of ruggedness into an otherwise bland outfit, drawing from the unpretentious end of the work wear playbook. The grey crewneck is an all time classic it never fails, just be sure to ditch the gym bag and whistles.
“Sweaters are a versatile item of clothing and can be worn on top of almost any outfit. Sports sweaters, especially hoodies, are often worn on tops of sports kit while traveling to or from a sports ground. Sweaters can be worn with a dress shirt underneath (and optionally a tie), which has the advantage of allowing the wearer to have the option of removing the sweater when it is uncomfortably warm and still looking presentable in many situations. Layering and the ease with which it allows for temperature regulation is a major benefit of the sweater as an article of clothing. ”
