This Season's Best Knitwear

4 October 2022

With autumn well and truly upon us and temperatures dropping, the need to layer and take comfort in ones' clothes again is here. Besides a good coat (and perhaps footwear), no other category plays such an integral part in our winter wardrobes as that of knitwear.

With this in mind, we've compiled an edit of some of our favourite styles that have arrived so far this season, from both our in-house collection as well as our globally-sourced selection of smart casual menswear brands. From the cosy and classic Shetland sweater to a soft and sleek merino polo shirt, discover the full rundown below.

Batoner Signature Wool Turtle Neck Sweater

A new style for Trunk from the Japanese knitwear specialist, this wool turtle neck sweater is highly reminiscent of the nautical and navy styles worn by fisherman and sailors. The neck is designed to be the perfect size to be worn up or folded over, while the body is knit with sleek raglan sleeves and finished with ribbed cuffs and hem. With a slightly oversized to regular fit, it can be layered over a shirt or worn under a jacket.

Fedeli Recycled Cashmere Boucle Crew Neck Sweater

Made with the same traditional saddle-shoulder construction as our Trunk Berwick Shetland sweater, this crew neck from the Italian brand Fedeli has been made from a sustainable blend of wool and recycled cashmere. With a wonderfully fuzzy boucle texture, it's available in a winter-ready palette of olive, walnut brown and snow white.

Trunk Berwick Donegal Crew Sweater

Building on the popularity of our Trunk Berwick Shetland crew sweater, this new version is crafted from a robust Irish Donegal merino wool. Providing a subtle melange of coloured flecks throughout that are only visible when up close, it features the same fit and construction yet is just a touch heavier, making it perfect for adding a hint of rugged charm to any casual outfit. It's available in a classic grey, midnight blue and a rusty orange, so there should be something for everyone.

Trunk Enford Merino Polo Shirt

Part of our in-house made in Italy knitwear range, the Trunk Enford has been designed to be a versatile smart casual layering piece. Crafted from soft merino wool in a mid-gauge knit, it can be worn with both smart and casual outfits alike and is ideal for layering under a suit jacket in place of a shirt. It's available in classic navy and charcoal, as well as this bottle green colour that is perfect for the upcoming holiday season.

Howlin' Panelled Wool Crew Neck Sweater

Known for their bold and colourful Scottish-made knitwear, Antwerp based brand Howlin' are experts when it comes to combining tasteful playfulness with impeccable craftsmanship. This panelled crew neck sweater is no exception, knitted from multi-coloured panels in a distinctly autumnal colour palette and trimmed with navy for extra definition.
