What comes to mind when you think of luxury menswear? Does it bring up wildly expensive styles in impractical fabrics, pieces that are difficult to wear day in and day out?

Fear not, because the cashmere sweater solves those problems handily. Cashmere is a decidedly luxe fabric that’s soft to the touch and ultra-premium, but it’s actually more useful for the stylish man’s wardrobe than you might think at first.

In fact, cashmere sweaters in their many forms – be it classic V-neck or crewneck designs – are highly wearable. That goes for office looks (with a crisp white Oxford shirt and dark blue jeans), date night style (with wool trousers in the winter) or somewhere in the middle.

And while some options are a splurge, others are as fairly priced as can be. Find out what the best cashmere sweaters can do for you.


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
  • Luxury meets function: Although soft and crafted from fine materials, cashmere is an exceptionally useful fabric for stylish sweaters and cold-weather layering. It also layers well over buttondown shirts or casual basics.
  • Office-ready, date night-approved: Want to dial in office style while also investing in a handsome sweater you can wear out on the town? Opt for luxe cashmere in a rich array of colors.
  • Shop and save (it’s possible): Cashmere might call to mind visions of soaring price tags, but there are actually plenty of options that are more economical and just as well-made for your style rotation.

Wills Cashmere Crewneck

Why did I choose it?

Whenever I’m shopping for, well, just about anything, I turn toward Huckberry – the men’s clothing retailer blends the classic with the rugged, the functional with the refined. And Wills, dreamed up by Huckberry, meets the mark, using a subtly stylish crewneck design, versatile color options and premium cashmere fabric in a fairly priced everyday sweater.

Wills Cashmere Crewneck


$128
 

There’s much to love about this Huckberry-approved crewneck, from the fact that it’s made from odor-reducing cashmere to the versatile, crisp colorway and crewneck design.

Wear it with dark selvedge jeans, a blue Oxford shirt and tan leather boots (as I would) or team it with corduroy pants for seasonal style.





Best Premium Cashmere Sweater

James Perse Recycled Cashmere Raglan Sweater


$365
 

With the best cashmere sweaters, you can feel an instant difference in remarkable fabric and fit. And in the hands of the right men’s clothing brand, like the fabric-obsessed James Perse, that difference only becomes more pronounced (in the best way possible).

This sweater takes soft, sustainable recycled cashmere and uses a flattering raglan-sleeve stitch for high-meets-low style.





Best Inexpensive Cashmere Sweater

Quince Mongolian Cashmere Crewneck Sweater


$60
 

Mongolian cashmere is a prized fiber for its soft weave and lightweight yet surprisingly durable build. It makes for a perfect sweater, particularly in a wildly affordable crewneck you can use to dress up a chambray shirt on the weekend or style alongside a stretch dress shirt at the office.






Todd Snyder Cashmere Crewneck


$348
 

Trade in your trusty Todd Snyder x Champion cotton crewneck sweatshirt for something more dressy and luxe, in a way that Snyder only knows how.

Snyder bills them as an “elevated take” on the essentials, with clean seams, classic colors and layering-friendly style beneath a wool blazer or field jacket.






Mott and Bow Classic Cashmere Bergen Crew Sweater


$169
 

While they might seem dressy on the surface, cashmere sweaters are actually minimal enough to pair with crisp blue jeans. That’s why New York-based Mott and Bow designed an incredibly soft, fairly priced option in a sleek crewneck design.






Uniqlo Classic Cashmere Sweater


$80
 

I always look to save – in the right ways – without sacrificing quality while shopping. That ethos can extend to stylish cashmere sweaters, like this Uniqlo version, which the famed basics brand updated with a thicker knit and a rich array of colors.






Lands’ End Fine Gauge Cashmere Crewneck Sweater


$140
 

With insulating yet breathable qualities, the best cashmere sweaters make for a fine base layer beneath more rugged staples, like a waxed jacket or denim jacket. You can find each of those items at Lands’ End, which makes this 100 percent cashmere sweater an ideal purchase at a fair price.






Naadam Original Cashmere Sweater


$98
 

Perhaps you’ve seen ads out there for Naadam, which promises a high-quality cashmere sweater at a near-unbeatable price. In my personal experience, the brand lives up to the hype, offering soft cashmere in an easy-to-style crewneck design – all with enough color options to please every sense of personal style.






Eric Bompard Classic Crewneck Pullover


$410
 

Cashmere is a perfect blank canvas – it can be styled minimally while looking polished in any situation. And there’s hardly anything more timeless than a black cashmere sweater, which pairs readily with wool trousers, blue jeans or tan chinos (to name a few options).
