Transitional knitwear pieces for the coming months

As Autumn and winter fully take hold and the air starts to get chilly it’s time to make sure you have the right transitional knitwear pieces to hand. These pieces are versatile, timeless and every stylish man should own them.

Roll neck

The roll neck isn’t for everyone but we feel once you’ve tried one you don’t go back, they are designed flawlessly to keep you and your neck warm which can look super flattening to the slender silhouette.

The roll is an elegant fold in the beautiful knit that creates a bit of texture to the look without pulling all the attention. It looks great as a piece layered under a blazer or jacket.  


For a more casual dressed-down feel the cardigan is an easy way to add some warmth to a great outfit. It’s easy to slip on and off depending on the temperature of the dress code and it’s something that’s always useful to have on hand.

You can also look at different styles, including chunky cable knit or fine knit.

Crew neck

This is the most traditional piece of knitwear any man can own, the humble crew neck.

A simple but extremely faltering shape that can be paired with most outfits and is one of the few knitwear pieces that can span almost all dress codes. If you want to wear it to a business meeting then it will fit right in.  We would definitely recommend investing in your crewnecks and buying them in Merino and Cashmere because it’s just worth that extra bit of luxury, comfort, and warmth.

V Neck

The V-neck comes with all the same attributes and qualities that the Crew neck des but it is a personal choice on what styles suits you best and how much shirt/tie you want to show off. Maybe a V-neck is the one for the smartest days in the office.

When it comes to winter transitional pieces these are your go-to.

Here at Fielding & Nicholson, we have a range of bespoke smart causal pieces that include knitwear, speak to one of our tailoring consultants to see the range.
