What do you think about a knitted hoodie?

We talked about smart causal pieces a lot during lockdown as well as pieces you could be comfortable in at home but also be smart enough for a quick zoom call and high-quality knitwear was at the top of the list, especially hoodies.

Even though you don’t associate the word hoody with a smart wardrobe these luxury pieces of knitwear are perfect for the winter months.

When looking at these hoodies you are looking for high-quality knits made from merino or cashmere or blends making them lightweight, breathable, and incredibly soft to the touch.

Great to wear over your suit trousers and a white shirt on a colder morning around the office if they allow it. We would opt for neutral tones such as blues greens, grey, and oatmeal.

There are other styling options such as zip through or over the head depending on what kind of look you are going for.

And don’t get us wrong we know these will never replace the classic v or crew neck jumpers when looking for a smart casual outfit, but don’t rule out the hoodie. It’s an interesting difference in your wardrobe that will get you compliments and respect when it comes to making your smart-casual wardrobe a bit more interesting.

It’s worth having a look online and getting some styling inspiration then having a chat with one of our tailoring consultants who will be more than happy to guide you.
