Three ways to wear a woollen sweater.

There are certain items in every well-dressed man’s wardrobe that are timeless classics, as much of a statement piece as they are an everyday essential, finishing of any outfit to perfection. One of these garments is the woollen sweater. This wonderful piece of knitwear, if created using fine materials to an excellent standard, can see any man through a range of seasons and style choices to suit every mood or occasion.

At Classic Portuguese, we are passionate about offering our customers versatile, classic clothing, meticulously manufactured using time-old techniques so that it is built to last through all of life’s journeys. This is why our debut ‘Serra’ collection comprises of three sweaters, crafted in a blend of merino wool and cashmere, available in Alpine, Ocean and Terracotta tones. Just one sweater can last a lifetime – here are just three ways that it can be styled.


Many men opt for a uniform of dark jeans and a crisp, white tee as their every-day look. Layering up with a thin, soft jumper over the top can add a classic element to this casual style, making the image slightly smarter but never feeling too formal. This look can be edited accordingly with the shoes and shirt that is chosen. For relaxing weekends with friends, a pair of statement trainers such as Converse or Superga add a sporty feel, but for heading out to restaurants or when needing to dress-to-impress, switching to a collar shirt and lace up, leather boots finishes the style perfectly.

Under a suit

A sweater may not be the first additional garment that many think of when looking to complete a suited ensemble, but a high-quality piece of knitwear can add a contemporary edge to this iconic menswear two-piece. When wearing a sweater with a suit, we recommend going without a tie so that the wonderfully crafted sweater can be the highlight of the outfit.

Contemporary comfort

In 2016 we are no longer shy of dressing for comfort and sporty looks are on the rise, seen on the catwalks and high streets alike across the country. However, this is never at the sacrifice of personal style and streetwear has been injected with a new lease of life in recent times. Jogging bottoms or loose fitting trousers can be found in premium textiles and flattering fits, and when teamed with a soft sweater and beanie hat both style and comfort boxes are ticked. 

Investing in a sweater from our Serra collection can complete any outfit with confidence. Browse the full range online.
