fjallraven-rivoli-sweaterBuilding up a solid repertoire of sweaters to replace your trusted collegiate hoodie collection (at least for M-F) is a goal that all guys should aspire to. Some of us are farther along than others on this sartorial quest, but if you’re like us and still looking, we’ve got a recommendation for you: Fjallraven’s Rivoli Sweater. We’re jonesing to test one against the mighty New England winter. Available on Fjallraven’s recently launched US website, the Rivoli Sweater is a unique take on the cardigan. Channeling the shocking timely style of Fred Rogers, it eschews the normal low cut button up look in favor of a two-way zippered  front and high collar. The combo works well and begs for some layering; we picture a slim OCBD with a dark knit tie under it. Throw in the fact that its a rib knit made from lambswool and you’ve got a versatile, rugged ally in the fight against winter for years to come.

Editor’s Note: Fjallraven suggests the Rivoli as an excellent layer under one of their G-1000 jackets, and we can’t disagree with their logic.

Cost: $225
