Too many think that the cardigan is either for the hipster or the 90 year old man. The common man doesn’t see how it fits into their wardrobe because they feel that in order to pull it off, they need to have a size 27 waist. Well, that’s not the truth. Actually, the cardigan can be a great play for a guy who has a larger frame because it will slim your midriff. Get something simple, like this one by J. Crew, and wear it under a blazer. It’ll act as almost a cool vest, giving you a pseudo 3-piece suit kind of look. It’s tough to find a good cardigan, though, because you need something that isn’t overly chunky, but cashmere can run close to $1,000 at times. That’s why we want you to take a look at merino. It’s almost like a poor man’s cashmere because of the way it feels. You can get this one from J. Crew for $85.
