How to Wear a Shawl Collar Cardigan Without Looking Like Grandpa

Over the last few years, the shawl collar cardigan (aka the grandpa cardigan) has become a cold weather men’s wardrobe staple.  The marled shawl collar cardigan evokes memories of  your grandpa’s favorite oversized sweater - the one he always wore to family dinner.  Today’s grandpa cardigans are similarly cozy, but they’re cut closer to the body for a more form fitting shape.  We love pairing the knobby, textured cardigan with other distinctive textures - a rough denim or a velvety corduroy would do the trick.  Finish off the outfit with a rough and ready boot for a look that’s casually rugged.

Here’s how to get the look:
