Textured chunky knit sweaters

There's nothing like a great sweater to make you actually look forward to Autumn Winter is you have one you love? If not, I've picked out some of my favourites in textured, chunky styles and as you're probably less likely to be going to the office, and more likely to be going for walks and socialising outside this winter it'll get plenty of wear. What better excuse do you need to treat yourself?

Slowear roll neck sweater - chunky textured knits for men

A roll neck sweater is fabulously flattering for those with necks of giraffe like proportions. This wool and yak one is extra special with the added detail of the subtle change in colour. Wear it with jeans, stone coloured cords, or navy chinos for your autumn winter walks.

Inis Meain roll neck sweater - style consultations for men

Inspired by old photos of the men in hand knitted sweaters on the Aran Islands (of which Inis Meáin is one) the Inis Meáin Knitting Company has interpreted and reinvented the traditional designs of the fisherman's sweater. They've given this one a modern feel with the ombré finish and wool and cashmere mix to make the perfect cosy sweater for winter.

Find shopping painful? Here's what one client said about his recent shopping trip with me:

"Sarah was well prepared and had researched well before we met. She had a plan right from the start and was full of enthusiasm and ideas. We worked through her list and had found all that we had set out for by the end of the day. Her confidence and rapport with the sales staff eased all the usual tension from the clothes shopping experience and all I had to do was try on clothes.

The day after the shop, Sarah sent me a comprehensive document listing the various 'outfits' suggesting the various sensible combinations from the items I had bought. The number of different combinations testament to the thought and care taken when selecting individual items to ensure a cohesive and flexible wardrobe."
