As part of our recent Fashion Week coverage, we talked crop tops, and how a resurgence of clipped knits, sweaters, and tees was well underway. While garments of the wool variety were noticeably shorter at this season’s biggest shows, another recurrent theme of both Paris and Milan runways was the cardigan.

Prada, Gucci, Fendi — the cardigan was present at these blockbuster shows, and more. And as if it even needed a helping hand, Tyler the Creator turning up to the Gucci show in the fashion house’s white GG logo cardi cemented its place as a must-have wardrobe element for any modern rotation.

From easy-on-the-wallet options to Tyler-approved designer knits, shop some of the best cardigans for men below.
