The history of knitwear stretches back a mind-blowing amount of years, with traditional knit techniques being traced back to the 11th century, hundreds of years before the word streetwear was probably ever uttered. And still, knitwear continues to be a mainstay in menswear. It’s a versatile type of clothing that works well with many looks, whether you’re more fond of formal or like to keep it casual.

Despite its long-running place in fashion, our favorite knitwear pieces on the market right now are far from traditional. Sourced from a range of high-end retailers such as SSENSE, our picks include a Burberry argyle sweatshirt that quite literally breaks from knit tradition with its cut-out detailing.

We’ve also highlighted this hand-knit Prada wool sweater, which will take any ‘fit to the next level with its purple lightning graphic.
