Once exclusively associated with golfers and preppy kids, recent times have seen the V-neck sweater emerge as a coveted piece for any fashion-forward man’s wardrobe. While crewneck and turtleneck sweaters have been a mainstay of recent seasons, the V-neck has become a signature cut in many SS19 collections. After all, nothing beats the versatility of a plunged collar — with sleeveless options offering maximum opportunity to showcase your favorite shirt underneath.

Leading the way with the trend, luxury fashion labels Gucci and Maison Margiela have each put their own spins on the statement knitwear, including all-over GG jacquard designs and a particularly chic knitted V-neck vest. Styles tend to come in rib and cable knits, and while designs vary from all-over logo prints to block colors in both relaxed and cropped fits, one thing remains constant – these pieces are made to stand out.

“This chunky V-neck by Margiela is a solid piece to put over another top, or even to wear alone,” says Highsnobiety’s Noah Thomas (above) of the trend. “It has a nice weight to it because of the super thick weave, which also gives the fabric the ability to sit in place, creating a great shape. I actually think this sweater is a bigger statement piece when it's doing its own thing and not matching with your other garms.”

More highlights of the current season include a distressed white sweater from Doublet complete with oversized Lacoste crocodile, a relaxed-fit black option featuring zips at the cuffs by Unused, and an eye-catching neon yellow piece from Acne Studios.
