Victorinox Half Zip Merino Wool Sweater

From the Swiss company best known for it's military-grade cutlery, and under the stylistic direction of a new designer, a re-energized line of menswear has emerged. If you haven't checked out Victorinox lately, you should. Recently injected with a new sense of fashion, their men's line has moved towards a more casual aesthetic while still maintaining elements of performance and technology. Their half-zip merino wool sweater has a bespoke fit with tightly knit wool that locks in warmth. Although the micro-knit fabrics used in manufacturing it draw on the superior technology Victorinox is famous for, this svelte-looking sweater can be worn in really any setting and without shouting "high-performance!" It's refreshing to see this classic brand get it right, putting functionality at the service of fashion. Throw it on over a button-down shirt or crewneck tee and you're good to go. ($195) Buy it
