THE SUNDOWN SWEATSHIRT
Sunny days often lead to cooler nights – this casual sweater will ensure you don’t get caught out in the cold of the evening, says menswear editor Ian Wright
We’d all love to pretend that summer means endless warmth right into the evening, but the reality, in the UK anyway, is that nights can get chilly when you’re out enjoying yourself. While the knitwear pieces you already own will certainly keep you toasty, they’re a bit like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut: their woolly weight will see you go from freezing to overheating in an instant. Enter this light sweatshirt cut in a fine cotton that has just enough bulk to combat the cold without getting you hot under the collar. What’s more, the sporty but smart style’s soft handle and washed denim effect give it a worn-in vintage feel, as if it’s already seen its fair share of exciting summer nights. An essential seasonal layer.
