Some people can’t wait for the summer to be over so they can wrap up warm and enjoy steaming mugs of mulled wine around a roaring fire. Sure, that’s not a joy most of us get to experience, unless your mansion has a fireplace and your budget can stretch to keeping a chimney sweep on staff, but we can all enjoy the cosy embrace of a fine piece of knitwear.

With many different styles available, we’ve chosen a few of the best to keep you feeling snug this winter.


Burton Fisherman

There are eight colourways of this reasonably-priced staple so you may wish to pick up a couple, especially since the thin-ribbed texture makes it more appropriate for smart-casual settings than some of its chunkier cousins.

Finisterre Westray

This luxury item is slimmer in cut and thinner than the other tops here, making it a go-to when assembling a layered look. It also means it can see you through early spring, too.
