Twist Style Friday: Shannonmore for guys

Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle.


 

The fiber crafts in my house are exploding a little bit. I'm often working on several projects at once, but one of them these days is literally enormous (it's a secret for now, but it's my first time using thirteen skeins of the same yarn for literally anything). My dear friend and colleague David gave me (on long term loan) a ball winder, which is sort of changing my life, my scrappy knit blanket has taken up residence on the living room couch, and my housemate Lucy just took up weaving. So my job is to cover all of the humans in wool, and some of the surfaces with WIPs, and Lucy's can be to cover the walls and other surfaces with decorative weaving. Sorry to our other housemate Marcus, who has a more ambivalent (and maybe healthier) relationship with knitting and the sister arts.

 

Today on Style Friday, we are looking at Shannonmore, the men's version. This is a densely cabled, superwarm, classic sweater. It's stunning.

Just look at this shoulder saddle. See how the sleeve cable runs right up to the collar? It's so perfect.

One of the things that's great about such a classic shape and style (especially if you use a workhorse yarn like this one) is that this sweater makes as much sense on a teenager as it does on an octogenarian.

 

Men's fashion isn't exactly an area of expertise for me, but I have it a whirl! Have a look at a few outfits for men featuring Shannonmore.
