Slim Fitting Sweaters For Smaller Guys
One of my favourite items of clothing is the humble sweater. This time of year in particular they come into their own, with such beautiful autumn colours available in a variety of materials to keep us wrapped up warm. However, this positive includes a negative for me, namely trying to find pieces that fit just how I like. It’s no secret that I prefer my clothing slim and well fitted and knitwear is no exception.
There was a time when it was nearly impossible to get even a simple t-shirt in a smaller size, giant oversized clothing was unfortunately the norm. Thankfully over time more brands have grown wise to the appeal of slimmer fitting clothing as well as accommodating for men with smaller frames. Still, hunting for a great fitting sweater is a difficult process and the search can be a long drawn out task for those of us who are slim. Thankfully there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
Topman and ASOS are two brands at the forefront of reversing the status quo of ill fitting knitwear. Both companies are well known for their fashion forward designs and on trend items and recently have started stocking a huge range of different sizes for smaller guys, including fits from XXXS and upwards, ensuring even the slimmest knitwear fan will find something that hugs their body.
In addition to this is the muscle fit style jumper, which despite its name is not just the clothing of choice for dedicated gym goers (but it does help show off the muscular physique too). It’s equally suitable for guys who have a slim figure, especially with its tighter fit in the arms and stomach area. This trend is clearly gaining popularity, in time we can hope that even higher end designer brands will start offering smaller sizes and slimmer cuts too. I’ve chosen my favourite items to feature on my men’s fashion blog below for those of you men looking for tight fitting sweaters for your thinner bodies.
