It’s that time of year again for most where the temperature begins to dip and as the mornings get colder and the evenings draw in quicker, thoughts turn to preparations for the season ahead, both in terms of golf and lifestyle.

Knitwear is an essential this season and although it is not quite cold enough yet for those thick, chunky jumpers, lightweight knitwear is definitely a go-to option providing just enough additional warmth without compromising your style.
This season, we see knitwear from some of our top brands in a variety of different designs from crew necks to v-necks, quarter zips to button ups, all of which are either plain or patterned. When it comes to choosing the perfect item that best suits your style, it is always worth looking at material, texture and fit.
Patterned knitwear is a great opportunity to express your personality with the use of argyles, stripes and colour blocking. With a great selection of jumpers that suits all tastes, we are sure you will find something you like that is a little out of your comfort zone. What’s more, opting for a patterned jumper as opposed to a plain one will allow for extra colour matching options and provide an extra element to an existing outfit.
We all know that the v-neck can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion and as it stands, this is a wardrobe staple that must not be forgotten. The classic v-neck offers comfort and style and allows for the choice of under garment to show through whether you’re wearing a polo, t-shirt or formal shirt and tie. A smart option which can be found in cotton, merino wool or lambswool.
The crew neck, a popular choice last Autumn, is again readily available across a range of brands on the site. One of the great things about the crew neck is its versatility. Much like the v-neck, no matter where you choose to wear the crew neck, it can easily be dressed up as it can down. Formal shirts work great with sleeves rolled up for an off course, casual look.
Each season, we continue to see the quarter zip sweater coming through and this season is no different. Brands such as J.Lindeberg and Aquascutum do this and they do this well. One of the great attributes of the quarter zip is the option to zip it all the way up or leave it down showing off the shirt underneath. A comfortable and versatile piece that is a great final layer for a few beers after a gruesome 18 holes.
Finally, we look at the button up. A light weight cardigan is a must have this season and much like the crew neck and v-neck as previously discussed, can be worn with ease both on and off the course. Wear open over a polo for a casual day out or dress this up with a shirt for a more formal event. The cardigan also works well with denim or tailored pants, just ensure the colours compliment each other.
Lightweight knitwear will certainly keep you warm during the colder Autumn months and as the summer days become a thing of the past, now is the best time to start thinking about what will best suit your style this season. Whether you prefer plain or patterned, cotton or wool, the choice is totally up to you. Whatever you decide, wear it well!
