The Tenors Make a Festive Case for the Statement Sweater

With their new holiday album, The Tenors are having more fun than you are. So allow them to demonstrate the art of the statement sweater.

Magnetic Stripes


Any good party needs someone to be the life of it. Turn up the volume, crack open another bottle, and pull on a sweater with some high-saturation stripes. For a sweater with this much personality, a faithful pair of jeans is the ideal wingman.

Campus Crew


A subdued palette puts a refined spin on letterman embroidery and athletic stripes. The Ivy League look continues with plaid pants and jazzed-up loafers a step beyond The Preppy Handbook.

Cable Guy


Immortalized by Ernest Hemingway, the fisherman’s sweater is a tried-and-true menswear classic. The knitwear geniuses at Missoni built on Papa’s tradition by adding a fresh stripe of mint to the cable knit’s typical neutrals.

Mountain Dudes


In vibrant orange or a camel-and-cream colour combo, these turtlenecks feel like the kind of style moves you’d see in vintage photos from a St. Moritz chalet. Mind you, these reissues are updated with a more tailored fit — so go easy on the fondue.

Cherry Bomb


There’s a reason why sports cars come in red. The primary colour makes a confident statement — whether you go monochrome for maximum impact or opt for a bold pop around the collar.
