As you know, it's actually a sweatshirt. Sneakers and faded jeans or cutoff shorts should work fine.

to me, a sweater generally has texture to it, and can be a variety of materials, while a sweatshirt is flat, and cotton, poly or cotton/poly blend.

hard to tell from your pics, but i would call it a sweater, especially due to the cuffs and hem.

sweater



or



sweatshirt

Dude, sweater is not the preferred nomenclature; cardigan, please.
post #84845 of 115953
well, for me, a cardigan has to have buttons. so the SNS is guess is a cardigan. but i would call anything else without buttons, in my aforementioned definition of sweaters, a sweater.

please dont kill me.

let's get pedantic because it's better than whatever was going on before.

 

sweater is knit, sweatshirt is woven maybe, since you can have knit cotton sweaters?

 

UK crew - where does jumper fall into this? is that just a sweater or sweatshirt that is a pullover of some kind?

yay for pedantics!!

like hendrix, i thought jumper just meant what one would call a crew or v neck pullover sweater.

right, but a cardigan is a type of sweater, no?

 

that's why I'm thinking (let's just keep it American, and menswear) that a sweater is a catch-all for any knit top for men (excluding jerseys and knit polos).  types of sweaters including crewneck, vneck, turtleneck, cardigan, sweater-vest, even hooded, etc..  can be any type or combination of wools, cotton, linen, etc.

 

and that sweatshirt implies that it's woven.  these come in crewneck and hooded forms that I know of.  hooded can be zippered as well.

 

These are just guesses but it's how it works in my head.

^this^

then there are cardigans made out of materials more similar to sweatshirts than sweaters, but those are ugly so I won't acknowledge them
