    I've been trying on sweaters in the last few days but i'm having problems with what to wear under them. I'm sure crewnecks are more versatile than v necks, although i do like both. So how do you guys wear them ? One look i know i'm not into is the t shirt under a v neck look but i'm open to other suggestions. Pictures / links would be good as well

    Button down shirt under a v-neck is my go to look in the winter. Otherwise, I wear a v-neck tshirt underneath. Wear a funky color or bright button down shirt underneath if you want to spice things up a bit. Personally, I am a fan of the v-neck sweater as it suits my facial structure better than a crew neck. I'm back in school now, so I don't have many opportunities to wear ties I accumulated when I was working. Wearing a tie with a button down shirt and sweater is a good way for me to keep them in rotation. Yeah, I still rock the sweater vest too.

    I wear sweaters whenever I can; I love them.

    I prefer crewnecks over vnecks; just a personal preferance. I have a charchol crewneck that I wear with collared shirts and tshirts under all the time. I also have a light grey vneck that I wear with either a vneck tshirt under, a henley under or a collared shirt. I also have a black cardigan that I wear with tshirts and polos. I don't usually wear the cardigan with a collared shirt because I think it looks too dressy for casual wear.

    Hope that helped.

    I like v-necks more than crewnecks to wear with collared shirts or a tee under but again, it's just personal preference. I'm not a big fan of cardigans but I love sweater vests... In fact I'm looking for a nice argyle print one right now [​IMG]

    Try to find shallower v-necks. You can still wear them with a buttonup shirt and optionally a tie, but assuming you're in reasonable shape, i.e. your chest isn't flat to sunken (I'm borderline here IMO) you can also wear them with nothing showing underneath.

    I also really like my henley/shawl-ish collar sweater, and 1/4 to full zip turtlenecks. I find they look good with a short collared polo shirt popped underneath. I don't mind crewnecks - have a few of those. I hate mocknecks, the kind that only come halfway up the neck - they look very sportscastery to me and are usually loose fitting, yuck. Zip hoodie sweaters would be great, but non-zip ones are far too warm for me.

    And polo collar sweaters have always been good. I had a Polo RL polo collar long sleeve sweater that I wore until it fell apart. Lambswool, I would just let the collar do whatever, button it to the top and pop it on cold days. I ended up cutting thumb holes in the sleeves by the time it was on its way out.

    I'm not a fan of cardigans for me, but they can look good IMO. I saw a dude wearing a tracksuit or something and thought it was this, but it wasn't - anyway I thought it would look really, really cool (and I would wear it) to have a thin cashmere or lambswool black cardigan with a slim shawl collar with white edging the pockets, cuffs, hems and lapels. If a designer wants to do this, just send me one free please. If you do it with a zipper, use a double zip so I can open the bottom a bit to avoid the gut look. Thx.

    I went out bar golfing with some buddies a few weeks ago and decided to hit up thrift stores for some genuine golf attire to wear that night. As a joke my friend found a blue sweater vest and a salmon dress shirt to wear. Funny thing is it actually looked good and got complimented on it throughout the night. Go figure. P.S. I really like the look of this sweater: http://www.polo.com/product/index.js...entPage=family

    Some sweaters look best without anything underneath them. Like this one for example... [​IMG]

    I'd have to agree with you, j, on the henley and zip turtleneck sweaters cause I forgot to mention them. I think they look great with collared shirts or even a plain tee showing a little underneath. I think some of those thin pullover hoodies look great as well
