scoop neck sweaters for men

I’m pretty liberal in my fashion commentary and decisions. As a man who appreciates well-designed pieces and enjoys a new, stand-out look as much as the next guy, I must draw the line somewhere. Shawl collar, v-neck, crewneck, hell, even y-neck… you’ve witnessed me regard their merits in diversifying your knitwear arsenal. However, the draping scoop-neck is just taking a step in the wrong direction, I believe, for the everyday man.

An acceptable “scoop” neck is really just an exaggerated crew neck sweater that is completely acceptable when worn over a t-shirt. An unacceptable scoop-neck is overly exaggerated and includes excessive fabric drapery leaping from the folds in this grandiose neckline. Pretty much, you’ll look like your girlfriend.

Acceptable Scoop:

nothing wrong with this

nothing wrong with this

Not So Acceptable:

i'd advise staying indoors like this--get a t-shirt.

i'd advise staying indoors. get an undershirt.

Completely Unacceptable:

shirt or no shirt underneath, this is unacceptable scoopage and drapery

shirt or no shirt underneath, this is unacceptable scoopage and drapery

Further, this is just bullshit:

why are you doing this?

why are you doing this?

Acquire carefully, gents.

    Swoop necks exist for a reason; to accentuate 2 things dudes do not have. Therefore, dudes should not wear the s-neck.
