Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing ones. While we’ve written about the best men’s crewneck sweatshirt, black T-shirts, and white button-downs for men, and even the best boxer briefs, here we’re going deep on the best men’s sweaters you can find on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best men’s cardigan

Classroom Men’s Adult Unisex Cardigan Sweater

“I have always loved cardigan sweaters. But in the past few years, they have been difficult to find, both in stores and online. I bought three of these as the ones I have are showing their age. These garments are well-made with a soft hand, yet are thick and warm. The weave reminds me of my old letterman sweater from high school. I was very pleased when I got them. I’m an older, portly guy, and these fit me very well. The style is classic and the goods are well-made. A real buy for less than $30.”

Best men’s turtleneck sweater

Men’s Combed Cotton Euro Design Ski Casual Turtleneck

“My husband was looking to replace a couple of his turtleneck tops. He has purchased some from local stores and was not happy with the way they fit — the neck would get stretched out. He was ready to go to an outdoor goods store and pay a lot more money when I found these online. He is delighted with the way they fit, they wash well, and they look good.”

Best men’s sweater vest

Blue Ocean Solid Color Sweater Vest

“I purchased one Blue Ocean sweater vest, and it fit and looked so good, I had to order ALL the other colors. The colors are true to their hues. The fit is unbelievably classic and true to size. The material is not that hard, wooly feel, but a smooth, silky feel and look. The sweater vests are not ‘shiny’ or satin-looking. I absolutely love them. I own approximately 15 of these sweaters. I get compliments every time I wear one with jeans or with a shirt and tie. Better priced than the others and they look, fit, and constructed much better than the much higher-priced sweater vests.”

Best men’s cashmere sweater

Williams Cashmere Men’s Crew-Neck Sweater

“This is the most amazing sweater I own. It’s very, very soft, breathes very easily (I can wear it with an undershirt, and I’m comfortable in fall, early winter without a jacket, and don’t get hot at all going into a restaurant or bar). Very versatile. I really like this sweater. This is a must buy if you just want one cashmere sweater. It will be the last one you buy (until you want it in another color).”

Best men’s wool sweater

Pendleton Men’s Shetland Crew Cardigan

“I’ve been looking for a nice crew sweater at a reasonable price, and this fits the bill. It’s well-made and an attractive fabric. These were easy to find a few years back, but somehow simple crewneck wool sweaters are getting hard to find. I’m real pleased with this one.”

Best men’s V-neck sweater

IZOD Men’s Premium Essentials Fine Gauge Solid V-Neck Sweater

“This is a nice, practical sweater. I bought it to provide a layer for our fall river cruise, but I can see that it will also serve me, along with a tie, to add a bit of class when we dine out. Feels good and it fits well over a shirt.”

Best men’s V-neck cardigan

Kallspin Men’s Relax Fit V-Neck Cardigan

“Purchased as a gift and the recipient loves this lightweight, soft sweater. Purchased three and [they’re] exactly what he was looking for. Good quality and comfortable, roomy fit.”

Best men’s cable-knit sweater

IZOD Men’s Premium Essentials Cable Knit 1/4 Zip Sweater

“Izod has always been a consistently reliable brand for well-made, affordable men’s apparel, so it wasn’t really a surprise to open this package and find a beautiful product, purchased by my wife with the holiday season in mind. However, it was a surprise because its red is so vibrant, yet rich, with a cotton weight just right for mild winter temps in the south, and with a perfect cable-knit. I think I’ll see what other colors are available!”

Best men’s knit sweater

LTIFONE Mens Slim Comfortably Knitted Long Sleeve V-Neck Sweaters

“I have gotten a lot of compliments from wearing these sweaters. I bought three. They are slim-fitting through the torso, but I have been told that they look good and more expensive than what I paid for them. They are well-built and not too thin in material. Overall, a great purchase for me.”

Best men’s crewneck sweater

Amazon Essentials Men’s Crewneck Sweater

“Very durable, very warm. I wore the sweater for the first time the other day on a visit to one of our military installations. The fit was great. It looks great with jeans for a semi-casual wear. Will definitely purchase another in a different color.”

Best men’s dress sweater

Comfortably Collared Men’s Perfect Slim Fit Lightweight Soft Fitted V-Neck Pullover Sweater

“The quality is great, looks and feels like an $80 sweater. The fit is exactly what I see from all major brands I shop with. Looks great over the top of a dress shirt. Picking up one of each color.”

Best men’s full-zip sweater

Gioberti Mens Cardigan Twisted Knit Full-Zipper Sweater

“I ordered this sweater for my husband as one of his birthday gifts. The quality is absolutely superb. For the price, it far exceeded my expectations. Not only is this sweater made well, it is also very soft. The fit of the sweater itself is perfect, and my husband loves it just as much as I do. It makes my big, manly man husband look phenomenal.”

Best men’s quarter-zip sweater

Wrangler Authentics Men’s Sweater Fleece Quarter-Zip

“I work in the IT industry and server rooms can be downright cold, but I am expected to dress business casual. These sweaters are just warm enough and launder easily. The smooth surface adds a somewhat more professional image than the Muppet-like appearance of most fleece pullovers, but the fleece inner surface provides just enough warmth for light work in a cold area. They launder easily and are affordable enough to have three of them for regular rotation. I like them and think they’re an outstanding value.”

Best men’s Merino wool sweater

Minus33 Merino Wool Men’s Chocorua Midweight Crew

“I picked this up as a base layer for cold-weather cycling here in Minnesota. It’s comfortable, regulates heat well, moisture-wicking, odor resistant, and all the other great qualities of Merino wool. By itself, it’s perfect for that awkward time between seasons when it’s too warm for a soft shell but too cold to go bare. I wear it on my commute over a T-shirt from about 36 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. After that, I throw a soft shell over it, and I can stay warm in below-zero temperatures. The only downside is the price, but if you’re like me and will use it a lot, Merino wool is always worth the extra investment.”

Best men’s button-up sweater

H2H Mens Casual Slim Fit Pullover

“I bought this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. He is completely in love with it. (He wore it four days in a row after and didn’t want to wear anything else.) It seems to be made really well and with quality materials. The sweater feels super soft but the fabric is thick enough to maintain the overall structure perfectly, so the neck looks nice. Plus the gray fabric and pattern is so visually appealing. I would definitely buy more for him.”
