Men’s Fair Isle knits
Particularly prevalent in London, but also in Paris recently, men’s Fair Isle knits look set to be an autumn 11 hit. Smaller-scale alpine patterns are popular, while palettes range from pastel mixes to 1970s-style ochre, moss green and chromatic greys. These knits can be teamed with quilted jackets for a casual take on the trend but quite often are styled with glasses, shirts and overcoats for a dapper English look. WGSN particularly loves the oversized cardigan version (top left).
