The Taru black open-sides sleeveless men’s sweater is a great piece to add layers to your outfit. You could see it as a different form of a long cardigan. Our inspiration for this eccentric dark fashion item comes partly from a chasuble and a pinafore.
A bit unusual about this black knitted men’s sleeveless sweater is that it is raw edge finished. This way it gives the sweater some unexpected details. The neckline is finished with a ribbed board. The open sides of this sleeveless item have a tie closure.
The nice texture of the waffle knit has a very classical look and combined with the elegant roughness of the raw edge finishings it get a modern look and feel. The raw edge centre front and back seam breaks the classic knit and gives a nice lively detail. The raw edge might fray some more but that’s part of the beauty of this sleeveless men’s sweater with open sides.
How to style this black open-sides sleeveless men’s sweater
This black open-sides sleeveless men’s sweater with raw edge finishings is an easy to wear item. You can play around with it and wear it over long sleeves and shirts for different looks.
For an elegant and dark wear outfit we combined this sleeveless sweater with open sides over our black bamboo turtleneck with extra long sleeves. Together with black slim trousers and a black satin hat you have a chic yet tough looking outfit. Black boots or black sneakers complete this eccentric outfit. If you want it to look a bit more playful, go for a striped long sleeve. If you want to add some color, go for a bright monochrome top or for one with a pattern.
A black or dark blue shirt also works well to wear underneath this long sleeveless sweater with open sides. Our hydrophilic cotton shirts have a wrinkly texture which goes well with the texture of the waffle knit. Wear it with relaxed trousers and a fancy shoe and you are ready for that gallery opening or stylish meeting.
Features of waffle knit
Waffle fabric, also known as honeycomb fabric, can be made by either weaving or knitting. It has raised threads that form small square grids which produces a three-dimensional effect, like the pattern of an ultra-miniature breakfast waffle, which is how it gets its name. This style of weave or knit makes fabric more breathable than most, and more absorbent. Waffle knitted fabrics also have thermal qualities.
