Why do men wear sweaters?
I never liked pullover sweaters as a child. I’ve always been sensitive to itchy fabric, and most sweaters are made of wool. But more than that, I always felt constricted by them. Like I was pulling a mini straitjacket on. I didn’t mind cardigans so much, for that reason.
I’ve seen fashion advice recommending that, as a man, I should find the right sweater. And I see a lot of guys at the office wearing them.
The thing is, whenever I see a guy wearing a sweater, it says one thing to me: harmless. It’s like a “tame” flag. It’s the male equivalent of a baggy, shapeless dress. It frumpifies.
Is it just me? Do other people see them differently?
Ladies? Are men in sweaters sexy?
