The Best Men’s Cashmere Clothing in Summer 2022


What is it about cashmere that immediately makes us think of the most luxurious warmth known to man? Pure cashmere is one of the softest and rarest fibers in the world, hence its opulent status and comparable price tag. Cashmere is generally sourced from goats in places like Inner Mongolia and Italy where harsh climates have helped to develop super warm wool. Before purchasing a cashmere product, consider its feel, finish, and appearance: it should be pillowy, even-finished, and have a subtle sheen. From updated and upgraded sweaters to accessories to keep you toasty from your top to your toes, we’ve selected ten must-have cashmere clothing pieces for men to keep you warm all summer long.

Here’s what you’ll actually want to wear for the rest of the summer
Men's summer fashion trends to follow this season

Men's summer fashion is an ever-changing animal that is difficult to keep up with if you're not paying attention. While it seems that men's fashion moves much slower than women's fashion, the truth is that it moves just as fast, but with smaller movements of the needle. As the seasons change, there are certain trends and items that we love to wear. This is a collection of the best garments you can use to put together the best summer looks for the rest of the season.

Summer colors
This summer’s palette remains somewhat muted and neutral, often taking cues from nature, with bright pops of color enlivening earth tones. White, taupe, black, and navy are our key foundation hues, but a "fall for spring" story means we’re seeing traditionally autumnal colors like olive, brown, and rust, working their way into our shorts, T-shirts, and swimsuits. Those are further bolstered with clear shots of green, aqua, and bold red, as well as bright yellow and orange. Pantone may have expressed it best with its color(s) of the year: Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating.
The return of Y2K
As the fashion world goes around in circles, the styles of the times cycle back to be relevant once again. So break out those looser fit shirts and pants; skinny is out. There are many looks that are going to look familiar if you are of a certain age to have experienced these the first time around.

If you’ve been anywhere near a radio in the past few years, chances are you’ve heard Lizzo’s upbeat anthems focusing on body diversity and positivity, and it’s not just for the ladies. The same agency that represents most Victoria’s Secret models launched Brawn, its division of plus-size male models including breakout star Zach Miko. We’re increasingly seeing bigger and taller male role models kill it in Fenty by Rihanna shows and on our Instagram feeds. Thankfully, brands are catering to the more-to-love community, too, with tons of stylish clothes for big guys.

Today’s consumer is more fashion and societally conscious, and consequently more demanding than ever before. There has never been a better time to shop for men’s clothing online than right now.
