Men’s retro sweaters, button or zip cardigans and pullovers in novelty prints make up the mod 1960s style. 60s and 70s men’s sweaters (jumpers) had a fit slim on the body with narrow cuffs and collars. Colors were bold and patterns favored colorblock, geometric, and character designs. Contrasting large buttons on cardigan sweaters were popular as well as zip up sweater jackets, shawl collar pullovers and short V-neck sweaters. Chinky knit fisherman sweaters, varsity stripe sweaters, and cable knits also made a comeback. Learn more about vintage men’s sweater history here.
