Quick Overview

Every year, right when spring comes around, the style trends take a drastic turn from overcoats and puffer jackets to light jackets and even lighter knitwear. Specifically for men, this is the best time to show a bit more skin and create your own peek-a-boo moment that doesn’t seem too desperate or obvious.

This year, most of the trending focuses will be on men’s shirts, and, hands down, one men’s shirt trend is sure to be everywhere you look — and that’s knitted shirts.

From polos to wide-collar short sleeve shirts, these knitted styles prove this aesthetic isn’t reserved for fall and winter. Also, there’s a knit shirt out there to fit any personal aesthetic, price point and body type.

To help you hop on the trend and decide which style is best for you, we’ve rounded up the five best knitted men’s shirt styles for this year.

From the super affordable and high-quality Abercrombie & Fitch Textured Johnny Collar Sweater Polo to the pricey but highly detailed Percival Crochet Short Sleeve Shirt, these knitted styles are sure to be one of the best men’s style trends you’ll see in years.

Check out each pick, ranging from brands and retailers like Amazon, Todd Snyder, ASOS and more.

1. Best Sweater Polo: Abercrombie & Fitch Textured Johnny Collar Sweater Polo, $60

This shirt gives off an easy-breezy "day-drinking in the Hamptons" vibe with its luxe sweater-knit fabric and relaxed-fit silhouette.
$60 at Abercrombie & Fitch

Abercrombie & Fitch’s rebrand should be studied — it’s that impressive. The brand that was once known for its frat house-inspired designs now has a much more sophisticated, fully realized, and, dare we say, high-quality aesthetic and this is all shown in its latest men’s pieces.

Specifically, its Textured Johnny Collar Sweater Polo is the perfect example of this shift.

2. Most Affordable: PJ Paul Jones Men's Short Sleeve Knit Polo Shirt With Vintage Spring Lapel, $40.99 - $43.99

This best seller strikes the perfect balance of affordable and quality. Plus, it comes in 15 colors and five sizes.
$41 at Amazon

If you’re looking to spend under $50, over 1,000 Amazon shoppers agree that this PJ Paul Jones Men’s Short Sleeve Knit Polo Shirt is one of the best picks.

The retro contrast stripe pattern makes this one stand out; reviewers can’t stop raving about how well this shirt fits and looks in person. It’s so popular that it has over 1,000 five-star reviews!

It has a very high-end look and feel to it,” one shopper wrote. Another said that it’s “much better quality than I expected” before adding that “the fabric isn’t flimsy.”

3. Most Lightweight: Jack & Jones Premium textured knit shirt in stone, $59.50

It has a classic camp collar (a style that looks great on any body type) and buttons that go from the chest to the waist.
$60 at ASOS

Jack & Jones started as a denim brand in 1990, but it’s since branched out and quickly become one of shoppers’ favorite brands on ASOS.

Its Premium Textured Knit Shirt is one of the most lightweight knit shirts you’ll find, so if you run hot, this is definitely the one to buy.

4. Best-Feeling Fabric: Todd Snyder Full-Placket Double Knit Polo In Studio Green, $248

It has a relaxed, straight fit that's perfect for layering under a light jacket or a cardigan or even open with a tee or tank underneath.
$248 at Todd Snyder

Knitted shirts will have you looking your best, but it’s easy to find one that feels a bit flimsy and thin. This cabana-inspired pick from respected men’s fashion brand Todd Snyder has a double-knit fabrication with a thicker weave. This gives you more coverage and looks more luxurious without making you overheat.

The luxurious Italian fabric is knit from a breezy linen and cotton blend that’s super lightweight and soft.

5. Most Detailed Design: Percival Crochet Short Sleeve Shirt, $270

If you're looking for the absolute best statement-making summer shirt, this one from Percival is a personal favorite.

Though this one's a bit pricey, its quality and craftsmanship make it worthwhile.

The Percival Crochet Short Sleeve Shirt is hand-weaved with a 100% cotton and linen blend. This technique produces a one-of-a-kind design and silhouette that looks so delicate while remaining super durable and long-lasting. You’re sure to get tons of compliments whenever you wear this shirt!
