Sweater Guys: Why I Wear What I Wear

Chris Craymer

Meet three New York City Renaissance men—and three sweaters that are just as multipurpose.

Phil Winser

Co-owner of the Fat Radish, East Pole, and Leadbelly restaurants, Winser is eyeing a move into the hotel business. “This Gucci sweater is like something Gary Cooper would have worn,” the 31-year-old says. “I need something for my day that goes from sporty to a little glamorous. Meaning, I run around a lot.”

Nick Voulgaris III

The 41-year-old owner of Long Island’s Kerber’s Farm is also the author of Hinckley Yachts: An American Icon. “My day is mostly outside. Stefano Ricci makes these ultrathin sweaters with every conceivable neckline that are perfect for early fall or layering under heavier pieces in the dead of winter.”

“This is the best turtleneck. Cucinellis have a great slim fit and work on their own or under a blazer,” says the 48-year-old model and At Large magazine contributing editor. (He is also a special contributor to this publication.) “And the shade seems to work nicely with my increasingly gray hair.”
