Many Men's sweaters hanging on hangers
Sweaters are an essential menswear for winters. Almost every one used to wear it in their winter season but very rarely we think about mens sweater style. 
We wear it roughly like we are wearing it just for saving us from cold and nothing else, but we have to think that it is also a men’s wear which can raise your style game if you wear it in a classy way. 
Sweaters are something we’re wearing for 2-3 generations before. It is very essential and useful type of winter wear from those days, till now. 
We all wear it on different types of inner wears and under the different types of over wear. Like in light cold it can be wear on shirts and in severe cold it converts into a inner wear and goes under a jacket or suit. 
So, I will tell you  here the different types of sweater for mens you should must have in your wardrobe and how you can style all these sweaters in their best way of styling. 

Mens Sweater’s revoloution

It is little bit strange like I’m diving in some history types boring part, but it is not. It is not history what I’m talking about it is some essential facts you should know, if you wanted to raise your Sweater’s game. 
Like I says it has been wearing from long time with not a major changes in a men sweaters, there are several changes which takes place in revolution of sweaters. 

Changes in pattern and designs

The first change in sweaters we can identify eaily is in their designs and patterns of the sweaters. 
The sweaters of 19th and 20th century was in different pattern and design which was in trend at that time, and the sweaters of our generation have different pattern and designs which is items that is currently in trending. 
So, the fact is the designs of the sweaters plays a big roll for styling a sweater the popularity of that design or pattern gives us an idea of their styling level. 

Changes in size

The second important and noticable changes brings in modern mens sweater styles compare than old sweater style is in their sizes. 
The sweaters of ancient people’s were lilbit bigger than a perfect size, reason could be that, at that time the tailors were not so active like todays. 
They used to bought a ready made sweaters from market and used to wear it without getting it fit with their body. But in today’s generations the sweaters needs to be perfect fit (except some) according to your body type that is the abstract of that topic. 
A well fit sweaters gonna make your styling level high because it is today’s generations fact. That any menswear if you wanted to show your class with that then it should be perfect fit on your body. 

Sweater’s practical applications 

Changes or you can say it an important part of styling sweater. Practical applications means uses of sweaters the when and where to wear which type of sweater.
 The least changes that takes places in sweaters is in their uses. From the 18th century till now the changes occurs in use of sweaters is also depend on that two changes I had described above. 
So, the fact is you should know well that which type of sweater you should wear on a particular occasion mean, whichever pattern, design, type, colour are their in sweaters are have their own criteria for showing off like as; you can not wear a hooded sweater on a place where formal dresses are essential.
