While some trends come and go, basics always remain the same, and not many are more necessary than the v-neck jumper. A timeless wardrobe must-have, the v-neck is the safest bet of them all.



Founded in 1893, a brand with a heritage as deep as Dunhill rightfully earns a place in any conversation when it comes to the timeless v-neck sweater. Their Midweight Merino V-neck (£265) is an ideal piece for layering, crafted from Merino wool. It’s pricey, but luxurious enough to justify the cost.

John Smedley is the oldest knitwear manufacturer in the world, crafting high quality garments that are designed to last, and made in Britain. The Bobby In Midnight (£155) is a classic v-neck jumper, once again composed of Merino wool. Wear it with a smart shirt for a sharp look, or even a t-shirt for more of a casual feel.



Already massive in Japan, Uniqlo is one of the biggest up and coming retailers worldwide today. With easily accessible prices, clean designs and good quality materials, it’s not hard to see why. This Lambswool V-Neck Sweater (£20) has a chunkier design sure to keep you warm throughout the winter months, with an updated design giving a sleeker silhouette.
