Pocket sweaters are a subtle variation to the classic crewneck sweater
. Pocket sweaters are distinguished from crew sweaters by a small pocket on the chest. Similar to pocket tees
, the pocket originally had a practical use, but is now purely decorative. Even though it might seem just a small detail, it can add a whole different look to a sweater and makes endless variations possible. A tonal pocket lends a subtle look to a sweater, while contrasting or printed pockets make your sweater stand out. As the godfather of work wear, Carhartt
more or less invented the pocket sweater. Carhartt offers a wide array of pocket sweaters with tonal, printed and contrasting embellishments on the chest. Obey
also offers a wide variety of pocket sweaters, that can best be described as clean and basic. Pocket sweaters from Volcom
have a distinctive look, because the pocket is placed on the right side instead of the traditional left side. Besides aforementioned brands, Revert 95 offers pocket sweaters from brands like Undefeated, Diamond Supply, and Private.
