The Crewneck Sweater Enters Sleek Mode

The crewneck sweater — usually — comes with limitations. Too itchy. Too expensive. Too hard to layer. Too easy to lose its shape. Too tedious to dry clean. Worse, the Christmas variety and "winter" prints plaguing storefronts and e-shops everywhere.

Thankfully, technical apparel house Proof is here with a better play. Their new 72-Hour Merino Crewneck is cut from a super-powered blend of merino wool and nylon which delivers extreme softness, temperature regulation, premium shape retention, machine washability, moisture-wicking properties, and odor resistance.

The future favorite is also "printed" in one single piece via a special Shima Seiki knitting machine, which not only produces less material waste but creates a truly seamless design that eliminates irritation. This ain't your grandpop's sweater.

If you're on board with the look, you can add it to your fall/winter rotation right here.
