The Best Fall Archetype: The ‘Sweater Man’

The best of all months (yeah I said it), November, is here! That means it is time to brew some tea, sip some hot cocoa, and swaddle ourselves up in the biggest, chunkiest knitwear we can find while watching our favorite fall movies. 

While we love supernatural autumnal classics like Practical Magic and The Witches of Eastwick that are all about the power of sisterhood and slaying both foes and lewks, it is time to turn our gaze upon one of our most treasured tropes: the sweater man. That’s right. I’m talking about lads in cardigans. The cableknit crew. Yes, a sweaty, glistening, barechested man has his appeal, but it’s fall now! Save those shirtless hunks for June. We love a man who knows how to dress appropriately for the weather! And we love the films that celebrate the changing of the season by parading a slew of well-wrapped men across our screens.
