Additionally, these winter jumpers cover both ends of the budget spectrum.

Spending more will be an indulging treat, although, a bargain buy does not skimp out on quality.

With this, here are the 15 best winter jumpers to keep you trendy, polished and snug.

Benedict Raven Soho Roll Neck

15 Best Winter Jumpers for Desi Men

Although men love turtlenecks during winter, and rightly so, the roll neck is becoming the foundation of many outfits.

Turtlenecks are sometimes too fitted around the neck, whereas roll neck jumpers are slightly thinner, so are more breathable.

This specific piece from Benedict Raven is spun from merino wool yarn, making it lightweight and ultra-soft but it remains insulated.

Ready to be dressed up or down, this humble garment can be worn underneath denim jackets for a catch up with friends.

Or, wear this winter jumper as part of a suit, replacing the shirt for a formal dinner ensemble with a twist.

The cuffs, ribbed neck and hem protect the shape of the jumper whilst the brand’s feather logo adds a burst of elegance.

At £69, men know they’re getting a timeless jumper which is slowly becoming an essential part of men’s winter fashion.

Or zipped slightly down with a white shirt and aquatic tie underneath achieves a refined office look.

The cotton blend helps combat the winter shivers whilst the impressive white detailing adds a tasteful contrast.

This winter jumper is great for men with different styles. Although, the construction of the garment means it can also be worn in the warmer seasons.
