Style on Trial: Cowl necks for men

River Island grey laddered cowl neckWhat do you think of cowl neck sweaters for men?  We love a man in a polo neck or a v neck, or even a classic crew neck for that matter.  We weren’t even aware cowl necks for men existed in the real world (undoubtedly Mark from Ugly Betty will have worn one at some point) until we spotted a couple of options whilst browsing the men’s collection at River Island.  The image above is one example.  We can’t think that we have ever seen a man on the street in a cowl neck and we are not sure we like the idea very much.

But what do you think?  Are cowl necks the next big thing in menswear?  Or is this a style that should be reserved for women’s sweaters only?  You decide.  If you (or your man) likes the sweater above it can be purchased here for £34.99.
