There's something undeniably sexy about a man in a jumper.
While suits hold a certain groomed yet aloof je ne sais quoi, knits are more rugged and down-to-earth in their appeal. A man in a sweater nails that "come join me by the fire with a bottle of red and we'll see where this night goes" vibe in a way that no amount of preening could achieve.
David Beckham's latest snaps for his bodywear range at H&M are a case in point. Sure, the undie pics are nice but that shot of him in a soft, sweater-style top is what brings home the bacon for us. It makes him sultry yet approachable, with a healthy dose of facial hair and tatts lending the final flourish to what is a frankly brilliant look.
So in the name of men and sweaters everywhere (and of course, some serious sartorial research), come enjoy these photos of our favourite celebrity men in their most alluring knitwear.
