NOT-QUITE-WHITE ISN’ T JUST ABOUT COLOUR. IT’ S A MAT­TER OF TEX­TURE, TOO.

Esquire (Singapore) - - Style -

1. Waf­fle knit: hard to find in a sweat­shirt, but worth the hunt for a killer vin­tage look.

2. Pre­washed: you don’t want to look too pris­tine, so find a shirt that’s al­ready been through the ringer.

3. Ca­ble knit: it’s not just for win­ter.

4. Slub: nat­u­ral vari­a­tions in the thick­ness of the yarn lead to lumpy bits called slubs. They lend jack­ets an or­ganic, im­per­fect look.

5. Piqué: a loose knit that lets air cir­cu­late bet­ter than tighter, flatter weaves.

6. Crum­pled: a cot­ton blazer with some pucker hits the right re­laxed note.
