As our final gem from Fashion Week, we thought we’d draw your attention to an item getting a lot of attention—the tennis sweater.

Brooks Brothers has a straightforward “anyone for tennis?” version hitting stores in February, but for our money the best one is the cotton/cashmere Billy Reid model shown here. All that collar space provides the perfect stage for all manner of tie/ascot/neckerchief shenanigans—or an unusually handsome collar, as here. Remember, despite appearances, it’s a spring/summer item, so it’s a good deal lighter than it looks—and you’ll have plenty of room to layer.
