Chris Evans In A Sweater: The Sweater Game Is Afoot In Knives Out

Sharing is caring!

Chris Evans in a sweater is one of my favorite Chris Evans. I mean, the guy knows his way around some knitwear, something Rian Johnson used to max effect in Knives Out. Oh sure, the movie is really good too and you can read the Knives Out review– and honestly, there are other sweaters in this movie that do their job. They are all stars. But Chris Evans sweater game was truly on point. And that deserves to be celebrated across the internet. Here’s the receipts and where you can find the Knives Out sweaters (or close knock-offs!). Affiliate links included in this post.

See Knives Out This Thanksgiving For The Sweaters

Knives Out, a whodunnit murder mystery opening on Thanksgiving, has a clear breakout star.

Which, in a star-studded cast, was probably not easy to pull off considering how many fabulous actors are in this film: Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Katherine Langford, Ana de Armas, Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer… !

Winning this movie and stealing every scene: Chris Evans’ sweaters. That’s right: the sweaters.

Evans was great, as always, but the sweaters?

*chef’s kiss*!

And it’s all people are talking about after seeing the film.

Mostly because we can talk about the sweaters Chris Evans wears without giving away any Knives Out Spoilers. And we’re trying to be cool and respectful so you can enjoy the movie too. 

Cause I can’t stop talking about this film. I’ve seen it twice already and I’m buying tickets again next week because I’m a wee bit obsessed with the whole dang thing right now. 

PS: on the subject of Chris Evans in a sweater: my love is nothing new. I’ve been a fan since I discovered how nicely he wears them in 2015 at the D23 Expo. See also: when my inner fangirl first came out. This content was bound to happen at some point and I thank Rian for giving me such a treasure trove of riches.

So without further ado, the cast of Knives Out, including Chris Evans, in sweaters collection to make your holiday week merry and bright. 

I’ve included some Amazon affiliate shopping links in case you need to pull off these Knives Out sweater looks. 

TL:DR version: How do you buy Chris Evans sweater in Knives Out? Here’s the Amazon link.

Knives Out: So Many Sweaters! What Does It Mean?!

I’m not a fashionista so this isn’t the normal post from me. But I am observant when it comes to costumes in films.

And this was something that jumped out to me since we are in the midst of sweater weather over here, and I’ll confess, I’m shopping some of these looks myself. 

Side note: It’s a pity Daniel Craig didn’t find himself wearing something blue and, let’s say, cashmere? But I’m sure Rian can make that up to us with a sequel. 

Because we need more Benoit Blanc. Hint, hint, Rian.

There are a lot of great knitwear options in Knives Out with almost every cast member sporting a sweater at some point in the movie.

What does that mean?!

That the old house was drafty and cold? That Harlan Thrombey was a cheapskate at heart and wouldn’t pump up the furnace? That the costume designer got a killer deal on the knitwear? 

No one knows, but we’re super grateful. 

We got a lot of great sweaters looks out of it, so I’m not complaining. (Except a little about Daniel Craig as noted above. Ahem.)

How Many Sweaters Were In Knives Out?

31. That’s right, THIRTY-ONE sweaters (by my count) made an appearance on the cast of Knives Out.

What? You don’t sit in a dark theater marking down how many sweaters you see on screen? Weirdos. 

Anywho, some 2nd tier faves include:

Half-zip sweaters were Don Johnson’s signature sweater in Knives Out. Totally Lands End material here. The blue one he wears? Don Johnson should ONLY wear blue.  Also: Yes, THAT Don Johnson. I kinda missed him, tbh. Photo: Lionsgate


knives-out-Marta - Character Poster

Marta has some of the prettiest and most comfortable looking knitwear of the group. Loved this lilac on her and that scarf! ZOMG need! Photo: Lionsgate


knives-out-Walt - Character Poster

Walt is the only argyle-loving family member, which is a shame because this look is so classic. Need more argyle, Rian!  Photo: Lionsgate


Meg and Marta Sweaters in Knives Out

Even better news?

There are three solid sweater looks in Knives Out that Chris Evans absolutely rocks. And they all get plenty of screentime, thanks to our benefactor of Evans in Sweaters, Rian Johnson. 

Here are the three sweater looks from Chris Evans from Knives Out that should convince you to head to the theater this weekend.

Ahhh… THE sweater. The one most people are talking about on Twitter. How do you buy Chris Evans sweater in Knives Out? Here’s the Amazon link. You’ll have to fray your own collar and add a well-placed hole if you want to make it matchy matchy, however. Photo: Lionsgate

Did I really just write 1100 words about Chris Evans in a sweater? I did. 

Did you really just read them all? You did. 

And this is why the internet was invented, people. You’re welcome and may your week be blessed with Chris Evans’ knitwear daily!

One last recommendation: after you’ve seen the movie, check out the Knives Out Spoilers Without Context– you won’t know, until you go! But these are a lot of fun to check out when you get back.
