TURTLENECK SEASON TIPS

As the fall comes to a conclusion and the skies become more grey and for some white, our attire has to mimic this change in season. For men keeping it simple is always a good idea.  As you bundle up and dive head first into cuffing season we went ahead and assembled some turtleneck looks that you should consider.

Turtleneck-like garments have been worn for hundreds of years, dating at least to the 15th century. From the late 19th century on, they were commonly worn by menial workers, athletes, sailors and naval officers. Historically (and controversially) the turtleneck sweater has also acted as a substitute to the traditional and dominant shirt and tie look. In many ways it was seen as the “anti-tie”, a simple and smart form of dress for those who rejected traditional formal wear. Now the look is seen on many popular athletes and entertainers.

As I was combing through Instagram the other day, I realized how often men use a solid colored turtleneck to complete a look. In my opinion, it’s an essential wardrobe item because it can be layered and used in so many ways. If you’re a little apprehensive about trying one, start with one that is thin, fitted, neutral in color and easy . Have a look at some styles we compiled to help you through this season.
