MEN’S TURTLENECKS

Turtlenecks are officially back. You can  dress like man yet manage to stand out from the crowd with turtleneck under a blazer or bomber. Not only turtlenecks are in style right now and they keep you warm when you’re tired of wearing suit and tie or bowtie just throw your turtleneck on. It wasn’t until the 1920s when English playwright Noel Coward — who ironically claims to have worn turtleneck jerseys for comfort — started wearing them that a fashion trend took hold among middle-class Londoners. Nearly 30 years later, across the pond in America, the turtleneck reached its peak in popularity at opposite ends of the societal spectrum: beatniks bought black ones as part of their counterculture commentary; so-called sweater girls showed off their exaggerated bust lines in them; and the preps found them favorable for their neat and tidy appearance. Throughout the following two decades, the turtleneck further evolved as an anti-tie alternative for men and an androgynous, unisex option for women.
