Contemporary designer men’s turtlenecks span forms both classic and experimental, from post-normcore casual to classically refined, from cleanly silhouetted to oversized and embellished. Rich in subcultural and counter-cultural associations, the turtleneck has long challenged the strict silhouettes of formal dress codes, affecting an easy and aloof aura of sophistication. Originally conceived as a form of protective apparel, the turtleneck has passed through a dizzying spectrum of fashion eras intact, sustained in the social consciousness as utilitarian workwear and elevated by the allegiances of key figures in high and popular cultures. Cast in a range of luxe fabrics, thin and breathable mock neck cotton jersey pieces work through the warmer seasons as standalone pieces, while light merino wool variants work well in moderate climes, or as the base to a layered ensemble. Heavy duty wool pieces lock in warmth for full coverage, affecting après ski and winterized cosmopolitan looks contingent on context.
