What thin merino roll neck did you get?

+1 for North Sea Clothing. Very nice, thick traditional sweaters.

I went looking for a heavy Naval sweater and did not find one I liked but did come across a thin merino one which I started to wear with smart casual at Christmas. I liked it so much I bought a couple more. I wonder why the roll neck with sports jacket (as Bullitt) ever went out of fashion.

 

They didn't go out of fashion. Some of us more savvy cats have been wearing them since the late '60s. I think I have as many turtlenecks as I do collared shirts. I may even have a dickey or two around.

 

I do consider a roll neck different than a turtleneck. To me the roll neck is a mock turtleneck where the collar is permanently rolled back halfway - it can't be unrolled or rolled down further.

I was looking for them everywhere a couple of years ago and they were more difficult to find, but I did manage to locate some. This past season, I was tripping all over them everywhere.

The sweater? An old Façonnable. (Jacket is Caruso.)

well both are gorgeous...but the last few turtlenecks ive tried just dont fit well. too thin, too thick, too short in the body, too wode of arms, etc. this looks spot on. well done.

Not sure why you guys are having trouble - everyone makes turtlenecks. On the cheap cashmere end Uniqlo has every colour under the sun every F/W.

 

By the way, don't discount the black turtleneck. It has legitimate roots in the beat stereotype.

I've had great luck with RLPL cashmere turtlenecks. But I've gotten them at the RL sample sales, so I haven't paid $1K for them. I'm not sure of the vintage or your size, so this might be old-school baggy or not fit you, but there is one at $100 (so far) on ebay:

I also have some from Daniele Fiesoli and Fedeli that have a good fit.

 

Yoox seems to have a lot of them

This is a pretty good deal (Fedeli runs a touch small):

Beware confusion! isn't it simply that roll-neck = UK usage, turtle-neck = USA usage?

It's actually too roomy smile.gif, but okay under a jacket. The fit of the Bogioli and the SNS (in the first pic of the thread) is a lot better.

My first association is French existentialists, but I'm not sure they even wore them...
