Really interested in picking something ike the lavenham wool quilted jacket. Is there a store in nyc that sells lavenham? Alternative recommendations? Im also really interested in something like a walking/car jacket (less than a 3/4, more like a 5/8).

Or should i just get a peacoat and use that for fall/winter?

Do any of your wear turtlenecks? I never liked the look.

Been looking for a good black tactleneck for a while:

I like to have the occasion turtleneck in the rotation, but there are so many cool sweaters out there, so I have a variety.

I wear turtlenecks. I have about 8 or 9  of them. In colder weather, they are a staple item for me - especially on the weekend and when i forego the scarf.

I like them a lot but can't stand them... haha But I just bought two so I am hoping the cold arrives soon so I can get use to them... but I don't get my hopes up because I am still using linen... :(

 

I too prefer navy over black. I think the only black "thing" I own are two pair of oxford shoes... that is it... not a single piece of clothing in my wardrobe is black. I don't like the color.

I'm with you, Chu. Not a single black thing in my closet except shoes and a pair of braces. I haven't had a turtleneck-anything since the Gap ribbed sweater craze of the early 2000's, which for a while after I would wear to go skiing but that's it. It's really never cold enough here to need it.

I have a pima/supima cotton brooks brothers T neck that I really like. It fits pretty damn well and is super comfy.

 

I basically need to figure out how to get 'cheap' basics (henleys/t-necks/etc) so I can look put together while a student. It's kind of crazy, but I rarely wear jackets anymore. Everything would be so out of place in school. If I had started off wearing them on day one it might have been fine, but it's a bit overkill when all you're doing is sitting in classes.

YMMV if you're in B-school, but med school is hella biz casual so far...

I thought navy would be better than black for a turtleneck, but now that I have both, I find myself reaching for the black more frequently. I hope that the temperature here will someday fall again so that I might be confronted with this decision anew.

The black turtleneck has been such a classic Hollywood image from the 1950s on that I think it’s what many people think of when they think ‘turtleneck’.   It’s also unisex (think Audrey Hepburn, for example), of course.

 

I have a few turtlenecks but they’re definitely cold weather gear for me.  Indeed, they tend to be so warm that they’re pretty much outdoor apparel—too warm for most indoor environments.  If I’m going to be going in and out I’ll usually grab a scarf instead since I can quickly take it off when I go indoors.

 

No doubt about it, though:  it can be a great look under a jacket (odd or suit).

 

Cheers,

Turtlenecks - not to be worn by men with short necks, moobs or even the slightest beer gut.

 

I can't stand the rubbing of the fabric against my neck, so I avoid them.

 

If you have an heroic physique, they can look great.

Ever try cotton or a synthetic blend?
