Turtleneck advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Today I wore faded blue jeans with a black fleece (full zipper, not pullover) over a dark blue turtleneck. The turtleneck was tucked into the jeans. 1. Should I have tucked the turtleneck in? 2. Can I wear a fleece with the collar up around a turtleneck? I don't usually wear turtlenecks, so I'm not sure what is currently accepted. However, I am trying to get used to wearing things close to my neck. It used to bother me to wear neckties and button top buttons, but I'm getting better about it.

I think wearing a fleece jacket over a turtleneck is perfectly fine. I do it when it's cold outside and I need to do something relatively active, something that requires clothes in which I will be able to move about comfortably. Frankly, I find fleece jackets unattractive in the grand scheme of things, so I wear mine in situations where what I look like isn't that important. They are all about comfort and warmth without bulk. So I don't think it's a question of what's accepted or not, it's a question of whether you are comfortable in a combination of a fleece jacket and a turtleneck. All that said, to me a concern about your proposed outfit would be black over dark blue. To me, those colors always clash, with the incomprehensible exception of black shoes with a navy suit. But of course if it's not about the look in the first place, then the black/dark blue combination perhaps doesn't matter either. Regards, Tony Edit: Whether you tuck the turtleneck in or not is again all about which you find more comfortable.
