    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

    http://www.yoox.com/us/men/shoponli...=turtleneck&dept=men&gender=U&page=1&season=E

    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 :), 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...

    the herning looks great. ...ill have to check it out.
    The one i tried that was too roomy even looked nasty under a jacket. probably because it was so thin....yours still looks damn good.

    Yes, but there is that other style that I mentioned - hard rolled halfway down. Wearing one today.

    Impossibly cool.

    Thought I knew a shot of Camus in one, but it was this:

    Wonder what kind of buttons he has on that peacoat?

    And the papa of all turtlenecks:

    The funny thing is: I had to wash the blue Façonnable, and wash it good. After her baby years my daughter never 'gave back her food', but the one time she did, it was all over this cashmere sweater :).

    The Herning is great. The (pure) wool is stretchy, probably because of the weave, so it will 'stick' to your body, but gives you all the room you need.

    I don't do (or aspire to do/look like I do) anything nearly rugged/macho enough to want to wear really chunky/cable turtlenecks and share little aesthetic sympathy with the black turtleneck brand of cool, but I do like more typical turtlenecks. I have a bright red, a burgundy, and just received a great beige one. I've also got a white one on order. They're pretty versatile items.

    But you know my absolute favourite thing about them? Wearing one means one less shirt to iron at the end of the week. [​IMG]

    You'll get there, you'll get there. :) The chunky ones are the best.



    Do you iron the shirts you wear beneath V neck sweaters? I hardly iron shirts in autumn/winter...

    It's my reason for wearing them in winter, too! :D

    Now I just can't find SNS Herning's Tonus. I like it better than their Fishermen's sweater.

    I understand, Holdfast. The blue Boglioli I posted might fall just within your prissy bounds? :) Smooth ones are a bit boring, I think, and you've shown you can handle some texture; in your jackets, for instance, right?


    Get one, Dave. :)
