    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?

    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. :)

    Yes (Herning). Not this one, but he sells the brand. This one was from a German store: www.hrvst.de.

    Some great stuff in this thread. Someone mentioned lighter colored chunky roll necks. I've been wearing this SNS Herning lately. But not under a jacket. Too warm.

    Oh yeah, I could definitely wear something like that one, for sure. It's the really chunky ones that I don't think I could work into the rest of what I wear. But I don't mind a little variegation. For example, the beige rollneck I got recently is smooth, but has a lot of heathering/marling which gives it a more interesting colour than flat beige. I think the smooth, solid colour ones work better with suits whereas the marled (or in your case, thicker) ones work better with cords/jeans or whatever.

    Nice one, Simplicio.



    Yes, I understand what you mean. Heathering is good! I can't do the really chunky ones either; I think my head would disappear in those :).
