    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Mock? I wear them on the course when it's really cold out.

    For "older people" thay cover up a lot.

    Cheers.

    I adore turtlenecks, but I think they made a lot more sense in Europe, back in the years where everyone just sat around freezing their balls off all winter.

    That said, I'm dying to get this thing out again. Hedberg didn't cover the part where you feel so awesome that it's worth feeling kitten-strangled all day.

    Hey, folks, don't generalize your sensory issues to everyone else. Turtlenecks:

    Cashmere makes a difference - it's like being hugged rather than strangled :) No different to a buttoned up collar when you wear a tie and yes, they are awesome.

    No, I thought @justridiculous text was funny, that is all.

    Nice! Your combo today somehow reminds me of the longshoremen in that Brando's movie... On the Waterfront.

    I really like how they look but I can't wear them :(
    I don't have this problem with ties at all... but turtlenecks... don't know... I have tried many times and always end up not using them. The one I almost bought last winter had cashmere in it... felt really soft but in the end I didn't buy it.

    Chu, By "mock", I meant mock turtleneck. That's what I wear to the golf course on cold days.

    Haha, I had to look it up... I think that over here we call that "swan" neck instead of turtleneck... I had a couple of thick shirts like that when I was 16 or 17 that I use when skiing but I am not really comfortable with them either... in fact, I threw them away after a couple of uses if I remember correctly.

    Here is one of the sweaters I try last year (really liked the sweater but I ended up giving it away... too thick/warm for me):

    Turtleneck + shearling bomber looks good!

    Quote:Thanks, I agree. I bought another sweater just like that one but it was beige to wear (both) with that bomber jacket and another green one I have... I could alternate easily on both... but the beige sweater I returned it.

    I looove turtlenecks. It also helps that in my line of work there's a lot of practical reasons to hide my neck (hides any pulse), but I think in general I just like them a lot too. They look so comfy. Probably not the case if you wear overly scratchy ones, I prefer wearing softer ones with scarves when it gets cold.

    I love turtlenecks as well but am always unsure of wearing scarves with them. Though when it gets cold enough out I stop caring as much.

    Why would you need to hide your pulse? Are you some kind of vampire hunter or something?

    You really do live in a bygone era :)

    If you cannot control your physical response, I suspect you can't control your emotional response too well either, which reveals far more to an experienced player.
