Turtleneck’s Are Still In

Words by Matt Huxley

Formerly reserved for 90s accounting students and librarians, the humble turtleneck has been unfairly loathed more times than Kim K has had plastic surgery.

But thankfully this throwback is no longer in the bad books. The classic black turtleneck (or rollneck if we really want to get fancy) brings both class and sophistication to your wardrobe, along with a snobbish air that we all know I’m digging.

This random piece that I picked up in a discount store in Barcelona is a button sided one, meaning that I can leave it folded back over asymmetrically – gotta love a point of difference. I’ve teamed it with a classic khaki jacket that vaguely resembles a retro upperclass hotel lift boy’s uniform. Black jeans and boots complete my ensemble and I’m totally ready for a day browsing secondhand bookstores.

What do you think of the look? Would you wear it?
