Roll-Down Window: A Look at Turtleneck Sweaters

Turtleneck Sweaters
As co-founder and CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs was well aware that great-looking design paired with ease and practicality is a sure-fire formula. That said, it’s no surprise that the upper portion of his daily “uniform” was a black turtleneck shirt created by Japanese designer Issey Miyake.

Turtlenecks, a.k.a. polo or roll-down collars, are terrific alternatives to collared shirts (and ties) or crew necks, especially in the winter. They accentuate the face, kill the need for a scarf, can hide shaving accidents or other neck blemishes and have a long history as the go-to top of everyone from rugged sailors and bohemians to cool cats from Steve McQueen to Ernest Hemingway. And they look equally good/just dressy enough worn alone or paired underneath a suit jacket in a classic-yet-updated nod to suave dudes from the 1970s.

Men’s turtlenecks have been off the fashion radar the past few years but designers, brands and style influencers are now spearheading their revival.

Here are some great turtleneck sweater options that are currently available for purchase. Best of all, many of them are already at post-holiday discount prices so you won’t have to shell out a lot….
