The Best Men’s Turtlenecks to Wear in Winter

When it comes to looking stylish and staying warm as we delve into colder months, nothing beats the turtleneck. What used to be a uniform for 19th-century polo players has turned into a modern menswear staple. Whether you plan to layer a lightweight version or rock a sturdier knit on its own, turtlenecks instantly add an element of sophistication to any outfit. These sweaters from our favorite men’s clothing brands are versatile enough to style with jeans or your favorite suit, keeping you protected from the elements all the while. Plus, they’re a sleek and easy look to throw on during your video conference calls. We’ve made it easy by hand-picking the best of turtlenecks in prints, stripes, solids, merinos, and cashmere to get you through this winter.
