Turtle Power

Turtlenecks are trending right now. TheStyleBlogger recently had a great spread on them and GQ featured a turtleneck montage from the runways in Europe.
I personally am not a fan of turtlenecks because I feel like I end up looking like this. 
That’s not to say it can’t be done, and done well. Check out TheStyleBlogger’s piece here.
"America's Best Dressed Real Man"
The first thing to note is that this isn’t a look you can pull off using a vintage piece. Designers are refurbishing the turtleneck to fit better in a multitude of fabrics like fine gauge, merino, and cashmere. If a turtleneck is your thing, update your wardrobe and donate all those old ones you wore shoveling your driveway. A turtleneck is a type of sweater, and should be worn and styled as such. If it looks like a piece of long underwear, get rid of it. 
Uniqlo has a good selection of turtlenecks at reasonable prices. In fact, Uniqlo itself is a solid store for guys who want to upgrade their wardrobe but don’t have the disposable income to splurge on truly high-end pieces. Uniqlo is like a trendier version of the Gap. Unfortunately they don’t have a store nearby (unless you’re in NYC), but you can order online. Check it out next time you’re on a shopping spree.
More news as it develops,
