I think we are. In menswear at least. In womenswear to a lesser extent, although I have noticed some great textured turtlenecks with slightly lower collars than the one pictures, which I really quite like, in the streets of London.
That was me back in the ’70s when I still had hair! I love this look not so much because it’s retro but it’s a great look and this guy pulls it off well. I’ll always be a long hair, beard fan. I don’t wear turtlenecks anymore but love this one! Peace!
Definitely a trend I’ve been wondering about. My friend and I discussed this a while ago and decided that perhaps faux turtlenecks (i.e. shorter turtlenecks) are the more subtle way to incorporate this look into a modern man’s outfit.
I have to say that I’ve never seen a mock-turtleneck look really good on anyone. I think the turtleneck is one of those looks that you have to either fully commit to or skip completely… to my eye, at least, there’s no feasible in-between.
