Women's Progress Turtleneck
New York Subway strike of the late ’70s. Bank presidents start wearing sneakers to work.
JFK goes hatless at his inauguration. Good-bye, hats.
Steve McQueen, Sean Connery, Bill Holden discard ties in favor of turtlenecks.
Some of it is progress. Now, marooned for a week in Paris or Osaka, this turtleneck sweater will keep you or me well dressed. Relaxed, but just a little dressy. (Both at the same time.) 55% silk, 45% cashmere. Pretty seductive stuff. Warm, but not heavy, not bulky.
Beautifully detailed and finished. Sleek 7" high ribbed turtleneck. Set-in sleeves. 4" ribbed cuffs. Good with blazers, old tweedy jackets, slacks, jeans. People expect to see a Walther PPK strapped over it, so you don’t even need to bother with that.
