Ask the MB: Turtlenecks

Ask the MB: Turtlenecks
Q: Is the turtleneck completely dead? Are there any exceptions? Is it coming back? I have a bunch -- not sure whether to burn 'em.
--AJ


A: Many may remember 1968 as kind of a downer, with RFK and MLK getting shot, the Tet Offensive, and Nixon's election. However, AJ, for the turtleneck, 1968 defined it as forever cool.

Top: In 1968's Bullitt, Steve McQueen paired a turtleneck with a tweedy blazer and cemented his status as a style icon.

Middle: In 1968 Gary Player paired a turtleneck with 289 at Carnoustie and got his name inscribed on the Claret Jug.

Bottom: In 1968 Newkirk paired a turtleneck with pickpocketing, locksmithing, and card-sharking to defeat Col. Klink and the Third Reich.
