Sweater of Choice: The Merino Wool Turtleneck

Speaking of trends that are here to stay, the turtleneck is one of my favorites during the fall/winter season. Serving as an item made for the sole purpose of producing physical ease, warmth, and relaxation, the clothing item is a great replacement for a crew neck sweater or shirt of any kind. 

Like any menswear essential worthy of investment, the turtleneck is multifaceted. Reference the merino wool turtleneck for a well rounded option - light, and versatile. As easy as it is to slip on, it is just as easy to transition from casual to formal wear. Style it under a heavy coat or casual jacket like I have done above. Incorporating the piece into suiting is also a great look and a more pleasingly graceful option.
