You thought it was gone for good. You thought it was reserved for the wardrobes of visionaries and billionaire entrepreneurs. You were wrong.
Michael B. Jordan is using his latest red carpet look as a style statement for men in suits: Turtle necks are cool again. The Creed actor attended the New York premiere of Fahrenheit 451 overnight in a slick midnight navy three-piece suit with the dress shirt portion replaced by a simple black turtle neck.
The result is super clean and minimalist and it works sensationally on Jordan’s bulkier physique. What’s notable is the ease at which men can throw together this look without going broke. There’s no need for fancy ties, pocket squares or tie pins here. Just a conservative timepiece will do along with a pair of polished dress shoes and nicely fitted suit.
If you’re keen to see what a turtle neck looks like on a skinnier frame, Andrew Garfield braved the cold last year in a turtle neck-suit combo to great results.
So is the turtle neck back for good? You bet it is and you needn’t fear it any longer. They start from anywhere between $25 via ASOS and can go all the way up to $2,000 for baller cashmere ones on MR. PORTER.
