RollNeckNShirt

I did take away one other useful thing from Pitti’s street shots: the rollneck is back and it’s about time I say. I love a good, chunky, wool rollneck sweater in winter (especially standing in sub-freezing air at school whilst watching my daughter parade her Colorado Fifty Nifty State Hat…), but the high neck has always bothered my skin. Cashmere, alpaca, Angora, merino, you name it, it bugs me. If I’ve shaved, it irritates. If I haven’t it catches on my beard and tears up the sweater.

I used to wear a silk roll neck under the woolen one; but I only have one of those, and the two rollnecks can get a bit constricting. Then I tried a silk neckerchief, but the knot necessary to hold it in place was equally uncomfortable. Enter this year’s Pitti-able solution. The most comfortable way to deploy the rollneck yet — over a shirt with its collar popped (this one is brown corduroy.) Warm, functional and interesting. Tomorrow, grey Aran knit over a camel colored chamois shirt.

Stick your neck out a bit this winter and pop your collar under a rollneck.

    I have the same problem, I really love rollnecks and I think I still have a few somewhere, but ultimately they irritated me too much to ever become a wardrobe staple. I did see that photo from Pitti, but I was a bit unsure about it. Now I think I’ll have to give it a try!
