Dear readers,

whether known as a roll neck (UK), turtle neck (US) or skivvy (Australia), fashion’s latest hero piece has finally shaken off its Geography teacher connotations to become a sophisticated modern must-own. Despite going through a rough patch in recent years, men have at last learned, when worn right, the roll neck can be the perfect way to dress up denim or act as a relaxed substitute for a shirt and tie. Soft, comfortable and with a touch of the seventies about it, the roll neck is a menswear classic that almost every gent should try at least once in his life.

It allows you to do without the scarf and classic version does not have buttons or, in this and are more uncomfortable to wear over their close cousins ​​with zip or buttons, such as the famous cardigan, which was designed by a British general in order not to muss the crown.

It ‘made of various fabrics and knitwear resists across the seasonal trend fashionistas. Is popular with singles all over the world and from people on the trip; the reason? Its practicality, but mainly because it’s not iron – remarkable point in its favor.

David Saddler…ritorno al futuro

Cari lettori,
navigando in rete in questa calda estate, tra tuffi veri e quelli nella memoria ho trovato un nome che ha subito riportato alla mente la mia adolescenza quando ancora “acerbo” muovevo i primi passi tra l’abbinamento di una giacca e la scelta di una scarpa, o quando al compimento dei 18 anni consumai la mia prima, vera “missione” da gentleman…trovare l’abito per festeggiare l’entrata nella maggiore età.
