An upcoming Fall trend that’s surprising a lot people is the return of the turtleneck. Mostly being utilized as a little pop of color in your wardrobe, I wanted to go a little more subtle for my first time out, especially since the wife absolutely hated the idea of me buying a turtleneck. During our trip to Albany this past weekend I found a terrific one at L.L.Bean for just $19.99.

Available in a variety of colors, the small fits surprisingly well and has a nice weight to it, although the arms are a little baggy. With the sleeves pushed up though (which is how I wear the majority of my shirts) you really can’t notice. And my God is it comfortable! The perfect thing for a brisk Fall day.

It wasn’t until I was about to leave for work this morning that the wife stopped and said: “OK, I’ll admit, I didn’t like the idea of the turtleneck but it’s not as obnoxious as I thought and its looks very nice on you…”
