Wear a turtleneck and a matching suit

SG says: Our fellow Brian Sakawa Hesspoke style We know the power of the turtleneck and suit combination. Gold accessories look great with dark brown suits and dark turtlenecks (one thing Team SG doesn’t recommend is wearing gold chains on turtlenecks).

The overall effect is subtle and never feels boring in the slightest.

  • The thinner the knit, the easier it is to add as a smooth layer with a blazer, leather jacket, or woolen topcoat.
  • Dark colors such as black, blue, gray and burgundy are suitable for autumn and winter looks. A black suit with a black turtleneck looks pretty bold, but if you pair a navy suit with a slightly lighter blue turtleneck, it will look timeless and stylish.
  • One (and subjective) pitfall of turtlenecks is the work of actually wearing them. So remember to style your hair only after wearing the sweater.
  • Opt for a double-breasted jacket to take sophistication to the next level. When dressing up this style, it is important that the neck is evenly folded and flat.

As EsquireJonathan Evans of put it“No pocket squares. No ties (obviously). No extraneous accessories of any kind, in fact, because with just a sweater and a suit, you can express yourself.”

Something like a three-piece suit might be a little tight with a turtleneck, but this is a great way to wear a turtleneck and suit combo in a more formal setting such as a wedding.
