From sailors to beatniks: all the (masculine) nuances of the turtleneck

Despite its name, the turtleneck was yielded way before the famous movie with Marcello Mastroianni. Until the early twentieth century, turtleneck sweaters were worn by sailors and workers who spent many hours exposed to the elements: its high collar protected them from the cold wind without slowing up the movement. Around the 1920s, dolcevita sweater made its appearance in London: its closed collar encountered the appreciation of many young Englishmen that weren't fond of ties and buttons. The turtleneck came back in trend in the Fifties - in total black, with a plain or rib knit - when the Parisian existentialists made it a bohemian icon. Finally, the American beatniks and the counterculture of the Fifties and Sixties added other shades to the intellectual masculine charm of the dolcevita sweater.
