If you don't already have a hardy cotton turtleneck for the fall, might we suggest the Submariner Sweater from Orvis? Part of their popular US Patent collection, it's knitted in the traditional shaker rib style (in both navy and cream) at a factory in Fall River, Massachusetts—where long-idle clothing manufacturing plants are being revived by brands like the New England Shirt Co. The beauty of a cotton turtleneck, especially this time of year, is that it's warm enough to keep out the crisp autumn air without being overly hot indoors and the yarn is much less itchy on the neck than wool. Wear it on its own or under a tweed blazer and come winter, nothing will look better under a pea coat.
