Best turtleneck sweaters for men in 2024

It’s a sweater that goes by many names. Known as a turtleneck here in the States and Canada, across the pond in Britain, it's called a polo neck or rollneck. And in Australia? A skivvy. But it's all the same creeping neckline that suddenly gives you leading man energy. There's an understated elegance to this sturdy, textural knit. And that means wearing one right now tells the world, “I know what's up.”

Do you need a little confidence to pull them off? Sure. You can wear them on their own, but they also make such easy work of layering that all you really need to wear them is a jacket—a black denim trucker, a plaid sport coat or even a long overcoat. Pull one on and you'll instantly feel dressed up without feeling overdressed—that's the power they have. And the best part? Designers of every stripe have embraced them, so there are options available at investment-level to wallet-friendly prices. Here are a few of our favorites.

Proper Turtleneck Storage

Storing your turtleneck sweaters correctly can help maintain their shape and quality. Here are some tips:

Fold Instead of Hang
Turtleneck sweaters are best stored folded to prevent stretching. Hanging them can lead to misshaping in the fabric over time.

Use Sweater Bags or Containers
Consider using breathable sweater bags or containers to protect your turtlenecks from dust and pests. Make sure the containers allow for air circulation to help prevent moisture buildup.

Check for Moths
Periodically check your stored sweaters for signs of moths or other pests. Natural moth repellents like cedar blocks or lavender sachets can help deter these insects.

Rotate Clothing
If you have a collection of turtleneck sweaters, consider rotating them to prevent excessive wear on specific items—this can help maintain the longevity of your wardrobe.
