  1. I thought Audrey Hepburn pulled off that look pretty well in her first scene in Charade. She pulled off every look pretty well.

    Never have been a fad of turtlenecks. It always reminded me of those guys that put metal coils around their necks. That and Bazooka Joe.

    Is that really a turtleneck? That seems like there’s way too much neck fabric. Like a giraffe neck or something…

      It must have been some 1955 short-lived and not super functional fashion.

        I’m racking my brain trying to figure out a situation where that item would be ideal. To give you an idea of how well my brain is working today, this is what I came up with.

        So you’re stranded on a desert island, and you’re only allowed to bring a few items with you. And you love Coke. And it’s not a desert island. It’s a cold, tundra island. And you have nail polish. Extraordinarily on-point nails. And yet you’re only allowed to bring a few items. And you want to keep your torso, neck, ears, and head warm, while still ensuring that it’s not hard to enjoy your Coca Cola Classic.. Now *this* is the item for you!

        Perfect! Like a turtle with on-point nails!


  4. It looks to me like PPE (personal protective equipment, in this case a turtleneck) trying to keep all those noxious bubbles at bay.
