From Clark Gable to Steve McQueen and many a James Bond, the polo neck is never far from a leading man’s wardrobe but this season the polo neck (AKA the roll neck or turtle neck) is back with a vengeance.

The lightweight roll neck offers itself up as an alternative to a collar and tie should the occasion allow and its chunkier counterpart, the Submariner sweater, is just at home with a slim tailored trouser as it is with jeans.

Style Tip: Streamline your torso beneath a fine knit roll neck sweater with a fitted crew neck t-shirt that’s high in stretch.
