The roll-neck or polo neck (the terms are interchangeable) has a high, close-fitting neck that is worn folded over – a high neck that doesn’t fold is called a turtleneck – and dates back to the Middle Ages. Traditionally it has been worn casually, though the likes of Sir Noël Coward started the trend of wearing them as a more formal piece in the 1930s. The style was initially considered as an act of defiance against traditional dress code – and caused the head waiters at top restaurants around the world to have heart attacks (or to keep shirts ties in their cloakrooms). The US Esquire columnist and author Mr John Berendt described it “as the boldest of all the affronts to the status quo”. Today, however, it is largely seen as an acceptable and less fussy alternative to the shirt and tie in all but the most formal of occasions. Please Note: All wool products need moth protection; ensure you change your moth protectors in your wardrobe every few months or per box instructions.
