Back in the day when my mother still had a say over what I wore, I used to dread getting dressed for fear that she would pull out a turtleneck. I hate turtlenecks with a passion. They make me feel like I’m suffocating, ruin my hair, and just look bad in general.

The fashion world doesn’t seem to agree with my sentiments, however, and I guess it’s about time that I jump on the bandwagon. Turtlenecks were seen all over New York Fashion Week, and have been making a comeback with 70s fashion and the release of Inherent Vice. So I’ve taken it upon myself to face my fears for the sake of fashion, and dive head first into the world of turtlenecks. What did I discover? Turtlenecks aren’t all made equal.

See the gallery above for 12 turtlenecks that don’t totally suck, found by the world’s biggest turtleneck hater.
