While awaiting the cravat revival so confidently foretold in my epoch-making post, Cravat News, I have adopted as my habitual winter leisurewear the polo neck sweater (cotton, silk or cashmere are all acceptable). Very fine the polo neck looks too, imho, with its range of connotations stretching all the way from John Mills in Above Us The Waves to beatniks in smoky dives - there's resonance for you (and it improves posture, too, encouraging the straight neck and the head held high). It seems to me an excellent option for the mature gentleman who wishes, for whatever reason, to keep his neck decently covered. On the other hand, I may be making a complete arse of myself.
