Classic Turtleneck

No. 1729



GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

“None of That Sissy Stufffor Me. I Just Let My HairGrow Long and Pulled It Througha Turtleneck Sweater.”

-Bill “Pudge” Heffelfinger (1889-91 All-American).

Football in the 1880s.

Helmets? What are those? Padding? Your teammates would laugh you off the field if they caught you with padding under your uniform.

The only protection you had then was a head of long hair (start letting it grow in June) and a thick turtleneck sweater.

That’s all that Yale’s “Pudge” Heffelfinger had when he ran straight toward the point of a deadly Princeton flying wedge, leaped over the blockers, and landed on top of the ball carrier, making a memorable impression.

(At 6’3” and over 200 lbs., he was a giant for his time.)

There’s a sophisticated sort of turtleneck, it’s true, favored by secret agents and Audrey Hepburn, and it’s a fine thing.

But this is the kind of turtleneck that All-Americansreached for.

Classic Turtleneck (No. 1729). Pure lambswool. 3-1/2” high neck (folded down) and 3” cuffs and hem, deeply-ribbed. Raglan sleeves. No fancy stitches, no doodads. In the game for the long haul. Imported.
