One of the many things that separates the style-world’s demi-gods from its mere mortals is the effortless confidence with which they can carry off divisive items. And what better way to illustrate this than with the following case study on the rollneck sweater? Of course, we at MR PORTER are big fans of polo necks, which come in particularly handy at this time of year for fending of the cold with a modicum of sleek style. But we also realise they can be rather unforgiving on less-than-washboard physiques, and aren’t right for every situation. In fact, it takes a certain amount of discretion and taste (as well as a conscientious choice of accompanying items) to get the whole thing right. Luckily, the following men have both in abundance – scroll down, and take some rollneck cues from them.
