Sounds easy to find, but after asking friends where they get theirs I’ve realized that a white cotton turtleneck can be elusive. Everyone responded to my query with “when you find it, let me know.” I grew up in Boston and all the WASPy toggery shops carried this preppy staple in every color imaginable. But today, not so much. The Hermès above is beautiful and could be worn alone. Others just need to peek out of the neck of a sweater, or even under a button-down. The search is on for this versatile layering piece.
