Note the flap on the breast pocket, it's like Ralph Lauren does on his Polo coats.
My first thought was it's a regular rounded crew neck that just rumpled a bit to look square, but maybe you're right - hard, for me anyway, to tell. If it's square, that is something I don't remember having seen before.The crew neck has a rectangular front rather than a rounded one. I don't think I have seen a sweater with a neck quite like that.
That felt like an early example of all the collar popping and other silliness (like when we see a shirt-collar's points peeking out of a turtleneck - as we've shown in the Ralph thread) that shows up in modern fashion ads.I like the sweaters, but they need to be careful with those fly-away shirt collars...a careless turn of the head and they could easily cut their own throats! LOL.
Good catch. You are spot on, that is a rectangularly shaped collar. As we know now, that style never took off - thankfully.
Good choice.....and a healthy one as well! However, as I recall my old high school wrestling coach told us "the ladies" would drain us of our precious bodily fluids, reminiscent of the opinion expressed by General Jack Ripper in the movie "Dr. Strangelove." LOL.I would be a pipe smoker but all the ladies in my life have had an aversion to tobacco. And given a choice between a pipe and feminine company . . .
Growing up in the '70s, for lots of jobs - delivery guys, repair guys, taxi-drivers, gas-station attendants, even movie theater ushers - about half the workers still wore uniforms. It wasn't consistent any more, but still, plenty of workers were wearing very military-inspired looking uniforms even into the '80s.Designs that eased the transition from a military uniform to a civilian uniform! Now that's the way civilians should dress....at least some of the time. LOL.
