    Where does someone with a scrawny neck and (relatively) long arms shop for turtlenecks?

    Well, because knit fabric both stretches and contracts I suspect that you are overthinking about your neck. As to long arms? I'm built along the lines of a gibbon but always manage to find comfortable turtlenecks at Lands End (for cotton) and BB for more expensive fabrics. I'm going to give JCrew a try after the first of the month.

    Now if you're extremely picky and unconcerned about cost, I'm sure that there is a knitting mill somewhere that can custom make you some. However, being relatively easy to please (being hard to please only gets you pleased less often) I find most commercial turtlenecks just fine.

    I'll need to wear something warm Friday. It's supposed to rain with snow showers. I'll likely go with matching grey turtleneck and flannel trousers under a 1x6 DB blazer.

    Saturday I will be wearing a navy turtleneck, gray slacks and a camel-hair jacket with leather-covered buttons, and Bass Weejuns.
