The fine knit has become the most versatile piece in our wardrobes replacing the shirt for formality and the T-shirt for seasonal practicality. But there has been a shift, listen up. The only shape which looks right right now is the crew or round neck. The V-neck just looks plain wrong and fuddy-duddy. The V-neck is the knitwear equivalent of the boot-cut jean right now.
The death of the V-neck puts an end to scruffy heavage and focuses more on your face. Opt for strong neutrals such as navy or a marled grey in an easy to wash extra fine merino wool. This should be your new staple and goes with everything. Uniqlo's are great value at under £30 and John Smedley put over 225 years of experience into theirs.
