The black turtleneck. The go-to shirt for fighting crime... or committing them.

Our “Fashion Essentials” segments aren’t exactly rocket science (as you probably already noticed).   Much like this black turtleneck, they are very simple and available in almost every retailer.

Our goal for Fashion Essentials is very simple – if you were to purchase each item suggested in every article, you would have a foundation for a very functional and stylish wardrobe that will last you for a long time.

You can even pair it with a gun holster.

Better yet, each item we select can pretty much mix and match with each other.  For example, the black turtleneck can go with a peacoat, a camel colored overcoat or even a velvet jacket (if you’re feeling a little Bruce Wayne).  Pair it with some aviators and a vintage leather motorcycle jacket to look like the King of Cool.  Pair it with a ski mask and you’re ready to make a withdrawal from your local bank (I’m just sayin’).

For a more modern flare, make sure to get one that is a little fitted, but no matter which style you choose, you can’t go wrong with a simple black turtleneck.

To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
