Thanks to a regrettable stretch of early 90s suiting, the phrase “shawl collar” can call up anxiety in even the most adventurous souls—but it may be time to lower your guard.

Take this heathered Woolrich pullover, for instance. It’s the latest in a recent string of sweaters that are bringing the un-notched flop collar back into circulation. Most importantly, it’s functional. This item will keep your collar warmer than anything this side of a turtleneck, a crucial quality once things get brisk.

As always, job one is to protect your neck.
