Tomas Maier’s shrug with turtleneck: like an expensive tea cosy

Tea cosy? Beanie hat with blowhole? Nope, it’s a turtleneck shrug, it’s £585 / $929 at Browns.

Now, we admit we can see the usefulness of such an item, especially if it’s worn under a jacket, in which case it’ll look less like a semi-straight jacket, and more like a practical solution to an exposed neck in winter. Scarves do that too, mind you, and we can pick up a scarf for a whole lot less than £585, so we think we’ll probably be passing on this one, sewn-on sequins or not.

What about you, though? Do you want to add a turtleneck shrug to your winter wardrobe? Do you want to pay almost $1000 for one? If so, go here.

    Oh my good lord. That’s ridiculous.

    I totally thought it was a toque on first glance. 😛 A really strange looking toque.

    I don’t like turtlenecks at the best of times, take the sleeves away and I like it even less. Also, almost a grand for that? I could probably ask my mom to knit me something like it for a few balls of wool, not that I would ask, but still. 😛

    I like it, but not for that price. If paired with a contrasting color, and a black skirt with nice tights, it may look pretty cool.
