A Brief History

The hard-wearing submariner turtleneck was an essential part of the military issued kit of the Royal Navy during the First and Second World Wars. The trusted mid-layer was durable and snug, which was perfect for keeping out the North Atlantic chill and highly favoured by submariners who were often patrolling the bitter cold waters of the North Sea. 

As with the duffle, trench coats and other navy/military issued clothing, the Submariner jumper quickly trickled into mainstream apparel, becoming a staple for both women and men. It is loved by many and has since evolved into numerous different fashion representation and pieces.
