How to Style a Roll-Neck Sweater | With a Camel Blazer and Jeans

Menswear: Camel blazer, black roll neck and jeans
What I love about styling a roll-neck sweater with a blazer and jeans is the immediate "cool" factor that comes with something your parents wore to a beatnik club all those years ago or Richard Roundtree did with such swagger in Shaft. Roll-necks are the stuff of legend, often mocked as old fashioned... what's wrong with a bit of old fashioned anyway, it's obviously stood the test of time (like denim) and should be adorned whenever an opportunity arises. >>

I really like the blazer / denim look, I think it reflects a very modern take on traditional Sunday best (a British thing?) which essentially had all the men dressing in their finest with a Baker Boy hat thrown in for good measure now and then!

Have you got a fashion accessory that you love to wear but is open to ridicule such as leg warmers or a top hat? I'd love to know...
