Features And Advantages Of A Mock Neck Shirt

In this article, you will find a mock neck—advantages, features, and differences between a mock-neck shirt and a turtleneck. 

What Is A Mock Neck?

A mock neck or turtleneck is an apparel with a high collar wrapping most of the neck, but the collar does not feature coatings of cloth you can tuck over. This shirt cut is familiar in threaded sweaters, sweatshirts, T-shirts, and long-sleeve shirts. Some mock neck tops correspond to the narrow fit of a classic turtleneck, while others provide the wearer with a more flexible fit. You can wear a mock neck the whole year as an informal and universal garment.

Mock Neck Vs Turtleneck: How Do These Styles Differ?

Though mock necks and turtlenecks share a unique high-neck shape, there are distinctions between these two garment kinds. Here’s how these two styles have a comparison:

Collar style and fit: 

The direct contrast between mock necks and turtlenecks is the type of collar. A mock neck has a flexible-fitting collar with no excess fabric to tuck and style, while all kinds of turtlenecks are characteristic of the signature turn-over neckline that fits close around the neck.

Fabric content:

Both mock neck and turtleneck shirts come in many textiles and materials. Knit turtlenecks usually go in their cashmere, lambs wool, or synthetic fabrics. However, turtlenecks also come in fleece or cotton. Likewise, mock neck shirts arrive in cotton, jersey, or other materials. Knit combinations often go in their fabrics with a narrower weave than turtlenecks, allowing for either a flexible drape or a tight-fitting ribbed knit type.


Mock neck and turtleneck tops are universal and adjustable for year-round clothing, depending on the material and cut. Turtleneck tops are a famous option for chilly weather because the fabric near the neck provides additional warmth, though there are sleeveless turtleneck tops for superheated weather. Mock necks come in multiple cuts; you can wear mock-neck T-shirts in the summer with slim-fit jeans or pair a mock-neck wool sweater with leggings in the autumn.

What Are The Advantages Of A Mock Neck? 

  1. That more high neckline frames the face, which is usually fine. It’s certainly the reason a roll-neck is complimenting many men. 
  2. The advantage of the mock neck is that it can be more comfortable. 
  3. You can also wear a shirt collar under a heavier roll neck and avoid that issue without the shirt collar showing through. Or if you are in the mood to show off, you can convert the shirt collar and have the points attached out the top of the roll neck, wing-collar style. 
  4. The other pleasant thing about a mock neck is warmth, which protects the channel better. And that’s why it is famous in practical clothing, from wet suits to bottom layers. 
  5. It’s also how I see the mock neck best styled- under an over shirt or similarly relaxed outer layer. 
  6. Moreover, if the mock neck is styled as a bottom layer, you would like a fine knit, not the traditional sweater weights various brands present. 
  7. These are the reasons to prefer a mock neck; they are extraordinary and attractive.
