Black turtleneck blogging
In keeping with this week's "Oh, those wild and wacky Quebec cops" theme, it's time to discuss something that's been bugging Tearfree about Bon Cop, Bad Cop for quite a while. Why oh why does this movie make fun of gorgeous Colm Feore for wearing a black turtleneck?
Tearfree has always been a fan of black turtlenecks on men, and she has certainly never associated them with squaredom. Just the opposite, in fact, as it takes a certain je ne sais quoi, which Colm Feore has definitely got, to pull off a black turtleneck.
Furthermore a quick google-imaging (is this a new expression?) of the black turtleneck would seem to underline the sweater's stylishness.
Now admittedly, the guy in the bottom centre is an exception to the rule in his Fuzziwuzzi knitwear, but fortunately Tearfree has never been exposed to such a site in person.
The only reason Tearfree can possibly fathom for laughing at the turtleneck-clad Colm Feore was that he was wearing his in the middle of summer, which was a tad odd.
Fashion experts? Russell Smith? Please weigh in.
