The knit turtleneck Steve Jobs is back on the market!
The fashion designer Issey Miyake has decided to put on the market the iconic mesh polo necks so beloved by Steve Jobs.
As reported by Bloomberg, the shirt will be available from July at a price of $ 270. This is the same model so beloved by Steve Jobs and by him used in almost all public appearances of the last few years. The new jersey turtleneck is called Semi-Dull T and has only some small difference with the original model.
Miyake had stopped producing this jersey turtleneck in 2011, immediately after the death of Steve Jobs. As explained in his official biography, Jobs decided to wear this type of shirt during a trip to Japan in the ’80s. While he was there, He asked the president of Sony, Akio Morita, why everyone in the factory, they wore uniforms, and the answer was “To create a sense of camaraderie among the colleagues“. Jobs loved those uniforms, but did not succeed in convincing the other Apple executives to adopt a solution of this type in the company. However, during the design phase of the idea, Jobs had become good friends with Miyake and asked to create a uniform for the company. They were created ten t-shirts black Jobs adopted it as his “uniform, not the official” on his return to Apple in the ’90s. Since then, this t-shirt turtleneck has remained her... uniform!
