The history behind the turtleneck is that English polo players first wore turtlenecks in the 1860s and originally called them polo necks. By the 1900's they were popular as a fashion item, as the Gibson girl look wore high, ruffled necked blouses. Their adoption by the middle-class fashion set in the 1920's made them a trend and I think the rest is history.
