Got Your Turtleneck For Next Week’s “Bullitt” Screening?

There’s a hot ticket in town. It only cost $10 on Event Brite, but now it’s sold out, so who knows what it takes to get in.

The event?

FlipSideSF and the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society are screening “Bullitt” at the Old Mint. If you haven’t seen the film, it stars the turtleneck sweater [UPDATE 12/28: The sweater was just rated the #16 Greatest Sweater of All Time by Urban Daddy’s Kempt mag], with support from Steve McQueen, a 1968 fastback Ford Mustang, and San Francisco. Those four elements culminate in a groundbreaking car chase.

If you were lucky enough to snag a ticket to the event, but still need a black* turtleneck to complete your McQueen ensemble, we have two options:

Wingtip by Johnstons of Elgin cashmere black turtleneck — $425

Left Coast Tee black turtleneck — $25.83 (Part of our on-going Risk/Reward Sale. It will be even less expensive tomorrow, but there’s very limited sizing available).

*Sure, the turtleneck in the movie is actually dark blue, but don’t you always remember it as black? Maybe it’s because of all the B&W stills and graphics. If you can wait till next Fall, we’ll have a navy turtleneck from Luciano Barbera coming…

  • I love the fact that you’re screening. I love, to a higher degree, the fact that Ami was the model for the turtleneck. However, I though McQueen rocked a blue turtleneck for the final scene?
