    • 2009 March 15, Geoffrey Wolff, “Suburban Suffering”, in New York Times[1]:
      For a writer celebrated for his control of his characters’ inner lives, for a husband and father notoriously prickly about his expression of the suburban proprieties — the crewneck Shetland sweater and khakis, the plummy faux-Brahmin accent, the adoring Labrador at his feet, the woodpile neatly stacked and grass hand-scythed — here was scandal in full spate, sludge flooding over his family and friends.
  2. (by extension) A shirt, sweater, or similar garment with such a neckline.
