I was going to try to answer this, but I can't seem to put it into the right words. Could someone explain it well or find pictures of something?

Ok, a polo neck has a collar similar to a dress shirt, a cowl neck is a neck hole that is quite wide and is intended to drape somewhat, a turtleneck is a high neck almost chin height that is fairly fitted and roll neck....I'm not quite sure.

Polo neck is a close-fitting high collar
Cowl neck is a loose fitting high collar (draped like on a cowl)
Turtleneck is an American polo neck
Roll neck does what it says on the tin

OED

Thats a polo shirt, different to a polo neck. Thanks for the explanations though.

I assumed that's what you meant, just in sweater form. Glad I could be of some help though...

I've always wanted to know, what is Broderie Anglaise? I know it's something to do with fabric and embroidery, but what is it?

Open embroidery, typically in floral patterns, on fine white cotton or linen.

these are the striped pants in question...
self-belt..means that they come with a belt made of the same fabric...

paperbag waist...means that there is no defined waist on the pant and that they are belted and gathered at the waist...creating a 'paperbag' effect...

what are brits/scots referring to when you say "jersey"

I've always thought it meant sweater, just wanting to confirm

Isn't "jumper" the Brit term for sweater?
