Agreed - on this sweater/jacket. For the turtleneck I think a sleek fit is TTS. Obviously no layering below the turtlenecks, and I can't imagine wearing much on top of them.

I could not resist diving into the North Sea. I picked up the Expedition Cartigan and am *very* impressed. We shall see how often I have a chance to wear it but it feels truly like a piece of "lifetime" clothing. Considerable money, but considerably well spent if I get sufficient use out of it. I expect I may sell my Dehen 1920 (unworn) as I like the fit of the North Sea better.

I also picked up the Submariner but think I may prefer the Diver due to the drop shoulder on the Sub. The high waist style of these sweaters are an encouragement to stay slim. There's a natural tension here with bitter cold weather being the only time you can wear these, and my fondness for dark beer, braised meats, and scotch by the fire when it's chilly.

Despite having overdone it on "heavy" sweaters (a favorite being an SNS Hering the weighs in at several lbs.), based on my initial purchase I'm a fan of North Sea and offer a hearty endorsement (albeit with no wear time yet).
I second the recommendation. I own two NSC pieces, they're fantastic bits of kit.

Kent Wang’s shawl cardigan is about $200-$215 which is nice and you’re able to request for exact length for the sleeves and torso. Wide range of nice colors. RRL is also nice, very thick and well-constructed, I love it. I’ve seen go for $200~ but colors would be limited.
