North Sea Clothing makes their things the way I like my things made: simple and good. Their designs are simple reproductions of naval winter sweaters. Like peacoats, these are the classic military-to-civilian clothes for the cold. Heavy and warm. I only wish I lived somewhere where I could wear them.

They cost a bit less than $200 each after currency coversion, which I think is a fair price. If that’s too much, you can try the reproductions at What Price Glory, which are made with re-enactors in mind and run about $70. If your budget allows, though, I think the North Sea versions are worth the extra scratch.
