RE: Turtle neck for winter?
I think the reason the Cruise pic doesn't look so good is that when you layer, the thickness/bulk/texture is supposed to be sequential. I.e. the inner layer should be thin, the middle layer a little more substantial, and the outer layer the heaviest (or vice versa). Cruise is wearing a thick-thin-thick combination, which looks off. So, if you wear a turtleneck under a button-up, the turtleneck needs to be a really thin material or else the button-up needs to be really thick, like a heavy flannel. A mock neck would probably work in that case, because the mock neck usually looks thin, but you risk getting made fun of because mock necks are supposedly geeky.

I think wearing a well-fitted turtleneck under a regular collared or shawl collared coat, like the guy in the top picture, looks good. It's a very refined, put-together look.

One time I was in the grocery store in the US wearing a blue mock neck (Land's End, I think) under a brown, wool, mock neck, half-zip sweater (LLBean) and a cute, young Asian girl gave me the once over with an inviting smile. I wasn't game aware at the time so I didn't realize it until several minutes later and she was gone.
