Well, I'm 6'3, but only 175 so I'm pretty lean. I typically wear a 40, and I have somewhat broad shoulders for my build (thank you, years of competitive swimming as a kid) but I don't have much of a chest.
It feels quite big through the body and is long in the sleeves. I kept "hearing" your post in my head about just going w/ a size and sometimes having it be looser and sometimes more fitted, but this one just feels kinda sloppy to me. It's exacerbated (in my mind anyway) by how thick and chunky the knit is--even more so than Starks, etc (though there are a few of the big cardigans I've not handled).
On the one hand, I don't need to overthink it. On the other, I do care about having things fit in a way that's pleasing to me. Either way, it's suddenly seeming more and more like spring everyday so this piece may just sit for a while anyway...
Makes sense. I am the same weight as you, but 4" shorter. I should probably be 5-10 lbs lighter, but but even so, I probably have a lot more chest and back.
