If you're undecided on this because you feel the knit is too big, I'd say reconsider. I think it looks great the way it is, in my opinion that's the ideal "oversized" look. The sleeves are a bit on the long side but even the way its folded on your arms seems good to me. You could probably give the sleeve a roll too to help that out. I think if you sized down, it might be better in the sleeves, but you might be pushing it on the shoulders and chest. What size do you wear in SS shirts in general?
It's funny b/c we're almost similar dimensions except you have about 5-8 lbs on me and I was considering the cardigan version of this in a IV, but since I'm a tad smaller, a size down might be better suited for my build.

I would really like to see someone brutally sizing down for a slim fit, if its even possible. That being said, it looks fine and if you like the fit you should definitly keep it.
I really think it depends. The way it ultimately works on the individual's ultimately decides that. Sometimes they can be too oversized in design for say a smaller frame like myself, but not for someone who may take my same size, but have a slightly bigger/broader build. For instance, I like the fit of the sweater on Feji. If he sized down, I don't think it would look as nice.

I've considered doing the same, but I think it would be too big for me for that too. That knit seems to be sized (and the same material and year) as the Author Cardigan that I had to part with for being just too big. It still pains me to this day. If this knit was a size III, I would already to be wearing it, despite being summer, it's that good.
