This is why you try things on before you buy them.
Also, if you're taking in BR sweaters, you should be spending money elsewhere.
Suggested steps for RTW shopping:
1 - find something you like
2 - try it on
3 - decide if it fits
if yes, proceed to step 5
if no, proceed to step 4
4 - put it back, return to step 1
5 - purchase and enjoy
The body of the sweater is what matters there, not the neck. Banana republic pretends to be hip and stylish, but most of their stuff has the same crappy, overly generous cut designed to ensure their clothes fit fat people pretending they can still fit into a medium that a lot of mall brands suffer from.
Thanks for the help. So where would you guys recommend I get some slim fitting sweaters from ? I'm in still in college and I can't afford to spend more than 40-50 on a sweater
