It is warm. It was down in the forties here last night. I had my w+h shawl on, and felt warn (though... I'd just hit the gym though, so that may have also contributed.)
After a wash, the shawl shrinks down just a smidge (washed it last night as well). In any case, a sweater like that would look wierd if it were too tight, imho. Fitted, yes, tight, no. Look at old pictures of McQueen (and that man wore his stuff fitted) or Brando in shawl collars, and you'll see what I mean. I think that you got the right size.
