    I need a nice, slim-fitting black v-neck sweater, available from an online merchant. I'd like to avoid visible brand logos if possible.

    I wear a Small (34-36) in basically everything, and I'm looking to come in at about $90, shipping included.

    Recommendations?

    I'd also go with the JCrew but the sizing is tricky. I've tried on size smalls and they were too big for me and I'm a bit larger than Goblin (38 chest), but they do offer an XS and I'd go with that option.

    I'd get a J.Crew merino sweater. They are among the most durably sweaters I have. The run nice and slim - you may even be able to get away with a medium. No logos, and in your price range.

    How do the sleeve/body lengths run, in your (or anyone else's) experience? I'm relatively lanky and have what apparently are freakishly long arms, so shirts and sweaters that fit me well in the chest often end up looking like 3/4 sleeve jerseys.

    IME, the sleeves are relatively long on JCrew stuff. I, on the other hand, have shortish arms and they usually are too long for me.

    American Apparel now offers slim cut v-neck sweaters online. I haven't been to their store yet to see if they have it in stock, but it seems pretty nice.

    I'm a big fan of Brooks Brothers sweaters. They fit well and are much higher quality than JCrew and Banana IMO for not much more $$.

    I was passing by the bb at scp and I saw an amazing two tone cardigan. I was in a rush so I couldn't be bothered to scour the mannequin for the tag for fear of appearing to grope it to passers by.

    I'm a size 38ish but am 6', and I find it nearly impossible to find sweaters. Anything that fits right across the chest (usually XS) will be too short in the arms or too short in the body. I have gone 2 winters without purchasing a sweater in hopes that the money I save can eventually be spent on the expensive, but slim fitting designer brands.

    quality's very good but they're huge. i've bought a few sweaters and they're baggy on me. i'm quite slim, almost waifish in fact, so that might explain it, but nonetheless, i'd recommend to size to down to anyone looking for a form fitting sweater.
