I love the fit of American Apparel T-shirts, and was wondering if someone offers 100% cotton crew neck sweaters with a similar or "slim" fit?

I bought a crew neck sweater off of LL bean, and although the fit is pretty good, something a little slimmer would be just perfect for me. Anyone have any recommendations?

Thank you in advance,

I would be really interested to know an answer for this question as well. For merino sweaters too.

Can you elaborate? Can the ordinary tailor on the street corner tailor my LL Bean sweater to fit a little more snug? Doesn't that require a lot of skill?-i don't wanna ruin my new sweaters...

If they're knit yes, but there are people who do that. As for an ordinary sweatshirt the same principles apply as if it were a suit shirt.
