Does this Cardigan fit me?

Hello everyone, I found a Cardigan that I really like. I tried it in the store but they only had size S and S seemed a bit tight, so I ordered it online in M. I'm 180 cm tall and weigh 68 kg (just so you guys have a reference). I got it in M today and tried it on but I'm not sure it fits me. I have to roll up the sleeves to get them to look decent. Here's what it looks like with me wearing it: I really love this piece but I'm not sure whether M fits me or not. I'm a little concerned that M is too large for me but then S seemed a bit too small.. I'm not experienced with fashion at all (getting into it now) so I'd appreciate any advice as to whether or not this fits.

Thanks for your help! I've bought some clothes in the past that didn't fit me at all and I'm looking to avoid that mistake (like buying 34x32 jeans when I need 31x34...).

Is rolling the sleeves up a no go on a cardigan like this? If I don't roll them up the cover my hands completely.

I was a bit worried that the cardigan is too long. I don't want people to think that I borrowed my dad's clothes :)

If you like it looser, you've got the right fit. I'd have gone for the small - it'd have less bulk at the shoulders and fit better in the sleeves - and you're skinnier than me.

It looks fine. Having to roll up the sleeves a little is a good look on a cardigan.

Looking at your pics in "thumbnail versions" prior to blowing them up made that "Y" look like a martini glass. That would be an awesome cardigan.

The seam on the shoulders is at a good place. So the rest is up to you. What are you going to wear under this? One or two layers would both be cool.

Haha! Apparently it's made by a company called YMC (You Must Create). Still unsure about what size to get. Like some of you said I could probably get away with M. I'm not sure about M though. In the store, S seemed a bit too "tight", especially with all the buttons buttoned. I'll have to give this some more thought.

I was planning on wearing that cardigan with a nice shirt underneath and maybe a t-shirt underneath the shirt (depending on how warm it is).

I'm still open to more input. At this point I'm considering going to the store to try it in S again.

That was my first thought: If you didn't go to Yale then it doesn't fit.

Kidding aside, people (at least in the US) will ask if you went to Yale if you wear that around. Yalies don't tend to be a particularly violent crowd, so you are unlikely to get into any serious trouble.

Probably. I don't think I'll be mistaken for a Yale student though seeing as I live in Germany! Most people here don't know what Yale is :)

If I saw you in Italy I'd have a mind to ask you whether you went to Yale. And England.

I prefer the closer fits so I say it's a bit big.
