Looking for a good quality cardigan that isn't too form fitted

Should have said form fitted, not tight. I'm not as skinny as a lot of the people on the board. I'm about 5'9 195, not fat, but not exactly an extremely muscular 195. Anyway, I've been looking for a good cardigan that will fit me decent.

As far as giving an example for sizing, I can fit into this season's Gap sweaters in a Medium. I tried on their new Merino V necks and a medium fit fine all around (length, width? etc.)

I was thinking about this one in a medium. Doesn't look too tight:

did you really not see the official cardigan thread or did you just ignore it?

I absolutely hate the way that one seems to flare at the bottom, as well as the long sleeve length. I don't mind a little room in the body as long as it hugs the waistline more than that. I think this example just looks sloppy.
