Need slim v-neck sweater, online

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.

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.

The American Apparel V-neck sweater is awesome. heres the link to the store: http://www.americanapparelstore.com/rsaf401.html This item is store exclusive but I have friends in high places and could probably get it for you for about 30 bucks plus 4.50 shipping in the U.S. I sell other American Apparel stuff for wholesale if your interested.

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.
