    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a warm winter crewneck sweater that meets the following criteria:

    1. Heavier weight/chunky feel
    2. Want a non-itchy fabric, but would prefer something like merino wool for durability (though I'm aware this is usually thinner)
    3. Crewneck since this is for casual wear
    4. Short-ish sleeves! I fit around a 32" dress shirt sleeve, and am annoyed that nearly all sweaters tend to have 34" sleeves which I have to roll up

    Any suggestions? Maybe japanese brands or something?

    I'm looking at a style similar to this:

    With only a medium size, that has 34" sleeves and a 42" chest though.

    I'm 5'9/160lbs, so don't want anything super huge in the chest either.

    I think All Saints has some nice ones. If you're near an m0851 they have these super thick Bulgarian made sweaters with silk fibers for half-off right now. Like $125
