What are you looking for in your cardigan?

I like classic and warm. Yours looks more fashion. Is there a look you are trying to achieve?

The style you picked, you need to try on. With the toggles, any tightness from the cut will make you look like your busting out of it.

It isn't tight around the buckles at all and it is pretty warm from wearing it out in 35 degree weather in Barcelona.

When in doubt don't...

A mock neck cable knit sweater is a far better choice...slimming and youthful.

You want to look like you're at a ski lodge not an old folks home.
