    Basic v-neck sweater



    Hey guys...looking for a little advice. I'm trying to build my wardrobe by loading up on some basics and am in need of some standard v-neck sweaters. I have one Banana Republic v-neck extra fine marino in charcoal which fits well but most of my other sweaters are too boxy. I found the sweater from below and am intrigued, but I was always under the impression (perhaps wrongly) that Brooks Brothers tends to be boxy. Also, I'm a little leery about the ribbing on the bottom as I found that those can bunch up and give a blousing effect. Any advice or suggestions?

    Edit: Found these two that really give that slim fit effect that I'm looking for. They are almost double the amount of the BB one but I can get the Express on for about $40 with the promo.

    If not, this Fall 2010 post may also be a good start:

    Not sure what your body type is so I can't really point you to one or the other.I wish the forum had a signature option or something in the profile for that.

      @YackoYak,thanks for the links. It seems like Joe's post couldn't have come at a better time for me! I'll be heading out shopping tomorrow so at least now I'll have a couple of places to concentrate on rather than just aimlessly wandering around. Hopefully I'll find a couple of options on my hunt.
