I am not sure that I would like this sweater as much as I do if it did not fit so well. A crewneck should lightly hug your collar, or at the very least touch your collar. I haven’t worn it very much, but so far it has lost no elasticity, and I take my sweater on and off through out day. It falls just past my waist and hugs my body nicely.
In my opinion, nothing looks worse than a baggy or stretched out crewneck. Just as the crewneck should hug your collar, the bottom should hug your waist.
