CLOSE TO THE BODY
With limited exceptions-certain styles of cardigans are supposed to be roomy-sweaters should be cut close to your body. Choose pullovers that are snug enough to be worn comfortably under a jacket but not so tight that you couldn't wear them over a collared shirt.
The best judge for whether a sweater fits you properly is the shoulders. Go down a size until the seam sits as close as possible to the center of each shoulder. Stop when the seam starts to creep toward your collarbone and well before the hem of the sweater starts to creep up your torso.
A sweater that's-bulky at the waist flatters no man (this is especially true with turtlenecks). A pullover should skim the sides of your torso but be long enough to cover your waistband.
