Navas Lab Billy Sweater Crew Long Sleeve Fleece Review
The Navas Lab Billy Sweater Crew Long Sleeve Fleece is a high-quality sweater worth the price.
In the month, I have reviewed a handful of Navas Lab garments. Some of them were not worth the price point, while some blew me away with how everything fit perfectly. But the biggest thing I learned is that the clothing line from Navas works better together, not as single garments.
This Billy sweater hits all the right areas for us tall men. Long in the sleeve and long in length without billowing. The overall cut gives more space throughout the whole sweater, allowing for multiple layers underneath if wanted.
But that extra weight from the cloth creates a heavy-looking sweater that can be quite fashionable, especially when matched with other clothes from Navas (see styling tips at the bottom of the article.)
There is one thing that I hope can be fixed in time with the sweater, and that is the neck. The cut of the neck is perfect however the fabric used is rigid. It does make for a little “tall man” awkwardness getting it off without throwing your hair all out of wack.
As you can tell, this sweater has grown on me these last few weeks. It is costly, but I say it’s worth it.

How to take care of your Billy Sweater Crew Long Sleeve Fleece
No matter how big a piece of clothing is, I am sure you are like me in always washing it in cold water and then letting it air dry. The chances of the hot water or hot air shrinking your Billy Sweater Crew Long Sleeve Fleece are too costly.
Once you have cleaned your sweater, put it away correctly and treat it with care to make it last as long as possible. Follow my guides on taking care of your sweater.
