Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Look no further
I've been looking for a simple crew neck sweatshirt without a manufacturer's name splashed across the front and now I've found it. I'm 5'6" tall with 32" sleeves and a 38" chest. I like a relaxed fit shirt that doesn't hang down below my waist and without sleeves that would do credit to an orangutan. Based on other reviews I read I figured the medium in this shirt would fit me the best and I was right. The shirt's arms and waist lengths are just right. Besides an excellent fit, the shirt is well constructed with a fleecy inner that gives it warmth. At $35 with free shipping these shirts are a bargain. I ordered two of them and I'm glad I did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by vwguy Decent mid-weight sweatshirt
While not the Champion sweatshirts some of us remember, this is a still a decent mid-weight sweatshirt. I got an extra large and after a few times in the wash it still measures 26" pit to pit. I am not a slim fit guy, but I do wish the arm holes were a bit smaller, they're huge. One other nitpick, I am getting the white pills from the inside as others mentioned, I hope it goes away in time

These shirts in small fit well. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. What you would come to expect from Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by breezewood Buy Tall
I initially ordered regular size (I am 5'9) and like a lot of shirts it felt short in the sleeves and waist. So I did not wear the the shirt as often as I would have liked. Usually just cold nights to sleep in. But is was a great shirt as for comfort, warmth and durability. Also looks good. So I got this wild idea to order one in tall. BINGO. Not too long, just right. I can lift my arms and not have the waist wide up above my stomach and have sleeves go just beyond my wrist if I stretch it. I promptly gave my regular to charity and ordered 2 more in tall. I have this same experience with other LLBean shirts such as the turtle necks. Plan to try same thing with them. Not sure how a "tall" person feels about the fit for them and wished LLBEAN would alter the length of many of the shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NN4CR Completely "at home" in this sweatshirt
Feels natural and easy. Soft material that's thicker. Shoulders have plenty of room and nothing feels constricting or too baggy. My grey one has held up well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rejected Disappointed in LL Bean Quality suddenly!!!
I purchased a few men's sweatshirts spring 2015. Fit was great and comfortable. Good weight, as a sweatshirt should be and washable without gradually having it shrink to become a hand-me-down. I just ordered a few more as I wear them constantly and wanted more to rotate between laundry days. I just returned them and v-neck sweaters because they did not fit well in the shoulders and drooped at the waist. Very poor elastic at the waist and cuffs. The prices are not cheap but the quality was. One sweatshirt looked to have been laundered and a previous return. I have some back ordered sweaters and if they too arrive like this, it is cut the LL Bean card and good bye.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RTNye Inside Lining a Problem
Comfortable, sized right but the white inside fuzzy lining just keeps coming loose, leaving all the white pilling material on my clothing underneath. Washing does not eliminate it. Being a long time customer, I am going to agree that other reviews on your products quality changing for the worse are unfortunately true.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MidnightBlue disappointing fabric change
We've bought 90% of our clothing form Bean for over 25 years! But what is happening? Same wonderful service as always, but quality is going down. Lots of changes in fabrics & fits of even 'old reliables'. I've had to return way too many things the last few years due to these problems. Usually the mens 'clothes aren't as problematic as the womens' in this way but the mens' are cathcing up...
Now to the specifics of this sweatshirt (and also matching sweatpants): the fabric is very differnt than all the other pairs of the same item I've bought over the years. This time it's MUCH thinner. My husband is keeping them as he needs some new sweats (though who knows how long they will last), but I'm afraid in the future we will have to switch to a competitor for this item. This seems to be happenning with many Bean products, which is very disappointing. I would much rather do all my shopping at Bean but it's becoming impossible. I know I can always return (and these days I often do) but it's time-consuming, and I'm still left without what I need. Sadly, the quality seems to be coming down to that of big box stores it seems, but with higher prices...
