Rated 5 out of 5 by NN4CR Perfect for guys
I am a female and purchased one of these sweatshirts when I noticed other women were doing so. LLB might want to consider making the exact same thing but to a woman's sizing specs.
These are great, well-made shirts. The fabric is thick, soft and cozy. The cut is roomy. The details like hem and cuffs, collar triangle are excellent. They are the dream of what a woman wishes our sweatshirts were, but never are.
I had to send mine back. The shoulders for a man are broader, the arms wider and longer, the length longer the neck wider. Unless a woman wants a very sloppy shirt, this will not do.
Of course, LLB is offering a man's shirt! I realize I was taking a chance. But after noticing so many girls, along with myself, being attracted to this "classic" sweatshirt, I just hope to alert others and maybe give LLB a hint about making a "real sweatshirt" for the rest of us.

I've been wearing these sweatshirts for years and decided to buy a couple of more this year.
The model number on the label, OKC39 is the same, but the quality is not the same. Much lighter fabric.
No longer worth the extra price over other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spert Perfect crew neck sweatshirt
I've been looking for a high quality crew neck sweatshirt. Seems tough to find these days as most are hooded. This sweatshirt is true to size...I'm 5' 8" at 148 lbs and a small is perfect. Great soft feel inside and out and just the right amount of room so it is not too tight. Nice elastic in the cuff and bottom hem. Ordered the light gray and dark nave blue. These should last many years, and whenever they do need to be replace I will buy another from L.L. Bean. Nice job on a classic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kukakuka Great sweatshirt but oh, my, the sleeves...!
This sweatshirt is well-made and heavy enough to keep me warm on cool days, but the sleeves are so wide! Granted, I'm very short and on the stocky side and I know most sleeves will be too long, but rarely have I encountered such w-i-d-e ones. Push them up and I look like a sumo wrestler/Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man! I ordered two and am keeping them anyway because they're fine otherwise and I might have the sleeves narrowed and shortened.... By the way, my over 6' tall husband tried one on and of course it looked nearly perfect on him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonathanO Comfy sweater
I've had this sweater for a little longer than half a year now and it's held up well so far. It is warm and comfortable, and nice to wear around the house when it's colder out. The soft interior is responsible for the comfort. The red color is attractive and the sweater, while being fairly basic, looks good.

Sweat shirt has a good feel, didn't shrink or pill and the price was fair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scrabbleplayer GREAT item
I buy the crewneck "shirt" often. My husband wears the crewneck almost every day.
Wears well, washes fabulously, spots come off with a pre-wash item.
I give this a "10"!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Loonlover11 Didn't hold up
I purchased two of these sweatshirts because of the reviews and the price. I expected them to hold their shape for a long time. However, after two years, the bottoms are so stretched out that they look terrible. These were not worn that frequently, that they should have done gotten out of shape. Would not recommend purchasing these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A2Mark Really Good Sweatshirt
This item is way better than most sweatshirts you buy in regular stores or college branded stuff. Plus it is available in TALL. The sizes area actually TRUE. Will buy more of these.
