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...

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.
