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...

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.
