by LLPreppy Looks / Fits Great, but DOES NOT Wear Well
I ordered this sweatshirt over a month ago, and was happy with the way it looked, and especially with the way it fit, as it was long enough in the torso for me when most sweatshirts are not. After 3 washings, however, it ripped a the bottom of the placket. After washings 4 and 5, holes developed at three of the 5 corners of the front pocket. I wish I had ordered the signature cotton fleece crew instead :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by browniepoint Very comfortable
I like the button down front. The only thing I would change is there are only 2 colors to choose from. And this hooded sweat shirt is not available every year.

This hoodie is my new favorite - it's perfect for a fall day in the woods, by the campfire, or just sitting at home watching football. I hope that LLBean brings it back with more colors soon! :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by OldSchoolBeanFan Looks great but fell apart after 3 washes
I ordered this for my fiance who saw it in the catalog. It looks great and the fit was spot-on. We were disappointed in the fabric weight (definitely more of a t-shirt material) but the details are sharp so we kept it. We just washed it for the third time and the placket pulled completely out of the shirt - HUGE holes down the front. Very disappointed in the quality. We know LLBean will replace it but aren't sure we really want another one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AllCottonBuyer Not the weight you want . . .
It took mere seconds out of the box - the time to hoist this sweatshirt up for a good look in my hands - to be disappointed. You could tell by the weight - or lack of it. It isn't the nice heavyweight sweatshirt that you wanted to see; something more in tune for a "cool" summer night at the beach than a staple of your winter wardrobe. And not what I expected at the price, frankly.
So sad, but this is running rampant throughout all of LL Bean's offerings. Wares that wore so well for me from a few years ago all seem to be lighter in weight and that much flimsier. They used to put the fabric weight in ounces in product descriptions too and that's nearly never found anymore either.
Finding good quality all-cotton goods is getting increasingly hard. The way we're making them now, I need to wear a few more layers . . .
I have not yet decided if I'll return it, or re-purpose to that beachwear, but I'll never be fully happy.
