I was very apprehensive, ordered before reading reviews, became paranoid about having to return something before I got it. Ordered XL and was starting to believe a medium would work. I love the roomy feel of a sweatshirt for layering purposes. It does feel snug at the waist but over all it has the old time feel of a well made sweatshirt and not the imported crap that rips in 2 months. Worth the extra but in the long run is it really extra if it lasts?
Don't even bother trying to find a viable alternative that is on par with AG's quality, craftsmanship, and price range. You are better off purchasing this and ending up with the most comfortable sweatshirt that will last you a long time. Size runs larger than their heavyweight zip-up hoodie so I recommend sizing down.
I thought id write this review out of consideration for people looking to buy this. First and Foremost, this crewneck is THICK and of the HIGHEST quality. I cannot stress how well this is made. Thick and comfortable. Im 6'2 and 260lbs. It makes me look a bit slimmer and i know it travels over my belly but i will complain that its about an inch too short for my preference, not a complaint just a comment. Other than that i would give this thing 10/10. Phenomenal quality and build. Now if only the Heavyweight hoodie would come back in stock haha. Enjoy.
I am 5'8 and 140 -- fairly slender, but I'm not an ant. The small is just giant on me. That this is the smallest size is just crazy.

This is one of the softest things in the world. Softer than a fresh baby hot out of the oven (by oven, I mean a womb; we're not eating babies), yet the fabric is still durable. However, from a few of the reviews that I read before making a purchase, it noted to size up... Depending on your physique... don't!! I am 5'10/165lbs athletic build with broad shoulders. I normally wear a small in most brands of clothing, however, a medium will fit like a large here. Therefore, unless you've got a gut, then I would say size up because the torso is a loose fit (the hem does not snug around you like the picture portray, which isn't a bad thing, I prefer it). Purchase the size you would purchase a t-shirt on average, I cannot stress this enough!
Just got my sweatshirt, and wow. I'm not disappointed. Reading the reviews, I ordered the small in hopes of avoiding a baggy fit. (I'm 6'0" with an athletic build.) I'm happy to say that the small actually fits really well, if you prefer a fitted look as I do. So sizing is definitely a bit big. However, I couldn't be happier with the construction of the sweatshirt. This thing feels like it'll last forever.
I cannot say enough positive about this sweatshirt. First and foremost the sweatshirt is American made. You buy this sweatshirt you are not only purchasing an optimal product, but you are keeping Americans employed. Secondly the construction is top notch. If you want a girly fitting sweatshirt, look elsewhere.
Agree with posters below. Much baggier than expected. I'm 6'4" 205lbs athletic build and initially ordered XL based on old reviews had to return for a L which is still looser than expected. Was hoping for more.
XL Fits slightly loose at 6'0" 205 lbs. The weight and feel of the cotton is a pleasure to wear. Holds up very well to washing, shrinks a bit but doesn't lose its shape. Details like the tapered midsection, and extra long sleeves really make this sweater stand out.
The sweatshirt doesn't have the same fit as the hoodies, but they are still very well made. I almost feel like the clothe is a better quality than the hoodie. Once you put it on, you know this will last a very long time. Worth the money.
Had it less than a week and had to steal it back from my girlfriend.
I'm 5'11 190 lbs. A Large sweatshirt was perfect and keeps me warm in Canadian winters. Might stay in shape just so this sweatshirt always fits.
This product is beautifully crafted. The materials are top notch. I ordered these after I read an article that stated their fabrics come from an American cotton spinner and Mill (Pardale and Carolina Cotton Works). This is as American as you can get. I weigh probably 158, have a 39.5" chest and 33" sleeve (waist is 33.5"). The elastic around the waist is too big and the fit is baggy all around. If you are skinny and athletic and like your clothing to not be baggy, size down. I will be returning my Medium. The zip hoodie looks to be a bit on the small side so I'll stick with the Medium on that product. A bit frustrating, but this product is worth the wait.
I love this sweatshirt. Great material, great quality, great fit. I am 5'8" with a 42" chest. The L fits me perfectly. I think a hoodie will be my next purchase.
Great fit, basically a perfect sweatshirt. The sweater is perfect for the winter. I'm 5'11 160 and a medium fits and a large would have been too big overall I'm impressed with the quality keep it up american- giant!
Couldn't wait for the hoodie, picked up the regular sweatshirt in XL. I'm 5'8 and about 215 lbs. Yeah, I'm a little fat. Anyway, this sweatshirt fits great at XL. So glad I bought one. They really, really are nice. Getting one for the rest of the family! Hope they're in by Christmas!
A bit apprehensive when I ordered the shirt but upon receiving it, can attest to the claim that the quality, fit and workmanship are incomparable! A bit snug initially but after about an hour of wear, fit perfectly!! And proof that outstanding American made products are still available!
Extremely high quality. This shirt shows what America can produce.
Got a dusty blue today. I'm not an athletic build, but it looks great on me, feels comfortable, beautifully finished with very high quality materials and workmanship. I'm old enough that this sweatshirt will probably outlast me! Like me, made in the USA.
Received my sweatshirt today, two days after it was shipped. Great fit, and I was amazed at the fabric. You can feel the strength in the construction, but the fabric still has a soft hand (which my wife loved). You can tell it's one of those things that will only get better with time.
