I have received so many compliments on this sweater. It has superior QUALITY in its stitching and you can feel it from the moment you pick it up. And an extremely SLIMMING silhouette. I'm 5'5, 135lbs, typically size 4-6, and the small worked perfect for me (can fit a thin long-sleeve/ t-shirt underneath, but I would size up if you're planning on wearing thicker long sleeves underneath) due to the skinnier breadth in the upper arms.
I have been looking at these sweatshirt for a few months, read all the rave reviews and finally decided to pull the trigger. I got my sweatshirt last week and I have worn it almost everyday, is is so comfortable, soft and true to size. If you are considering this sweatshirt, go for it! You won't regret it.
I bought this in black and love it; thick fabric, fitted cut, double-thick elbows, it's the sweatshirt I can wear to work. I'm 5'10 and a size 18 and the XL was perfect. My only complaint would be the collar ribbing crumples after washing around the zipper, so it's not really a mock neck and the stiff zipper means you can't found it over.
I waited patiently for the grey to be restocked to order it also and was very disappointed it was cut shorter and smaller than the black. The sleeves didn't make it past my wrists and the body was almost 2 inches shorter than the black (and of course my black jacket's been washed multiple times).
American Giant, you need to get your sizing right, there's a reason XS and S are the only sizes you can keep in stock. Make your clothes bigger!
This is my first AG purchase. I hemmed and hawed and then finally took the plunge. Glad I did! It is perfection, nice heavyweight without the bulk and the details are perfection. Now I know what everyone is talking about! Now to get some hoodies for my hubby and kids!
The fabric weight, deep cuffs, zippers, and the doubled-up elbow placket are nice on this, but over-all this sweatshirt was a disappointment. I'm 5'5" 110 lbs and ordered a S due to others reviews that it ran tight and I wanted to layer under it. With just a t-shirt underneath the forearms were super tight but the body was loose and boxy with the collar sticking out several inches beyond my neck. A boxy fit can work with raglan sleeves but these are stiff, set-in sleeves that didn't quite match my shoulder and looked odd and frumpy. Maybe an XS would have fit better, but who wants a sweat-shirt where there is not enough room to fit a long-sleeve t-shirt under it? Californians I guess. :) The ribbed bottom also bulged in an unflattering way at the seam where it was attached to the body and the pockets were set at different angles and looked crazy lop-sided. Not writing AG off yet as I really want some American made basics but so far not impressed with the fit and quality control. Please improve, I will support you!
I bought the grey because it had less back order time then the black. I'm a 61 year old women, 5'3" and 140lbs. I bought the medium and wish I had bought the large. The medium fits fine, but is more snug than I like. I absolutely love the pockets on this jacket! Just like men have pockets on the inside of a jacket, so does this jacket
I love everything about this jacket; it's warm, stylish, comfortable and and very high quality. My one wish would be for petite sizing. I am only 5ft. tall with a short torso and it's really longer in the body than I would like. I'm keeping it because of all the wonderful qualities, but please add a petite line and I'll take one of everything!
My first American Giant sweatshirt - love it. Warm, without being bulky. I can't do the hoodie thing - this is the perfect substitute. I got the Phantom grey - less raisin than the pictures. I wish it were more purplish than grey, but oh well. Please make other colors (brighter ones). 5'10" and 160 lbs. Got the L and it fits well
I'm 5'8" and 200 lbs. XL fits beautifully. The sleeves are long enough for my ridiculous ape-arms, which alone would endear this sweatshirt to me! The gray color goes with everything, and the mock neck make this sweatshirt acceptable at my work. Very sturdy and well-constructed.
For info purposes I am: 5'8", 155 lbs, 32DDD.
This sweatshirt is perfect! Sleeves and torso is the perfect length which is a challenge to find since I have a long torso and big lady lumps!
I was surprised to see such a tiny box thinking no way was it a sweatshirt but I promise you the quality is spot on. Thick fabric and sturdy zipper. The fabric is thick NOT super extreme but super comfy
Now for more colors so I can have one for every day of the week!
I really wanted to dislike this sweatshirt due to the price, but it is really perfect for what I wanted it for. I am a teacher, and my classroom sometimes gets really cold, so I wanted a sweatshirt that could look somewhat professional. I've tried other sweatshirts, but this fits the bill perfectly. The cut is flattering, and the sweatshirt can be dressed up easily by adding a scarf. I keep the sweatshirt on all the time now, so I think I'm going to have to go in for another one! I am 5'3, 145 lbs, 34 G bra, and I ordered a medium. I can wear a lightweight shirt underneath and zip it up all the way. It fits snugly that way, but not overly tight.
I have several items from American Giant...mainly hoodies and crewnecks. I ordered this lovely beauty to solve a serious problem! What started as an affinity for a hoodie has now blossomed into a full-fledged obsession for all things A.G. I work in an office where our dress code specifically states we are not to wear sweatshirts or hoodies.
However, after owning a hoodie for a few weeks, I was hooked. I would wear the hoodie to work, change into my blazers, then as soon as I could get out, put the hoodie right back on. I reallllly don't want to take it off! I have only begrudgingly removed my hoodie to wash it at the last possible second, and then stare at the laundry until it's done & I throw it right back on!
So, I ordered this jacket since I could wear it in the office and still feel like I'm wearing my A.G. "garment cocoon" without looking too, ahem, 'comfortable'. Well, when I placed my order, it said it was back-ordered until Jan 30, 2015. Oh, no!! Oh, well, such is life, right!? Well, to my surprise, she arrived today, and not a moment too soon. I head back to the office on Monday, and I couldn't be happier b/c now I have this new recruit to take with me to start 2015 on the right foot! THANK YOU, American Giant for getting her to me so quickly! I'm ALMOST excited to go back to work now that I have my new jacket! ~xoxoxo, Summer
For trivia purposes, I am 5'6", average build, small waist & curvy on bottom, 36B bra, size 6 on top and bottom in most things, and the mediums have worked like a charm. I bought a LARGE sweatshirt crewneck for lazier days around the house, but it is much too big to look "put together". The mediums are not tight, but do skim my body just right.
According to the chart, I was right in between M and L. I opted for the large since I prefer things a little looser, and it fits really well in the torso, with enough space for layering. The sleeves are a bit too long for me, so I have the cuffs folded back. I love the hoodless-hoodie! I have enough hooded clothes!
Perfect fit, style and quality! I am 5'6" and 175 lbs. XL works well with a sweater underneath. I think I might have a new addiction.

Great change from the hoodie. Please make in more colors; forest green, navy, white, etc.

I'm 5'2 125lbs and bought a women's mock neck size medium in the grey. I absolutely love it. It's just the right size to layer a lightweight sweater under. I'm a sweatshirt junkie so it's a must have.
Just received this jacket and it is delicious! I ordered a M and it fits perfectly, I'm 5'5" and 140lbs and couldn't be happier with the fit. The quality is fantastic and I look forward to ordering more, well worth the $$!
Please let me know when you make this in red. The black one I just received is fabulous!!!
I am not even close to being a super model.. I am actually working very hard at losing some baby weight. I am 5'2, 190 lbs, very pear shaped. This XL fits nice! It's a bit long but super warm and stylish. Thanks!
I just received my first American Giant garment, a women's heavyweight zip mock neck sweatshirt. This is by far the nicest sweatshirt I have ever seen or owned. The fabric, style and quality of construction exceeded my greatest expectations. Thank you for making such a fine product!
I bought two AG heavyweight hooded sweatshirts within the past year, but after awhile I realized that I did not really like the hood. I didn't have need of it, and it made the sweatshirt too bulky and heavy. So I decided to try the mock, and I LOVE IT. It's exactly like the hooded sweatshirt (which was great except for the hood), so without the hood makes it perfect for me. I will order another one when they are back in stock. I am 5'7", 130 lb, long-waisted and this fits like it was custom made for me.
Just got this jacket in the mail: I LOVE it.
Perfect fit: slim, flattering, classic lines. Has a kind of moto-jacket look, but without the fuss. Hits the right note between sophisticated and totally laid back. Loving it! Also, it's a perfect weight: warm, but not too warm - will layer nicely over t's and under coats.
Sizing details: I'm 5'10", 34B, 150lbs, lanky build. Surprisingly, the medium not only fit well in the torso, but is actually long enough in the arms (reaches my wrists! amazing!)
Really pleased with this purchase. Thanks AG.
Wow! I fell in love with this shirt from the time I unwrapped it from the box. It has the perfect fit for my body type, being both flattering and comfortable. Please keep on producing that stuff! :)
Ordered this one wo the hood so I could wear it as a jacket with scarves or under my snowboard jacket. It's perfect! Sizing chart was spot on. It's heavy material but not thick and bulky. They mentioned a fleecy inside but it's more like brushed cotton? Whatever they do it's great material and built to last. Perfect for cold weather. I know I'm going to wear this all the time so I ordered a HW Hoodie Zip and a MW Hoodie Zip. That should cover every occasion :) I do wish they offered more colors. Especially faded ones like blue, black and red and navy. Beggars can't be choosers. Maybe next year.
I love this sweatshirt! It is fitted enough to be flattering, but loose enough to move in comfortably. I especially love the interior pockets, sized exactly for a phone. It is exceptionally well made, and I can tell that it will only look better with washings and age.
This is a warm garment, more like a fall jacket than a typical sweatshirt. If you want an indoor sweatshirt, you might want a lighter weight. I'm a walker, and this is perfect for that.
