Hanes Ultimate Cotton&reg; Crewneck Adult Sweatshirt
I always buy XL shirts. These shrank so much when I washed them I can't wear them now.

YOU RUINED MY FAVORITE SWEATSHIRT!
Oh, the humanity! I purchase a bunch of these sweatshirts every 2-3 years, so it was with gleeful anticipation that I completed my traditional Hanes Ultimate Cotton sweatshirt purchasing rite this year. I couldn't wait to snuggle into the warm, fleecy goodness I've become accustomed to. I looked forward to once again slobbing around the house on chilly days in the tunic-length (on my average-height female frame) sweatshirt that has become a staple in my super-casual winter wardrobe. So it was with shock and dismay that I tried on this year's batch of Ultimate Cotton sweatshirts and discovered...they're so much THINNER than usual! Not nearly as fleecy! They're SHORTER!! My head is still reeling from the emotional trauma wrought by the deliberate desecration of my favorite sweatshirt. Hanes should pay for my therapy bills; it's going to take years to recover.
What it boils down to is this: The Ultimate Cotton sweatshirt is now on par quality-wise with the eight dollar sweatshirts you can buy at that very popular big box store notorious for exploitative labor practices. I don't normally advocate shopping there, but if you've barely got two cents to rub together, don't waste your money on the Hanes sweatshirt.
P.S. The royal blue and deep forest ones aren't even soft! And they're 2" shorter than the deep red and maroon ones.

I love this sweatshirt. The short, W I D E new style ones are awful and unflattering. Yea for the traditional style.

I have ordered 4 sweatshirts this year. I keep going back because the quality is excellent. They do run big but after the first washing and drying the fit is great. I order the mens only because I feel the material is thicker to the touch, I usually always order white but I have ordered the kelly green and the bright marine blue. I hope they don't fade. This is the time to order seeing we can get outside more now that the weather is starting to get better. I would recommend these to everyone.
