This hoodie kills me. I was looking for something (a) slim fit, (b) a bit of stretch, (c) organic cotton, and (d) really well made. It gets the first three just right, but then it falls down on quality and workmanship. I have two of these. The first one is unraveling where the cuffs meet the sleeves. The second sustained an inch-long tear in the fabric when being washed. On both, the elastic around the waist is getting mighty lax. As another reviewer mentioned, it's also not particularly warm. I understand it's lightweight and the spandex likely doesn't help, but expect this to insulate more like a long-sleeve T shirt than a lightweight fleece. It's really too bad -- if it was well-made and a tiny bit warmer, it would be an easy perfect 5 days. I'm hoping another brand offers something superior, because I would buy several.

I had high hopes for this sweatshirt and instead received a thin, unfitted rag. I’m 5’11” 180 and it hung well below my belt line. It was also not fitted at all and disappointingly thin. If you must order go a size smaller.
