As another reviewer has already mentioned - this is a nice sweatshirt but they do shrink. I typically wear a Large, but ordered a couple in XL that are 90 percent cotton. If you are going to wash them in warm water, and dry them in a dryer with heat - you definitely want to order a size larger. I measured the body and sleeves when new. After wearing, washing, and drying (on medium heat instead of the recommended low heat) several times - the body shrank about 2-1/2" (in length) and the sleeves shrank about 3" (in length), but that has stabilized in recent washes. The XL is now a solid L. Other than the shrinkage - they are comfortable, warm, and seem to be durable.

My only concern is the cold water wash guideline, one I don't intend to follow because cold water never washes out dirt and grease as well as warm. Why would they make a men's sweatshirt and not choose a fabric that can be washed in warm water...that's a mystery to me.

This is one of four oversized sweatshirts I have purchased from STP. Each one I received is a good quality, warm and looks great. The prices were incredibly low and that is why I bought four. I am thrilled with my purchases.
