As far as I can tell, this product was not made for a famous US retailer, but is the kind of thing you'll find at miscellaneous oddball stores in malls.
The hoody is very warm and comfortable, but the mfg. quality is not great (exterior layer pills and sherpa lining is extremely flimsy). I'll be lucky to get more than one winter season out of it. On the other hand, STP's price was low.
This item has a high percentage of polyester, because of this it will probably not shrink very much.

polyester progressively shrinks tiny bit at a time and not much overall unlike cotton or rayon which shrink a fair amount right away then stay a stable size, so read the label, if 100% polyester it will not shrink much, but this is made to wear over other clothing so it is something you will want a little large

Haven't tried washing this jacket yet. However, if the outside and liner are made of different materials then they may shrink differently.
