While quality seems to fading in so many well known companies, the heavyweight sweatshirt bought here was nicely heavyweight and good quality. Three cheers for Hanes on this item
Hanes Men's Ultimate Cotton Heavyweight Fleece Sweatshirt
Country of Origin: Imported
proposition 65 reasons:titanium dioxide, other chemicals
Finally found a mostly cotton sweatshirt and it's a dandy! Just make sure you account for pretty significant shrinkage if dried normally. Very good quality. Only complaint is the gigantic Hanes label inside the back of the neck.....it cannot be cut out w/o leaving a hole so don't try! Hanes--ditch the label, it's really annoying.
I have always had good luck with Hanes products and consider them to be an excellent choice. I always wear sweatshirts in the cold weather and wanted a little heavier sweat shirt from the brand I had been wearing. The Hanes Ultimate fit the bill for this and I would recommend them to all that wear sweat shirts as a first choice.
I've bought several of these, some zip-front, too. I LOVE the high cotton fiber content - something hard to find nowadays and, if you can find it, the sweatshirt is so unaffordable. They are, in my opinion, not the heaviest weight I've had, but they are certainly are NOT flimsy, thin things... they have a certain amount of bulk or beefiness. I think they run a bit large, but not too much - I don't think enough to order a size down. Besides, we don't like snug sweatshirts. I didn't notice any shrinkage after washing+drying (cold wash+rinse, medium/perma-press heat dry) Perfect for what we wanted, and reasonably priced! Very happy with these ultimate cotton sweatshirts.
I am shocked by the quality of this sweatshirt! It is black and sheds on everything, now my husband's white underwear is completely covered in black non-removable fuzz! It doesn't feel like cotton and the labels in the back are big and stick out into the neck. Also it came with a white residue (glue?) on the front of the shirt that doesn't come off! Where, oh where has Hanes quality gone?
