Wow. 107 posts on one of the most boring articles of clothing I can imagine. Next up: the perfect black shoe lace.

Buy a Japanese, Real McCoys, Studio d'Artisan or similar, it's expensive, but worth it. Cheaper from Japan even with proxy. You will have it for decades.

^^^ Not worth it for a simple gray sweatshirt. I got one from Lands End Canvas for like $30, its warm, comfortable and sturdy. And it will last as long as an overpriced one from Japan.

I've picked up the fujiwara from thecorner and love the fit. It is the slimmest I've seen and actually tapers from the shoulders down. Not too expensive either

And every time you put it on, you'll be thinking: well I sure saved same money on this.

The other guy will be thinking: damn this is a nice sweatshirt.

I agree. The things you spend your money on are all relative. You may have an idea that a great sweatshirt isn't worth spending the money on, while others will disagree with you.

Let me just say this: certain brands from Japan may be "overpriced." But, brands like Buzz Rickson, etc. are actually at a pretty decent pricepoint for the fabric being used. Your Lands End sweatshirt doesn't compare to a loopwheeler in any way. To you a sweatshirt might be some shitty piece of clothing you slop on, to others it's fashion, or at least worth investing in, and to each his own. I suspect if you got your hands on loopwheeler fleece you might at least appreciate the difference.

This is exactly right, contrary to noob mentality.

Still need a loopwheeler, brian?

The cost per wear on my Buzz Rickson is minimal. I wear the hell out of that piece.

I sure will. I know its a matter of personal priority (I spend the big $$ on shoes and denim/pants), but $100+ for a sweatshirt doesn't add up in my mind.

Back to topic, the Our Legacy Great Sweat is awesome too. There is a grey pixel version this season that looks great.

usually Land's End clothes look dowdy, are made in China, and are Cotton Poly blends.  However, they currently have a made in USA classic grey crewneck sweatshirt that looks pretty nice. I'm thinking about going for it...
