    i have never had this issue with any of my pairs (currently on my third).


    most loopwheeler sweats are made by jp companies obsessed with repro details/fits, so the majority are going to be really short on the torso with 'huge ribbing'.

    Mine is navy from last year, but fits TTS and is medium weight. It's just slouchy enough and quality is great. Not sure about the current model, but I assume she repeats herself.

    How's the length, and is there any slouch to the neckline? I'd like to pick up a loopwheeled pullover at some point to wear with 501s for maximum dad-steeze, but I don't like showing my midriff or feeling like I'm being strangled.

    My 1490s are like that. Very irritating.

    I have multiple of the leather elbow MMM sweatshirts that are very comfy (I sized up to a 52 for extra comfy). Just had a pair of WvG sweatshirts come in (sized up one again) and very slouchy and comfy

    yeah the suede elbow margielas are really nice but they are fairly short/boxy in the body and def not worth retail.

    Yeah I paid retail for a navy one and then got a black one on deep discount from Ssense the same season. Like 70-80% off. I'm fairly tall though (6'1") and I didn't think they were too short in the body. I did size up to a 52 from my usual 50 though, so maybe that had something to do with it

    Four horsemen sweats probably fit the bill.

    I'm 6'2" and have a 52 (grey) and 54 (white). Both are the same length.

    Think I found what I'm looking for, any reason why I shouldn't from hypebeast? They didn't do nobody wrong here did they?

    The Dana Lee one I have has a pretty loose neckline and normal length. The Strike Gold I have would not be what you want. It's not slouchy at all.
