    If Gilt ever does a PRPS sale again they sometimes sell a great grey crewneck sweatshirt for 38$

    This is a lot harder than I thought. I was going to get a friend to pickup some Uniqlo sweatshirts but going by Uniqlo.jp measurements, the sleeves are abnormally short. Can anyone confirm Uniqlo NY has the same sleeve measurements, or are they cut longer?

    I'm gonna resurrect this thread 'cause I just went to J. Crew and all the grey sweatshirts sucked. They had a waffle texture to the outside which is unwanted. Anybody have any good suggestions?
    the jcrew sunfaded sweatshirt is pretty spot on imo. [​IMG]

    Thrift stores! My favorite sweatshirt, actually a hooded one, is a Jerzees brand I've owned since 1994 or so (I was in junior high school). Its been washed God knows how many times and feels so soft. No pilling and fits nicer than the bulky, contemporary sweatshirts sold by Gap, ON, athletic brands and the like.

    The Studio D'Artisan one is probably my favorite from online photos, but would obviously need to head by BiG and try that stuff on. [​IMG]

    Thanks! I was trying to figure out if mine was tagged incorrectly. My size medium pit to pit is 23.5" while I was expecting it to be more like 21.5" based on previous seasons.

    I like mine to fit on the slimmer side. I usually wear a size small. Should I go with X-Small?

    I'd try and get measurements, no idea how the new ones fit. For the sweatshirt I bought, it was 22.5" p2p for a size small while medium was 23.5", wish I had known before purchasing.

    Rakuten is your best bet.

    BR sweats are awesome - but for warmer weather, their sister brand Cheswick's sweaters are also very good (9oz, instead of the 12 oz on BRs), and a bit cheaper as well (around $65 to $100 full retail as opposed to the $80 to $110 for BRs).

    Love the SDA sweats too [​IMG] But their sizing is inconsistent from year to year...

    Blackbird just came out with one. It looks pretty nice and for $55 it is definitively affordable. Speak up if anyone bought it!

    I'm an irrational Made-In-US fetishist, and the Blackbird model is, I think, made in China - or, at least, one of the pictures of the thing on the website reveals a "Made In China" tag. Not that I'd expect anything less than legit from Blackbird, but.

    What about the American Apparel version? Sleazebag CEO aside, the t-shirts and basics have always been pretty decent, although maybe not enough to justify their pricetag. They have a sweatshirt that runs like 35 USD, and they're already all about hipster-slim fit.

    Bumping an old thread, but thought people might find this useful: Today is the last day of Land's End 30% off sale. They have a pretty nice gray crewneck sweater for basically $29 w/ free shipping and free returns to a local Sears. I just ordered this one: http://www.landsend.com/pp/CottonDri...0&origin=index Seems like a good price, especially since we're in fall now and everything I've seen is $60+. Anyone know how it compares to the JCrew sweaters? I'll report back when I receive it.
