Way too big!
on November 27, 2011
I ordered two of these for my husband, who wears a 2XL in most anything in a tee, shirt, or sweater, or sweatshirt (Hanes, Fruit of the Loom), or polo shirt, (Eddie Bauer, Lands End, Walmart) - in cotton, 100 percent or not.
But these Russell Athletic Men's Dri Power sweatshirts in a 2XL are HUGE - not just one size too big, but looks like they are at least a 4 or 5XL - I've never seen that size, but according to folks who wear that big a size, this would fit them! Even washing in warm water and drying on high heat didn't faze these shirts. Sent them back for a refund - less postage, of course. Amazon Prime just may allow me free shipping for my returns. I hope so. This had to be something out of the "irregular" pile of sweats.
So, if you are considering ordering this sweatshirt, be sure to order at least one size down - at least in the 2 to 5 XL's or however high they go. Other than the size, the colors are deep and rich (ordered a black and a red) and the workmanship is flawless. Material is soft and doesn't pill. Just the sizing is off. Rather than taking a chance on an XL for husband, I just sent back for a refund - and hopefully a refund of my postage, too!
