buy normal size AND one size bigger, Update given.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Russell Athletic Men's Dri Power Fleece Crewneck Sweatshirt (Apparel)
to sum it up...i wear large, i NEVER wear a medium, saw reviews about size so i ordered a large and a medium. the medium fits better and i swim in the large. i'm a guy, 5'10", 175lbs. sportin' a little belly. the only problem i have with my medium is that i find the sleaves to creep up on me at times, like they're a little too short. but wait!... i have VERY broad shoulders and have always had a problem with sleaves creeping up...so i would say disregard this part of the review unless you have really broad shoulders. in summary, i wear a large, NEVER EVER a medium, i bought both and decided the medium fit me better. i already have a previous sweatshirt that i swim in, and am tired of that look, so medium for me!
UPDATE: After one full year of wearing this Medium sweatshirt, I am buying another Medium, only because I need another color for variety.
This sweatshirt fits me perfect. I wear this sweatshirt ALOT and after a year, it's showing no signs of wear, although it probably has thinned out a little, not as thick and fluffy as when it was new. I would say my earlier comment about the sleaves can be disregarded. I made this comment after swimming in XL sweatshirts for years (I apparently thought that was a normal fit). I would say this Medium fits my normally Large upper perfectly.

Im 5'10" 150 lbs male slim build what size do you recommend?
In reply to an earlier post on Feb 7, 2014 5:13:54 PM PST
I'm 5'10", 173 lbs., male, broad shoulders with a small belly there. I normally only wear size Large tops, but with this sweatshirt a Medium fits me perfect. I did buy both to compare, one Large and one Medium. I SWAM in the Large. So, to my disbelief, I am wearing a Medium sweatshirt that fits me perfect. This sweatshirt is the ONLY Medium I own. Oh, did I say?, I SWAM in the Large.

Why do you swim in a sweatshirt?

My abs attract the girls, I did not want the attention on that particular day.

How is the length? Does it run below the waist even after washing? I like longer lengths in sweatshirts.

Length is great for me. I live in these this time of year. I have worn these exclusively for about the last 4 winters. I am wearing one right now that has been washed plenty. I just stood up to check the length so I could offer an accurate description to you. I would say the elastic waistband of the sweatshirt centers around the bottom edge of my belt. This is with a nice comfortable little slack allowed, NOT pulled tight down. I am man, 5'9", 175lbs.
