I live in sweatshirts for most of the year (my house is at 8000+ feet) and have tried the WalMart Hanes brand, the quality of which has steadily deteriorated. The latest iteration, "Now Softer Than Ever", pills with the first wearing. The cuffs stretch out of shape immediately... very disappointing! I also buy Russell brand sweatshirts which, while a heavier cloth than Hanes and not as susceptible to pilling, also have loose cuffs which bothers me. Jerzees are a nice heavy sweatshirt but these also have loose cuffs. I have several older Jerzees with nice tight cuffs... are loose cuffs some fashion trend with which I am unaware? I have not had these sweatshirts long enough to attest to their durability but the older ones (6+ years) wear like iron... the colors are, to say the least, vibrant!
