Rated 1 out of 5Â by NancyJ YOU RUINED MY FAVORITE SWEATSHIRT!
Oh, the humanity! I purchase a bunch of these sweatshirts every 2-3 years, so it was with gleeful anticipation that I completed my traditional Hanes Ultimate Cotton sweatshirt purchasing rite this year. I couldn't wait to snuggle into the warm, fleecy goodness I've become accustomed to. I looked forward to once again slobbing around the house on chilly days in the tunic-length (on my average-height female frame) sweatshirt that has become a staple in my super-casual winter wardrobe. So it was with shock and dismay that I tried on this year's batch of Ultimate Cotton sweatshirts and discovered...they're so much THINNER than usual! Not nearly as fleecy! They're SHORTER!! My head is still reeling from the emotional trauma wrought by the deliberate desecration of my favorite sweatshirt. Hanes should pay for my therapy bills; it's going to take years to recover.
What it boils down to is this: The Ultimate Cotton sweatshirt is now on par quality-wise with the eight dollar sweatshirts you can buy at that very popular big box store notorious for exploitative labor practices. I don't normally advocate shopping there, but if you've barely got two cents to rub together, don't waste your money on the Hanes sweatshirt.
P.S. The royal blue and deep forest ones aren't even soft! And they're 2" shorter than the deep red and maroon ones.

I always buy XL shirts. These shrank so much when I washed them I can't wear them now.

This used to be a good sweatshirt, now it is just a cheap piece of junk.I think Hanes is also misrepresenting its quality as 10 oz. fleece. You get fleeced when you buy it.

Was happy with the quality but measurement for length did not hold true after washing. Have a tall torso and this is no longer comfortable as far as length. Otherwise good for the price.
