Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill Runs a size large
I'd been looking for a grey sweatshirt for a while and settled with J. Crew because I knew the quality and fit would be good. I'm about six feet and 160 pounds and I usually go with a medium in the slim sizes. I tried a medium in this and it was far too baggy, so I sized down to a small. It actually fits very similarly to the medium slim. I was worried about it being too short in the sleeve and body but since the style is a bit over-sized anyway it was still long enough. If you're looking for a slimmer fit I'd recommend sizing down.
As for quality, some of the seams aren't finished great but overall it seems solid. The fabric is incredibly soft as well, and I was really happy that it was 100% cotton instead of a blend.

Excellent item, well made and great style.
Regarding sizing: I am 6', medium build (40 inch chest), with reasonably long arms and usually fit well in J.Crew's regular and slim Large tops, although I tend to find the slim shirts are a little tight on me. I ordered this sweater in a Large (regular) and found it quite baggy in the body. If you want a real casual/lounging look this is fine, but I found going for the Medium (tall) gave me a better fit in the body (almost similar to the J.Crew slim fit sweaters/jumpers), and still gave me good sleeve and body length.

This is a great sweatshirt. A wardrobe staple I've been looking for. I'm 6'3", 200 pounds, and the Large fit me perfectly. The material is very soft, and the quality is great. I'd definitely recommend this.

I was searching for something like this for a long time. It fits perfectly, and is very soft. I'm sort of afraid to wash it, but i love it. it's a must have. Looks great over a white shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Julie Great retro sweatshirt
I bought this for my husband. He loves retro clothes so this is just perfect for him. It can be hard to find a high quality sweatshirt without labels, names or any identifying information. So he will wear his old sweatshirts (or anything for that matter) until it falls apart. This is a great sweatshirt that he loves and I won't be embarrassed of. Thanks, Crew! One less argument! A great sweatshirt and marital harmony - a bargain at any price!
