This high quality fabric does not shrink very much. The model wearing the shirt above is 5'10 195 Lbs, and the shirt is an XL that has been washed already. The body length shrinks about 2" and the chest only shrinks about 1/2". The sleeves are not banded and provide a comfortable fit
The chest sizes above are from armpit to armpit on one side. These are mens cut.Chest sizes can be confusing for sweatshirt sizing. Keep in mind that your suite size or shirt size does not really relate to sweatshirt sizes. Suit jackets and dress shirts are made to lay flat against the body. Sweatshirts are loose and comfortable fitting, and will have much larger dimensions than suits.
We recommend on the 1st washing, to wash warm, and lay flat to dry. Your cotton sweatshirt will dry in a few hours. This will control the shrinkage during the 1st washing cycle. When worn, the fabric will "relax" and give back about 1/2 what was lost in the shrinkage. The sweatshirt will only go through this shrinkage cycle one time. High heat will dry out cotton fabric. We recommend laying flat to dry your heavy cotton sweatshirt.
Very narrow and loose fitting neck. We made this neck so comfortable that you will not even feel it.
Hemmed bottom sleeve with no band.
