Quality & Use
Understanding that the point of the “hoodie” is to fit tighter and show off the physique a bit, it fits about how one would expect. It’s definitely not a vanity size by any means. After the first wear following a wash, the fabric stretches out slightly (like all shirts) so it’s not quite as constricting as straight out of the dryer, which is the fit I’m talking about.
The drawstrings are very heavy and thick rope-like material, and the hood interior is not only vibrant, but the same smooth material. Seams aren’t bulky or thick, yet are quite strong. The material itself isn’t very thick though, which would impact the style badly anyway, and is more of a slightly heavier long sleeved shirt than it is an actual sweatshirt.
The red color was very vibrant, just as the pictures showed, which was surprising since the colors are rarely as bright as the model pictures for anything. The gray color was the slightly darker grey as pictured as well. The material was very nice and soft, clearly of good quality, and a bit stretchy. It has a slightly satiny-silky-smooth feel to it that does a good job outlining ridges and bumps of whatever’s underneath when pulled taut.
It feels very good on the inside either with an undershirt or without, and the seams don’t bind, chafe, or constrict under active movement. It doesn’t appear it was the intent, but the Grin Bear Sleeve Hoodie fabric feels to be slightly moisture wicking as well, though the liner of the hood and the draw strings will absorb and retain moisture. The draw strings are also quite long, almost half again what appears in the pictures (at least for size Medium), but they tend to cling to the front of the shirt ever so slightly so they aren’t swinging around all the time, but not so tightly that the static cling is obvious to an observer.
