Disappointed with the sleeves and fit!
I was really excited about this sweatshirt, but sadly it's a return for me. The red is beautiful, and the torso is a nice length. Like another reviewer, however, I am 5'8'' and I have extremely long arms, and the sleeves were way too long on me. They just looked very bunchy and messy. While I don't want a lounging around sweatshirt to be fitted, it's not in keeping with Oiselle's usual attention to just-the-right fit! I also found the seaming to be oddly placed on the arms and sides, and it runs really, really big (I ordered my usual size). It looks similar to the power on pullover, which I love, and I was expecting the fit to be the same.

The Perfect Sweatshirt
I absolutely LOVE this sweatshirt. It's cozy and warm, and it lives up to its name of being classy. I've worn it to work a few times, and my colleagues always comment on how much they like it.
The fit is great—the torso length is comfortable and the extra long sleeves are wonderful. The sweatshirt is heavy, which I love, because it feels like a hug.
I absolutely recommend it!

Crazy long arms!
Love the look of this style but unfortunately I will have to return as the arms are comically too long (and I am 5'8 so can only imagine how this would work for a shorter person). Even folding the cuffs and trying various ways of pushing up the sleeves I couldn't find a way for this to work. I hope this style will come out again slightly redesigned as I love the fabric!
- Beautiful color, overall style is great
- Arms are too long

Lovely fabric, terrible sizing
I *really* wanted to love this sweatshirt. Any time I can wear comfy but polished leisure-ware, I'm all in. I love the look of it, the material, the color, but when I put it on, I'm consumed by it. It looks like I'm wearing my husband's sweatshirt, it's WAY big. Unfortunately, I took the tags off before trying it on (my fault), otherwise I would have sent it back and ordered a smaller size, like maybe 2 sizes down, it's that big. It's odd because I have large sized other O sweatshirts and they fit well. Usually a 6 in O bottoms and 10 in O tops.
