Follow up review
This is a follow up review from January 4.
As I stated in my previous review I love all things Carhartt, and basically wear nothing but them. But sadly hated this sweatshirt more than any item of clothing Ive ever bought in my life.
One of the things I hated was the stupid security pocket, but after having it removed, it was the one thing that got better about this coat.
The sleeves ,even after ripping the stitches were just unbearable, literally like daily torture.
The hood, just didn't fit, period.
One thing I didn't note, or notice in my first review was the size. I read multiple reviews saying how much larger it is. I noticed the first day, its much longer, which was a plus as it covers more or my back, but in fact after time you really notice wow this thing is just totally over sized in the shoulders, arms, and waist, its heavy as heck, and your constantly pulling tucking, adjusting.
The one good thing was the water repellent, but I seriously wonder how long that would've last. The reason I say would've last? This coat made it exactly 1 month, I just couldn't take it any more, it literally was unwearable by me. Please see picture of coat...
Luckily Ive went back to wearing my thermal lined Carhartt sweatshirt. But really soon it will be too warm to wear it. If any of you from Carhartt are reading this PLEASE bring back a quality sweatshirt, in Carhartt brown I can actually wear again like I have for AGES, warm weather is a coming!!
