What's the best sweatshirt on the High Street, is it Uniqlo for the money or Gap, any recommendations. Looking at spending no more than £40.00

Gap do a good quality washed/vintage sweats with no branding, heavy weight etc., but they're more fitted unlike the high end Americana brands LVC etc that are super boxy.
Navy one in store now is great

Edit this one, darker irl http://www.gap.co.uk/browse/product.do?pid=000199762001&vid;=1&preferredLocale;=en_GB&kwid;=1&sem;=false&sdkw;=sun-wash-crew-sweatshirt-P000199762&sdReferer;=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gap.co.uk%2Fproducts%2Fgap-sweatshirts-for-men.jsp

Uniqlo good too just all my navy ones faded to purple over the years with washing.

Uniqlo, half your budget too, not perfect tho.

Got a Levis Skateboarding (I know) sweat recently, it's really good, heavy as hell and great fit, just removed the label on the front which wasn't exactly offensive to begin with

The quality of American Apparel jersey is impressive for the money.

AA hoodies and sweats are great beaters
sizing is nuts though in my experience sometimes tiny other times huge

Champion Reverse Weave - just got one of these. Any experience in shrinkage? Also, will the insane amounts of fluff die down once washed?
