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

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?

Any recommend decent quarter zip pullover sweatshirts?
Ideally a little boxy but not too much arm underhang

How do Buzz Rickson compare to RMC? My RMC is just too short for me but a size up is too big.

Reigning Champ.

Well made
Good fit, crewneck isn't mega wide like some.
Outer stitch on the arms a nice touch.
Pricing reasonable in a I spilt sauce from my burger down my top and isn't doesnt matter so much because it didn't cost SLP money way

Want to spend big on a navy sweater, any decent heavy weight without the horrible short boxy fit?
