The Crewneck Sweatshirt

72 reviews
Color: black stripe

That every-single-day sweatshirt, we are mad at the days when this one's in the wash. The classic crew neck, long sleeves, and ribbed hem make for an easy layering piece. The only extra bell and whistle we added is a great fit - keeping this one clean, simple and classic. 
TLDR: Relaxed fit body, dropped shoulders and rib hem.

    Soft, beautiful colour, and fits wonderfully!

    I was so excited when the crewneck got restock and was even more pumped when I got the sweatshirt the next day! Upon unwrapping the package, it was love at first sight. Beautiful colour, SUPER soft, and a good fit!

    so comfortable, but consider sizing up!

    I love this sweatshirt, so cozy + comfortable, however i would consider sizing up if you are +sized, have weight around your mid-section and would like a roomier/more relaxed fit. Length is also great, at 5'10, it's not too short at all. I

    Truly, my favourite top to wear.

    The sweatshirt is my absolute favourite item. I have it in three colours and covet them all. I plan to buy more as new colours I like are added. I have no shame and no self control when it comes to this top. The first one I bought (purple) I worried the top may not be worth the price. It totally is (hence the two extras I’ve bought). I love the fit (not too baggy but nice and comfortably loose) I LOVE the stretch in the material and that it’s thin enough to wear year round. I can’t say enough about it.

    New Favourite sweatshirt

    Got this one for Christmas in black and white stripes and it's my new fav sweatshirt. The medium is the perfect size - slouchy but not too oversized, and looks nice enough for casual days at work. For anyone who is wondering about whether it's worth paying more for basic items like these -- for reference I bought a similar sweatshirt from another retailer recently because it had a fun pattern, but the Franc fabric feels much nicer and sewing quality is superior.

    Love it.

    Bought the grey in a larger size so that it’s a bit roomier. It fits true to Size and super cozy.

    Look beyond the retail price and calculate the estimated cost per wear - this is a much more accurate reflection of an item's price.

    Cost Per Wear For One Month

    Retail price ÷ Your best guess of how many times you’ll wear in a single month = cost per wear for one month.

    Cost Per Wear For One Year

    Cost per wear for one month ÷ How many months in a year you’ll wear it = cost per wear for a single year.

    Cost Per Wear For One Month

    Retail price ÷ Your best guess of how many times you’ll wear in a single month = cost per wear for one month.

    Cost Per Wear For One Year

    Cost per wear for one month ÷ How many months in a year you’ll wear it = cost per wear for a single year.
