Throwback Sweatshirt

Throwback Sweatshirt is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweatshirt! This sweatshirt is super comfortable, has throwback style, and fits in a cute way that doesn't make you look slouchy (which you would think is the challenge with a sweatshirt). I love it and am very happy with my purchase. I get compliments on it when I wear it. I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color! Great color and flattering style. I actually ended up buying two of these cause I wear them so much. Definitely recommend! Just make sure you line dry them instead of putting them in the dryer. They shrink up A LOT if you accidentally do put it in the dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to My Closet This sweatshirt is relaxed and totally comfortable (despite it being rather thin and not lined with any fleece). Because the garment is relatively thin for a sweatshirt, it's still pretty flattering (and yes, it still keeps me warm). It's slightly box shaped/a little shorter than your average sweatshirt, but once again, remains flattering. Like most of Madewell's clothing, all of the tailoring feels very intentional. I can dress this up easily with nice shoes and a little jewelry, or wear it casually pretty much anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staple This is a thin sweatshirt, and definitely does not have that soft, cozy sweatshirt material inside. But it is very cute, and very comfy. I will wear it until it falls apart, for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sweater I bought both the blue and coal colors and they are nice. I wash them on delicate cycle then let them air dry flat and they held their shape. Overall a great piece to wear when you want some comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy and flattering! I bought this in blue and it is such a bright, beautiful color. I am about 5'5, hourglass, 32DD, with a somewhat short torso, and I was afraid this would look boxy and unflattering. On the contrary, it has a really nice shape to it, while still being a relaxed and comfortable fit. I got it in medium even though I often wear a small in Madewell tops. The material is a bit on the thin side, so it isn't super warm and I don't know how it will hold up over time, but for right now I love it and am wearing it every chance I get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, lightweight This is more like a thin sweatshirt that should be worn as a shirt. (Don't expect a heavy, second layer-type sweatshirt.) So comfortable, though, and very lightweight. Perfect for lounging around in at home or running errands. Have purchased it in both colors and I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart eyes all day long I love this sweatshirt. It's a little cropped, a little fitted, and a whole lot of comfortable. Its the perfect vintage worn in sweatshirt, but has a modern fit, so you don't look like you borrowed your dad's sweatshirt from the 80's. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy Cool Just got this on sale in the charcoal color and love it! Received compliments already :). It's perfect for LA winter. I usually wear a small at Madewell but ordered a Medium based on other reviews. Fits perfectly. It is a little shorter than my other sweaters, but it's not cropped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute old school sweatshirt - but beware washing it I really like this sweatshirt, it's lightweight and it classic. I got the black in an XS, my usual size. This sweatshirt does run small and is short like on the model. I even ordered another one in a Small, so it would fit a bit bigger on me. However, when I washed them, they shrunk considerably. But I do love this sweatshirt for its simplicity.
