Ok, the sweatshirt quality was good. It's not too thick, but it's pretty warm. I'm female, 5'4", 147lbs, and I purchased a size small. It fit well, except that it's a little tight on the hips, but not anything too obvious. I do have one small complaint, and that is that the 'empire logo' is not etched or a patch, it's simply a stamp and it's blurry/faded. I'm not sure how I feel about that but otherwise it's great.
