I purposefully get sweatshirts too big for me, and this one is great! I get many compliments. It warm but will let a breeze through, which is probably good for working out. Also, it does come with the white tie string, but I take them out because they annoy me.
The design looks exactly as pictured! I was really excited to receive it.
For the most part, it fits as expected (I ordered one size larger than I usually do just in case, which was a good move). Unfortunately, even with the larger size the sleeves were a bit short. My only other concern was that there were several loose threads. I plan to wear this hoodie often
