I read reviews so got a size bigger than I normally wear and wish I'd stuck to my normal size as it's a tad on the baggy side, I'm sure in a thicker material it'd be fine though (as a lot of my size Large hoodies are) but, I imagine after a wash and dry it'll shrink a touch. I'll edit my review if it does, as getting a size bigger would be a good idea then.
The Kangaroo pouch seems very flimsy, and I can see it coming away from the front fairly easily, time will tell I guess, and the string through the hood isn't looped through a stitched tube chamber like 90% of my hoodies are, the string itself just seems like a stock shoelace, has the same thickness as a shoelace and exactly the same length so even something so simple as a string isn't bespokely made for the garment itself.
It looks very nice on and that's what really matters I guess, pink has always looked good on me being dark haired and kinda tanned looking skin, it's just a little disappointing, I had FOTL things in my youth and they almost seemed indestructible and always chunky, high quality material - this seems a drop in their usual quality, but at £12 or so it's hard to complain too much but I will add I've worn a thick, nicely made hoodie with a Union flag on from Primark as a pyjama top for 6 years that's still going strong, and that was £8, so decent quality and low prices can go hand in hand, I also got a very similar one for Christmas from the same store as a replacement, that was £10 and its really chunky and well made, with a zip, thick good cord that's tubed, two side pockets and lots of design on it (clearly more expensive to make yet cheaper to buy)
I'd be quite happy paying £20 for a FOTL hoodie that was the same quality as the ones I remember, cutting costs that are detrimental to the finished product will only lead to losing customers sadly, I'll pay a bit extra if the satisfaction the garment will last is there. Something that costs £20 and lasts for 4 years, or something that's £12 that lasts for a year, it's not a hard choice to make.
In short, colour and style as advertised, slightly let down by quality. Worth a buy if you're not expecting too much.
This did not disappoint!!

This did not disappoint!!
The material thick and cosy, and the hood keeps my head warm when I use the long drawstrings. The hood is slightly smaller than I expected, but it is a snug fit, which is ok.
I am glad I kept this and kept meaning to get around to ordering a zip-up version to give me flexibility.
On the basis of that, I decided to buy more this year, from the same seller. After returning low quality imitations from other sellers on Amazon I thought that maybe TEAM SOUTH WEST Ltd would be selling genuine, good quality ones as before, but sadly that wasn't the case.
Hoodie is thin, low quality. shapeless and very unlikely to be genuine. Also bought t shirts which are similarly low quality, where previously they'd been top notch.
I don't think these are genuine. Either that or Fruit of the Loom are making stuff to completely different patterns and specifications. Either way, I was very disappointed and won't be buying from this company again.
Does anyone know a seller who is currently selling actual, proper quality Fruit of the Loom stuff on Amazon at the moment? If so, a recommendation would be handy.
