    NOT WORTH IT. DON'T BUY IT.

    I haven't worn it since washing it. Afraid to. I wore it once. One of the knots in the hood string came undone hanging in my closet. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone really.

    Woah, they changed materials? Mine was legitimately, for reals a real thick hoodie. How’s the screen printing on this new version?

    Hey, what's wrong with thumb holes? My black NIN hoodie has them and I kinda like it.

    I don't use my thumbholes but it's a nice reminder of how awesome 1999 was.

    The thumbhole pullover hoodie they also sold at the outlet store or whatever has a better printing job than the thick Manhattan hoodie. The pullover is thin, like a jersey. It has a 'media hole' in the pullover pocket & a pocket inside that, while advertised as a "mp3 player pocket" it's too small to even put my cell phone in. I don't have a giant cell phone, a Galaxy S9. Which is what people listen to music 21 years in the future, their smartphone with a 400gb media card, we don't carry around a second mp3 player from 1999. I guess you might be able to put a single USB flash drive in the pocket.

    FWIW any nin.com hoodie (I've bought 2 as of recent, the pullover with the grey NIN logo, and the preorder Manhattan Project, if you're keeping track) costs more than a new Adidas or Nike hoodie ($54 to ship in a bag that will be half ripped open when you get it-speaking from person experience) with lower quality materials/printing. I can't recommend either one for the cost. After spending over $100 on NIN hoodies, I've been cold as shit this winter.

    The pullover is 'wearable' but as others have stated, it's not warm & has useless shit that doesn't work or isn't necessary all over it. The screenprint is a good quality, but I can't say the product was well conceived. I wouldn't buy it again if I knew it was this thin, and the inner pocket was so small (it's about the size of a credit card) that it rendered itself and the the media hole useless.

    The Manhattan Project hoodie is absolute trash. Local bands have better screen printing on their merch. It just sits in the back of my closet because I'm afraid any heat from my body or washing it will further deteriorate the dogshit ink that they used for the print. It looks tacky. Like spraypaint. The two hoodies are printed in different countries. This one is already starting to crack and fade. I've worn and washed it once. I regret buying it at all.

    To be fair, pockets on a normal pair of jeans aren't even deep enough for a lot of cellphones. The iPhone 8+ is 6.2 inches (look like the S9 is 5.8) and stops right at the top double-stitch of a pocket.

    That's wonderful, thanks for letting me know. Never owned a pair of jeans, never will, hate how they feel on my human skin. I recommend some nice comfortable slacks with good pockets that your phone won't fall out of.

    Also, the size of your jeans pockets doesn't make either hoodie worth the purchase.

    I think that one is a bootleg. I've seen some similar to this with added and missing elements.

    Had it for as long as i remember and i've never saw another one since so yeah i think so too but it is really nicely made. Got it around the same time i got a violator sweatshirt. Hard to tell where it comes from (no labels etc)..

    I know of two of these. There's a guy out of Japan who has one. It has a red interior and lacks the NIN logo on the sleeve. His has a tag that's cut in half, but lists that it was made in Britain. The other is owned by an American collector (I think) and its basically the same minus the tag.

    Yours is different because it does have the NIN logo on the sleeve and the different color interior. Not sure how that design was developed but I thought it would have made a good looking hoodie if it didn't have all the text, just the art and NIN logo.
