Hoodie without the hood please?

Can you find me a hoodie without a hood? Need a full-zip sweatshirt, preferably black and available in women's 2X or men's XL. All I see in my searches are hoods (HATE THE HOOD) or zippers that go down like four inches from the neck. Please help!

Basically I have this awesome, buttery-soft, fancy black zippered sweatshirt that I got from Lands' End several years ago. It has a collar, but no hood. It has served me well, but has recently developed a hole in the right elbow, so I need a replacement. Lands' End does not currently sell a sweatshirt like this.
Note: I am also somewhat willing to consider non-sweatshirt-based options that would be in a similar style. The fabric has to be soft, though - I once had a scrub top thing in this format but the fabric was scratchy and the cuffs were way too tight. I have thought of using a jean jacket but that seems to be too much like a real jacket and not particularly soft.
It needs to be able to withstand my abusive laundry practices - nothing that requires cold water, low dryer heat, hand wash, or dry clean.
I do NOT want a real jacket. This is mostly for wearing indoors as I sit at my desk at work. A primary function is to offer me pockets, since several skirts and dresses I have do not offer a place to keep my cell phone with me at all times, which is a bit of an OCD thing with me.
So essentially I need a hoodie without the hood, and my google-fu is failing me. Can you please help point me in the right direction?
