Great hoodie!

This is a great hoodie. It's hard to find such a good hoodie at this price point. Fits well with whatever you want to wear it with. The french terry is fantastic. Such a good buy!

One very important part of clothing is the fit, even the most beautiful clothes will look frumpy if not tailored properly. This one elevate a simple hoodie that fit so perfectly. It gives me confidence and it looks great!
