Promising review: "All right, lemme just tell you guys, I took a gamble on this one: no reviews, coming from a foreign country, and it seemed too cheap to be true. But DAMN am I pleased. This gem is by FAR the most unique piece of clothing I have ever owned and oh my god do I love it. The fabric isn't the BEST quality, but no worse than the s**** you'd get from most chain stores like Kohl's or JC Penney. It's actually damn comfy and lightweight and I really have no major qualms with the fabric overall." —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "I was a little concerned when I ordered this that it was going to look cheap and sloppy, but I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up. It's cute, seems well made (at least, well enough for an inexpensive sweater), and generally higher quality than I'd expected. It's a decent weight, not thin or heavy but normal for a sweater, and quite cozy. It's oversized, but doesn't look frumpy. It looks like the sort of casually stylish oversized sweater that you see on Pinterest all over the place." —Bridget26Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–L).
