Review – Her Universe X-Wing cardigan

Her Universe released two women’s Star Wars cardigans at Celebration Anaheim – the Imperial High Commander cardigan, and the X-Wing cardigan – and of course I had to have both! The X-Wing cardigan was first previewed back in March, and has been available directly from Her Universe since it’s release – it is currently available in all sizes (XS to 5X), and is priced at US$50.00 each (US$52 for 3X, US$54 for 4X and US$56 for 5X).

 Her Universe - X-Wing cardigan (back)

The navy blue cardigan features two X-Wings embroidered on the front, and a small red Rebel Alliance symbol on the right sleeve. The cardigan’s colour is a lovely dark blue – though it photographs a little differently, my close up photo of the X-Wing embroidery shows the true colour better. The embroidery is very nicely done – each X-Wing on front measures approximately 9cm wide and 4.5cm high, while the Rebel Alliance symbol on the right sleeve measures approximately 2cm high. The cardigan features eight buttons down the front – they have an opalescent appearance which is quite pretty.

I bought mine in size S – it measures approximately 47cm across the chest (underarm to underarm), approximately 45cm from front neckline to hem, and approximately 34cm across the lower hem. The sleeves are 3/4 length, which really suits this style. The garment tag notes the fabric is 78% cotton, 22% nylon – nice and soft with a good amount of stretch, definitely thicker than the earlier Symbols cardigan (which was made from t-shirt fabric). I am so happy to see that this is still available from Her Universe, it’s a great addition to any Star Wars fan’s wardrobe.
