Review – Her Universe cardigan

I of course had to grab a few items in Her Universe’s Black Friday sale. One of the items I am excited to finally get my hands on is the symbols cardigan. Original retail price was US$40, I paid US$31.50 during the sale. I’m so very glad I bought it when I did, as it seems to have disappeared from the Her Universe website, and out of stock on Thinkgeek. It would be a shame if it has been discontinued, as it was only released mid November last year.

I ordered mine in a size small – it measures approximately 48cm across the chest (underarm to underarm) and 43cm across the lower hem. It is made from 100% cotton, t-shirt weight fabric, more for style than getting warm in winter (which is great as it doesn’t snow where I live). It closes down the front with six black buttons below the v-neck style neckline. The pattern features the Imperial ‘cog’ logo and the Rebel Alliance ‘bird’, printed in white. It doesn’t have a tag at the neckline, with the standard details printed instead. While being a little thinner than I initially expected, the fabric suits the style very well. It is a great top I am very happy to have in my wardrobe – the classic black and white design goes with so many outfits.
