It’s getting really cold as we set into the core of winter and Christmas is approaching. It never fails to surprise me how fast December goes by, but here we are with less than two week until Christmas!
As a general rule, I purchase a lot of fandom themed merchandise and something that is becoming increasingly popular this year is fandom Christmas jumpers. So I decided to jump on this bandwagon and get myself a Frozen Christmas jumper from Honcho-SFX.com, a website that sells fandom apparel and accessories. I haven’t ever bought a product like this before, as usually I would opt for a t-shirt, but this presented me with a refreshing change.
First of all, I’d like to mention the shipping. I was pleasantly surprised to receive my order within three days. As a consumer that buys products online frequently, I can say without doubt that for this kind of item, I usually would expect it to have arrived a week later than it did. On top of this, the shipping is free in the UK, I think I speak for most Internet shoppers when I say that in most cases, free shipping takes the longest.
Stitching and detail before washing
I was surprised that on the website a size 12 is classified as a ‘large’ as opposed to the usually classification of ‘medium’ for this size, however I found that the sizing worked well for this product. I say this because I purchased a size 12, a size I would usually get for t-shirts and I anticipated it being too small, but it was actually a very comfortable fit. It was baggier than I expected, which works well for this sort of product.
The quality of the jumper is nothing short of excellent and I say that with complete conviction. The item was exactly as pictured on the website, with the glitter snowflake detail and print. It was relatively warm with just a vest top underneath it. I was worried that the glitter would come off in the wash, but to my surprise it stayed intact in a cold wash (as specified in the care instructions).
Detail after washing
Priced at £25.99, it’s not too expensive and for a product of this calibre, one would usually pay a lot more. Fandom t-shirts are often priced at around £15-£25 for a good quality product that won’t wash , as this is a jumper I would expect it to be this price in comparison.
Overall, I was very pleased with this product and although it is no longer available on the website, I would recommend buying a Christmas jumper from Honcho-SFX as the quality and service I received was brilliant.
