Love it!!

I love this cardigan. It is super comfy and cozy and the fit is great. I also love the giant pockets! It's great quality and I know I'm going to have it for a long time.

A go-to

I'm in love with Franc's cozy fabric, and this cardigan is perfect to slip on and wear around the house. It is a little more relaxed than I would normally wear out (though colour choice probably makes a difference too), but it's something I wear a lot throughout the week when I need something extra to keep me warm.

Like being hugged by a warm cloud

I got a size smaller than usual and it fits very well with enough coverage everywhere. This cardio is soooo soft and cozy. I was on the fence about whether or not I needed another sweater and I'm glad I decided to buy it. Totally worth it.

Want to love - Just misses the mark

I want to love this cardigan. I want it to be the perfect cardigan and for me, but the quality just misses the mark. I’ve owned this cardigan for two months (since date of purchase) and I’ve worn it probably 4-5 days each week since I’ve purchased. The color is phenomenal (I have the copper) and the fit is absolutely perfect! I’ve washed in cold water, hung to dry, once every two weeks. I am having the same problem as another reviewer where the elastic in the cuff of the sleeve has started to break and poke through. There are elastic ends poking out everywhere on the cuffs. The other issue I’m having is the insane pilling and shedding from the inside of the sweater. Every time I take it off, little piles of fabric are all over the place. My house is covered in little copper pilled fabric balls. I really want to love this one, but for a $100 sweater after less than two months of wear, I am pretty disappointed.

Feels like a cozy hug!

I'm not sure why, but I was blown away by how accurate the product was to the photos. Wonderfully oversized - without being too big - and incredibly comfy. Soft and fleecy on the inside just like the slim jogger pants. You'll love wearing this around the house and out!

Perfect sweater/sweatshirt

So comfortable, sleeves are a good length and love the pockets. If they had more in my size I would purchase them all!

Look beyond the retail price and calculate the estimated cost per wear - this is a much more accurate reflection of an item's price.

Cost Per Wear For One Month

Retail price ÷ Your best guess of how many times you’ll wear in a single month = cost per wear for one month.

Cost Per Wear For One Year

Cost per wear for one month ÷ How many months in a year you’ll wear it = cost per wear for a single year.

Cost Per Wear For One Month

Retail price ÷ Your best guess of how many times you’ll wear in a single month = cost per wear for one month.

Cost Per Wear For One Year
