Many cropped sweatshirts are boxy and functional but certainly not stylish and makes a short person like me feel, well, like a box. Not so with this hoodie. The quality is top notch. The material is soft and comfortable and a perfect weight alone or with different weight short or long sleeve tees year-round with SF Bay Area weather. Comes out of the washer like it's new. The style is really awesome - it drapes beautifully and the slightly lower back adds to the flattering look. I loved it so much, I decided to order a 2nd one.
