Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Like Coke Classic, the original Masonic hoodie was so much better. I am so mad at you North Face! I own four of these. The first one I bought was perfect! The fabric, the thumb holes, the slender sleeves, the ruched pockets flattered my torso in exactly the right way. Actually looks better on me than on the models who are too stick straight or low hipped to,pull this jacket off which is great for a petite, slightly curvy, high hipped gal like me! So cute! But they have gradually taken away nice features. The fabric on the other three I own is not consistent. One pills badly. Another is chunkier fabric which makes the lines less sleek. They have now eliminated the thumb hole on the sleeve and changed the pocket styling...no longer a straight empire line at top of pocket, now it is this curved line that looks like Yogi Bear's stomach or something. It is still the best thing out there for me at this point, but I am buying under protest! Drats! Bring back Masonic Classic!!!
