Rivet & Thread Distressed Half-Zip Sweatshirt

Rivet & Thread Distressed Half-Zip Sweatshirt is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cute, distressed and casual. Love this! Perfect blend of cute and comfy. Great with white tank, tee or shirt underneath. Soft and distressed darling sweatshirt. I went one size up as the fit is short for me in length. It depends on how you want the look to go. Great quality and color, the zip in the front dresses it up, awesome find!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love Distressed is really hard for me but I had to have this. I do not buy much color but am really enjoying the red. I love most things vintage or has a retro vibe and this is my past!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfortable and flattering!! I bought this sweater to be a casual and comfortable weekend top, but after trying it on the fit was so flattering and stylish I literally wear it everywhere. The round neck with the half zip adds a nice unique pop to the sweater and the red colour is so deep and gorgeous!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from really cute! I'm 5'0 and 90 lbs, and I got a small and it fits perfectly - still fits but loose enough to lounge in. My only problem with this sweater is the price. I personally did not buy it for myself, which is good because I never would have. The quality is average, nothing superb worth the horrible price tag. It's literally just cotton and a zipper, super cute though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from super distressed and really short I loved the color on this as a deeper red that would be perfect for spring and fall; however, I simply could not justify keeping this one. It was definitely more "distressed" than what appeared online - the one I received had full holes on one of the sleeves. This made it a lot more casual than what I was looking for. I was also disappointed that it was not a baggier fit. I sized up hoping for a looser and longer fit, but it was still shorter than I prefer. I'm 5'3", so I would guess it would be particularly short on taller ladies. Overall for the price, it just was not worth it. If you can find it on sale and only plan on wearing it very casually, then it might be worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from color is less bright than seems online and there are many more distressed holes The fit is very good but the sweatshirt is not really what it appears. There are far more holes than i would have realized from the picture on line, the red is less red than it looks in the picture, and perhaps most relevant the zipper opening is not what it appears either. The picture on line shows it with a shirt underneath that makes it seem the zipper and collar opening fit and look different than they actually are. So its very nice quality but be sure its what you want.
