As soon as I saw Stewie glaring at me on the Topman website I just had to have this jumper. I am a massive fan of Family Guy and Stewie Griffin is by far the most comedic and adorable character. I know alot of you will of read the above sentense and thought "oh, she must mean Topshop." No, I got it from Topman, and yes i'm a girl, and I don't care if you think that's weird, because Topman sell some pretty decent stuff, lol. This jumper in my opinion is unisex. It is not a lude, cocky type of men's jumper with manly slogans on it about women and beer. It's simply a plain jumper with a large picture of Stewie on it, so I don't see how people can class it as a jumper for men. When I asked my friends if I should get this, they all burst out laughing. "What if you bump into a fit guy and you're both wearing the same top!?" my best friend said. I didn't care, and I bought it as soon as I had a bit of spare cash. The jumper isn't cheap and I forked out £22. The RRP is £28 but as I am a student I got £6 off which seems quite alot but i'm not going to complain! I also got delivery free (you can find codes easily on Google to save you the £4 delivery charge).
This jumper definetly isn't girly. It isn't manly though either, it's pretty much ideal for both sexes. If the print was of Peter or Brian I doubt i'd of bought this, but as I said before, Stewie is definetly my favourite character and I just couldn't resist buying this. The jumper is a nice creamy white colour with a hint of beige, in certain lights it looks like a very light grey. I was quite confused as on the website Topman state that the colour is brown, yet it quite obviously isn't and there is no option to choose a different colour - there is only the white/grey one. On the front of the jumper is a large picture of Stewie. The picture is PVC coated so it is quite 'rubbery' to the touch. It fills most of the jumper and is very eye catching. In the picture Stewie is wearing his usual red dungarees and a yellow jumper. He has a smug, evil genius kind of look on his face and is rubbing his hands together. The picture really reflects how he is on Family Guy (evil baby genius) but doesn't show his 'camp lovable englishman' side lol. Underneath stewie's right leg there is a small scribble of writing which has the illustrator's copyright - it reads 'family guy 2011 (c)'
The jumper's neck is scooped and it has stitch detailing on the bottom of the jumper and the sleeves. The jumper is very lightweight and quite thin which was a let down.. I bought this mainly to wear in winter with jeans or jeggings but as it is so lightweight it doesn't keep me warm so I will definetly have to layer it. The material is 99% Cotton and 1% Polyester. It has a smooth, silky, soft feel to it but it has a strange 'coldness' when I put it on, and it takes time to warm up if that makes sense. Sorry if you have no idea what I mean. As this is a mans jumper and I am only 5'3, it is reasonably long on me (bum length) and the sleeves are a few inches too long. I love this as it gives a nice slouchy, oversized look. Sizes available are XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL. I got the M. I would usually get the S in other men's shops but the Topman sizing isn't very generous or accurate and i've found the M is nice fitting and just baggy enough to get away with - it's not stupidly baggy. This jumper washes well. I wash mine at 30 degrees in the washing machine. I've had no issues with it shrinking or the picture fading and it has stayed soft and comfy. I would definetly reccomend this jumper.
