This purchase did not disappoint! Bought the toque to proudly represent my country of birth & support an awesome Toronto boutique shop I had seen on CTV News Toronto a while back. Was pleasantly surprised by the amount of warmth preserved around my head wherever the toque covered, and it kept my ears nice and toasty. Purchased a few more to represent my City & the neighbourhood district I grew up in, and got one for my cousin who grew up in Somerset, NJ. Totally worth the $$!
