Distressed SE Scuba - Too Distressed for $128



I happened to see this Scuba in the store this afternoon. SoCal has only gotten the Plum, Lilac, Wish, and Black so far so this was an internet return. I could see why after I studied it. The distressed edges of the hoodie were truly distressed not just unfinished. The worst area was right at the top of the Luluemon logo in the front - the part formed by the ribbed material where it's joined together by the zipper. It looked like someone rubbed the ribbed material until a hole was formed. I can only imagine that area getting worse with wear. I can't believe this hoodie is $29 extra for a design that will only get nastier and more worn with age. I am so not a fan of this design.

i tried this on today and my first thought when i put it on was omg what happened to this hoodie, it looked like it was falling apart. Also, the pink piping along the arms made them very restricting.

Thanks for putting this detailed description of this scuba. I was wondering why it was more expensive than the other scubas. Based on your description, I'm better off getting the $98 ones!

I tried one of these on, can't figure out why it's $128. It looks like it will come apart easily. Also really dislike the zipper pulls.

I bought a hoodie like this about 3 months ago but returned it. I didn't realize that it was the distressed ones but I could see the distressed areas getting worse with wear. So glad I'd returned it it would have bothered me-like I bought a defective hoodie.
