These were not my first choice, but were a compromise as I'm the only female in my household. The top portion is slightly plushy and snow white and the piece of material to hang them is thick and sturdy. The grey portion of the stocking is a nice color and the personalization looks really nice. The stockings were well packaged and arrived quickly with no issues. Will definitely order more if/when our family grows. Excellent mashup of being a good choice for men, women, and kids alike!
