Not the same as last year's. Not even close when it comes to quality in my opinion. Not as thick, not as soft, style is slightly different (not as nice or classic looking). Had I known, I wouldn't have bought one set, let alone three. They are using the same product number and it's NOT the same product - Which is a concern as I simply look at my old order and reorder in the new size. These are also MORE expensive than last year's style. I won't be purchasing these again and I'll also be more cautious of any purchase in the future, given they are using the same product numbers but aren't offering the same products associated with those numbers.
I ordered a couple of items for my niece. My order shipped quickly, and arrived within 10 days. All of the items were great quality. I would definitely order from here again!
