I generally prefer a higher thread count, but who cares when the sheets are this stylish? I purchased this set for my teen son and he loves them. They look great with the matching duvet set and decorative pillow. Comfortable, without that "cheap sheets" feeling. I washed them and they fit well on a tall, pillow-top mattress. After much internet shopping, I was glad he selected this set and I was glad Overstock carried all the items. Thanks!
