In October my daughter visited me and commented on how much she liked my towels -- Vera Wang's Simply Vera line from Kohl's. I'd had the towels for several years and they were still soft and substantial.
I decided to buy her a set for Christmas, but when I went to the Kohl's website I saw that recent reviews of the towels were much less enthusiastic than earlier reviews. Apparently the specs have been changed and the current line is much lower in quality than earlier versions.
I then went to Overstock and saw the 900 GSM Egyptian Cotton towels which had great past and present reviews. I ordered them for my daughter and she loves them.
Next step is to order a set for myself.
