Doesn't look as high quality as I expected for Tisseron robes

I bought this robe as a surprise birthday gift for my husband in two weeks. I was expecting a high quality and luxurious bathrobe. I was disappointed as I opened the package. It came in a simple plastic bag, with no new product tag on the robe and the robe was not well folded inside the bag, which made me think it might be a returned item! I took the robe out for inspection and saw lots of fuzzies (I mean lots and you cannot miss it!) inside and outside the robe. I laid it on my bed and lint rolled for half an hour to get the majority fuzzies off and it made a mess on my bed too. I have not washed it yet and will comment on that later.
decent quality: you get what you pay for...

This seems to be a good-quality robe. It isn't absolutely top-notch, but it isn't priced that way either. The fabric is suitably heavy, and the windowpane stripes are woven in, not printed on. (The fabric feels heavier than the 14-oz spec, and overall feels slightly heavier than the specified 3.8 lbs.) The terry is short-loop on the inside and short cut-plush on the outside. (One thing missing from the photo is that horizontal stripes are "rope" jacquard, i.e. a sort of diagonal sewn-on repeating pattern; however the vertical stripes are woven into the fabric, i.e. colored plush/loop in the ground. I think it's a nice-looking detail, but some stickler might call it a cheap-out because that's the "easy" way to warp/weft it.) The only thing that makes it not first-class is the pattern matching: On a first-class robe, the stripes would be exactly the same distance from the cuffs on left & right sleeves, and the plaid would match the body the same way at the left/right sleeve drop seam. This one is second-class, i.e. it doesn't match those places, but the lines *are* straight & level across the body, and *do* go straight down the sleeves. The match of the left & right sides across the front of the body is within 1/2", so it looks decent. One reviewer complained about the fluff when washing, and I haven't done that yet. The description here is missing the detail you would want to choose between medium & large -- using your height for robe selection doesn't work if maybe you're a maxi-length lover. Here's more detail, from the manufacturer: "All Medium robes are 48" long with 56" sweep, top of sleeve length 23", shoulder seam to seam 23". All Large robes are 52" long with 60" sweep, top of sleeve length 24", shoulder seam to seam 24"." Measure the robe you're wearing now and you'll know which size you want. For the price at 72 clams, I'd say it's an acceptable value: I'll order another one. But the pattern mis-match tells you why most robes you'll buy in this price range are solid-color, or solid w/contrast shawl collar. (For example, Lands' End is about the same price. Better quality is available at your nearest Pratesi or Frette store... but stab yourself over their price! Most department store robes are all solid-color, and now you know why.) My only complaint is that Wayfair hasn't got a clue about clothes being tax-free in their home state of Mass.
