Hello my lovely people! There’s arguably no piece of clothing that carries as much history as the hooded sweatshirt. The most important thing is fit. If the body is too billowy then you look like a weekend dad. And you can’t layer it without ending up like the Michelin Man. Look for raglan sleeves, which have a seam that descends diagonally from the collar to your armpit, rather than where your shoulder meets your arm and not too much elastic in the hem. That way it hangs, rather than bunching. You also need to pick the right fabric. Athletes appreciated the hoodie’s jersey construction, because the cotton traps air but also absorbs sweat, to balance your temperature from warm-up to flat out.Even if you’re wearing yours to flex in the street just like I am in the above post, not the gym, the same characteristics will help tackle changeable weather.
