The 10 Best Hoodies
at Any Price

A classic that continues to get better and better

Just a few years ago, a hoodie was something you threw on when you didn't care or wanted to show some love for your college or the team you follow. But times have changed and the hooded sweatshirt is a bonafide essential these days.

It's not hard see how this happened. Athletic ware got cooler and menswear loosened up. And anyone who's worn a hoodie will tell you it's a ride-or-die wardrobe staple. It will never really go out of style, or out of season, for that matter. But during the breezy days and chilly nights of autumn, there's nothing more comforting than pulling on a relaxed sweatshirt. You want something that looks cool enough to hang with whatever you're already wearing. It's simple, yes, but not basic. It's a challenge that designers seem to be running with, aiming to excel at everything from the fit and fabric to the tiny, but distinguishable, details.

While they may be understated, you can still make a statement with your hoodie—be it a uniquely textured material or simply a bold color choice that will contrast and complement the rest of your wardrobe. Wear them for the fleeting time of year that is “hoodie and shorts” season and then layer them under jackets all fall and winter.
