Best men's hoodies in 2022

There will always be debates on what some of the most foundational garments are in someone's closet, and the hoodie is arguably at the top of my list. No matter your interests, financial status or personal style, everyone looks good and feels good in one. Like a sturdier version of a trusty T-shirt, they go with everything and can be worn year-round, but now's the perfect time to layer with them. Since the autumn breeze is in full effect, pulling on a denim or leather jacket over a hooded sweatshirt is always a go-to style move. Other ways of styling would be underneath a topcoat, or even a thick Cowichan cardigan sweater—my only advice on what not to wear hoodies with is underneath blazers, this was such a horrific way to style them back in the early 2000s—it shouldn't have happened then and let's never bring it back, okay?

About ten years ago, it seemed like every great hoodie was made with French terry cotton—and they still are today. But vintage-inspired heftier fabrics like 14 ounce fleece, sturdier wool and loopwheel cottons suddenly feel very cool. There are also more contemporary takes like color-blocking, garment-dyed styles and front-split pockets (which is actually an ode to vintage hoodies as opposed to the often-seen kangaroo pockets). A garment like the hoodie has been around for a long time, so it's seen many iterations from slim-fit styles to boxy streetwear silhouettes, from heavy-duty fleece to refined knits. Your task now is to find the one that suits your tastes. And, luckily, it's my job to help steer you in the right direction.

According to ASKET, The Knickerbocker Knitting Company, later becoming Champion, created the first hoodie in the 1930s. The University of Michigan noticed the durability and functionality of Knickerbocker's undergarments and invited the company in 1934 to create the first collegiate hooded sweatshirt for the university.
