Sweatshirts have been around since the early 1930s, when football play Benjamin Russell Jr. swapped his itchy, insulating wool game sweater with a pullover made of thick cotton. The style was then adopted by Champion, which popularized it among athletes and by the '90s, the sweatshirt had became a bonafide streetwear staple. Today, they come in a wide range of styles—maybe you're a hoodie guy, maybe you're not. But one type of sweatshirt that every guy should have in his wardrobe is a classic grey crewneck. Which is why you can get them almost anywhere from almost any label making menswear—from a $20 starter option from originator Russell to a designer version by KAPITAL that will set you back nearly 700 bucks. But which one is really worth your money? We tested a handful, wore 'em and washed 'em and wore them some more, and these are the three that stood out.
