A good hoodie is a classic and essential part of any well-rounded wardrobe.
But finding just the right one isn’t as easy as you may think. We all have had those hoodies that are too short, too long, too thick, or too thin. Or maybe you have hoodies that are too baggy or are made with an itchy material. Regardless of the reason, if you have struggled to find your perfect staple hoodie you have probably been looking in the wrong places. Here we will discuss some of our favorite places to shop for hoodies or sweats. Hoodies are most common for athletic wear or casual wear, so we are going to look at some of the best brands for both. Keep reading to find out more.
When we think of a hoodie or sweatshirt, the first place our minds go is athletic wear. Every popular athletic wear brand makes several variations of a hoodie that can be worn to the gym, on a hike or for any other athletic pursuits you may have. There is no shortage of brands that make fun and sporty hoodies, but here are some of our favorites:
Nike: Nike sweatshirts are a super popular option, and this is for a good reason. Nike sweatshirts are high-quality, ultra-soft, and extremely wearable. They come in several different styles that look great on a wide range of body types. They also often have matching sweats that you can purchase separately or as a set. When it comes to gym wear and sweat sets, Nike has had this market cornered for years.
Gymshark: This brand is all about performance. If you want a sweatshirt that you can wear in the gym, then this brand is for you. Gymshark’s products are all ideal for lifting heavy weights, running long distances and crushing your athletic goals in and out of the gym. Their classic gym hoodies come in a wide range of solid colors and don’t have any intrusive logos plastered on them.
Adidas: Just as iconic as the Nike sweats, Adidas sets also have the same amount of notoriety and dedicated customers. They also come in a wide range of styles with large or small pockets, zip or button closures, and oversized to longline fits. No matter what your style or body type, you will find a hoodie you love here.
The North Face: If you like to take your athletic pursuits outdoors, then a North Face hoodie is what you need. There was a period of time where you couldn’t go anywhere without seeing people in their iconic zip up hoodies and windbreakers. But nowadays the brand is praised for its industry-standard mountaineering gear, so if you are into hiking or outdoor sports, check out The North Face.
If you are looking for sweatshirts or mens graphic hoodies that you can wear just about anywhere, then you want to turn your attention to casual fashion brands. These brands have a moderate to low price point and make clothes that are great for everyday wear. Here are our favorite casual stores to shop for everyday hoodies.
Champion: Champion as a brand has eluded many of us. It went from being a generic brand that you could find in Walmart to a label that people are willing to spend hundreds on. Also is it athletic wear or is it streetwear? It actually started its life as a sportswear brand which was used by American national sports teams for generations. Fashion influencers have taken Champion from a lackluster generic label to one of the most sought-after brands on the market. If you want a hoodie that will make you feel stylish with low effort, look no further.
H&M: Affordable, reliable and easy to find, H&M is always a go-to for fashion basics. The standard hoodie is no exception as H&M always carries a variety of them in every size, shape, color and material you could imagine. If you are looking to get a decent quality product for as little money as possible then H&M is going to be your new best friend.
Zara: A slight step up from H&M in terms of quality and price, Zara is the trendier more fashion forward older sister. But fear not, their hoodie selection certainly isn’t lacking. Zara is also great at putting out matching sets so if you want a pair of sweats to go with your new hoodie, check this store out.
Now that you know where to go, it’s time to go shopping. Take your time to look around and try out some different styles to ensure that you like the fit and feel of your new hoodie. Once you have made your purchase you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you finally have a hoodie that you actually like.
