4 Main Reasons Why Hoodies are an Essential Item for Men’s Wardrobes

Posted by Eric Pierce on
No man’s wardrobe is complete without a hoodie. Everyone knows that hoodies are an essential item for men’s wardrobes for many reasons. Below we are going to look at the four main reasons why every man needs a hoodie.

1. A Hoodie is the Ultimate Sweatshirt

A hoodie is comfy and can be worn every day. This is why it tops the list of why men’s hoodies are an essential item in wardrobes. It’s well known that men prefer comfort to looks and, if they could, they would wear sweatpants and sweatshirts all day, every day.

This is why every man’s wardrobe should have at least one hoodie, and possibly two or more one that is casual that they can wear around the house or when running errands, and one that is a bit dressier with no writing or logos that can be paired with khakis for a more polished look.

2. A Hoodie is Versatile

You can wear a hoodie to go to the gym, take the dog out for a walk, hang out with friends, and even to informal staff functions.

A hoodie goes with many items in your wardrobe. For example, a hoodie is perfect to wear to and from the gym. It is just like a sweatshirt so it doesn’t matter if you get it sweaty after a hard workout.

To make a fashion statement, you can wear your hoodie under a denim jacket with Khakis or Chinos to add character. A hoodie can be easily paired with a pair of jeans, a comfy tank top, a tee shirt, or a long-sleeved shirt and sneakers.

When it’s cold, a hoodie can be layered with an outer coat, which makes a hoodie an ideal wardrobe choice year round.

3. Pullover Hoodie or Zipper Hoodie

Along the lines of how versatile hoodies are, but slightly different, are the style choices that come with wearing a hoodie.  Hoodies come in two styles – with or without a zipper.

The more popular choice is pullover hoodies because they were the first to hit the marketplace. Some men just don’t like zippers and are not fond of the bubble that closed zippers sometimes create when they sit down.  As well, if you’re not going to wear a shirt underneath the hoodie, a pullover style eliminates possible itching and irritation from a zipper.

But don’t write off the zippered hoodie just yet, as it is also gaining in popularity because they can be worn zipped up or unzipped, creating two totally different looks. As well, they’re perfect for men who don’t want to mess their hair.

Speaking of hoodies, we can’t forget to mention the hood. This feature also adds to the look and can be worn up or down to create a different look or provide warmth.

4. Hoodie Shopping Tips for Men

When shopping for a hoodie, for a proper fit, get one that is slightly fitted so it’s not too loose or too tight, and make sure the sleeves aren’t too long.
