Has any item of clothing had as much stick as the humble hoodie? Comfortable, practical and – as our examples prove – rather cool, we don’t need politicians to convince us to hug a hoodie…we’re positively embracing them! Here are our five favourite zip-up hoodies for men.
Zip Up Hoodie In Black – £50, Good for Nothing
In a world of rather pedestrian men’s clothing, Good for Nothing’s 100% cotton sweatshirt stands out. In black (though versions are available in khaki, navy and burgundy) it has a bright red stripe down the outer edge of each sleeve and is finished off with the company’s signature butterfly logo. Matching jogging bottoms are available for this drawstring hoodie, which fastens up the front and has side pockets.
Classic Zip Hooded Sweatshirt – £180, Y3
If you’re looking for a nice, simple, quality addition to your casual wardrobe you need look no further than this Y3 classic zip hooded sweatshirt. This pure cotton piece has long sleeves, a drawstring hood and a central zip and two pockets at the front. The brand’s signature logo is printed in large black type on the back. It’s available in Heather grey and black as well as in the black olive colour shown here.
Zip Hood Detail Velour Curved Hem Hoodie – £8 (was £18), Boohoo.com
With short sleeves and in a light olive colour, Boohoo’s velour hooded top is far from your standard hoodie! The top has a dropped hem at the back and features not one but three zips – one at the front neckline and two at the side vents. Currently something of a steal in the sale with a tenner off, this attention-grabbing number is also available in a champagne colour but both are selling out fast.
Grey Cotton Lasher Hoody, Charcoal Marl – £39.20 (was £98), AllSaints
At the smarter end of the spectrum we have the grey Lasher hoody from AllSaints, which features long sleeves and a dropped shoulder. The long-sleeved sweatshirt has a draping oversize fit and a white contrast drawstring at the hood. With an extra-soft brushed fabric and ribbed cuffs and waistline, this top is currently available for less than half price in the sale so act now if you want to get your hands on one!
Samoo Digital Print Zip-up Hooded Sweat Top – £199, Hugo Boss
We end with a stand-out designer number: Hugo Boss’s Samoo digital print zip-up hooded sweater. A wide white striped band across the chest separates the solid navy blue of the body of the garment from a digitally-printed grey and light blue section, which extends across the back and covers the hood. The long sleeves of this pure cotton sweat are finished off with badges featuring the Boss logo.
