This Everlane Cashmere Hoodie for Men proves that the hoodie can make a style statement.
Hoodies are unlike any other garment in your closest. Traditionally, they’re thought of as plain and functional—but hoodies can be so much more. What makes a hoodie special is subjective to the wearer. A comfortable hoodie is rarely thrown away. Instead, we tend to live in them until they’re long past presentable.
Here is a roundup of the best hoodies, based on quality fabric and timeless style rather than hot trends or labels. After all, a good hoodie can’t only be seen—it has to be felt.
Because it’s Patagonia, this hoodie has to have been made from organic cotton and be 100% eco-friendly in all aspects. Don’t let its simplicity fool you—the Patagonia Yewcrag is one of the warmest and most comfortable hoodies on the list thanks to its mix of organic cotton, moisture-wicking polyester and breathable lining. It’s a simple and functional item that’s meant for adventurers who love the outdoors.
The J.Crew Hoodie has a slim-fit profile that hugs your body a bit more than other hoodies. The inner lining is soft to the touch, while the outer switched layer is smooth and resistant to fraying. This is perfect if you’re looking for a comfortable hoodie that also looks good when paired with a blazer.
If comfort is more important than functionality, then this luxurious 100% Cashmere Hoodie by Everlane is for you. It’s made with heavyweight cashmere so you know it’s incredibly soft to the touch and gentle on your skin. But this is not a low-maintenance style. Because the sweater is heavy cashmere, you can’t just toss it into the washer. Instead, you’ll need to follow meticulous care instructions.
Made from high quality loop-back cotton jersey, the Ami hoodie feels as good as it looks. And its thoughtfully ribbed trims gives it durability without making the fabric stiff and heavy. The Ami Cotton-Jersey Hoodie is one of the best hoodies on the list in terms of quality and feel.
Champion recently made a big comeback with the help of Instagram influencers and Urban Outfitters. Although it’s now become a beloved brand among twentysomethings, Champion has stayed true to its brand and continues to offer high-quality comfort wear that’s iconic, comfortable and built to last. The Champion Hoodie definitely lives up to its name. It’s a simple hoodie that’s well-made, comfortable and will probably become your go-to hoodie for sporty or low-key activities.
Every North Face hoodie has to get a literal quality stamp of approval before it can be sold in a store. With that level of quality control, you know you’re getting what you pay for. In addition to being incredibly warm, The North Face Half Dome Hoodie also comes equipped with athletic-style cuffs, ribbed hem and warm jersey lining the interior of the hood for extra chill protection. And this cocoon of warmth comes in a huge variety of colors.
This hoodie comes from a collaboration between Champion and Todd Snyder. It’s a simple yet elegant streetwear style with modern tailoring for a warm and stylish fit. The material is a blend of cotton and polyester and the interior is lined with extra-thick fleece to provide all-day comfort for either outdoor activities or running errands.
Flint and Tinder
No one ever settles for just one hoodie. But if you had to just choose one, let it be the Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover. The entire hoodie is extraordinarily well-crafted and you can see the attention to detail in almost every aspect of its construction. From the 23-ounce inner fleece lining, to the metal-tipped drawstring and reinforced seams, no expense was spared when designing this item. It looks good now and will only get better with age.
