Plain and simple, you need a great hoodie.  It’s been a year since we featured the Full Zip version from American Giant, and we are yet to find anything that can even come close to it in terms of quality.  The feature below originally ran on October 6, 2012.

Every guy we know loves a good hoody.  Some prefer a pullover, others prefer a zip up, but, regardless of the style, literally everyone we know has that one hooded sweatshirt that shows up every Fall without question.  This year, we’ll be introducing a new hooded sweatshirt to our rotation.  It’s tough to think that our old favorites are being replaced, but as soon as we saw the Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt from American Giant, we knew change was imminent.

American Giant has done a fantastic job of modernizing a number of our favorite casual staples, and their take on a classic zip up hoody is no exception.  Made from a heavy 12.4 oz fleece, this classic sweatshirt is available in six basic colors, and features a number of small touches that we absolutely love.  From dyed to match zipper tape, to ribbed elbow and shoulder reinforcements, American Giant has really taken the art of the hoody to the next level.  Though it may be your “new hoody” this season, trust us, the Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt from American Giant will be your “Old Faithful” in no time at all.
