A Spotlight On: Hoodies
Holding the same precedence as the graphic tee, the staple hoodie is a formula that needs little changing. This item has been adopted for the trackside, eased its way into the comfort of your home, while it has cut its teeth on catwalks and within subcultural styles. All these characteristics paint the picture clearly – the hoodie is all about versatility.
The hoodie actually has roots back to the ‘30s, used as side-line apparel across sports teams in the US, while its function found its way into military academies and more general collegiate lifestyle over the following decades. Like many functional pieces, it was eventually adopted by streetwear styles and music scenes; most notably Hip Hop, street artists and every aspiring person trying to emulate that Rocky scene.
Nowadays, the hoodie has long outrun the Tony Blaire ‘Tough Love’ campaigns that got hoodies banned in shopping centres, vilifying working-class youth. The item has transcended this, standing as an accessible bit of clothing that has been seen on the catwalks, been produced by high-end brands, and it has been the route for many streetwear label’s path to success - often with a simple printed logo slapped on the chest. Anyway, we stock plenty on our site here at size?, and here are some of our favourites...
