Summer hoodies

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for a nice blank white summer hoodie, a thin one that I can use for layering when it gets cold. I see people seem to like American Apparel so I was wondering how the California Fleece Zip Hoody fits. It looks to be just what I'm looking for but I want more imput. Also does anyone know when the China Gate store in SF is opening. Any other suggestions would be nice too but I'm not willing to spend more than $100.

Yea, I'm also trying to get a hoodie. I know Spruce is good, but I'm not willing to spend 150 on it.

the AA california fleece hoodies are VERY light. too light for my liking, and i live in perth, australia, where a cold day in winter is 15 degrees C. they are also sized really small, i am a small in most shirts, sweaters etc, and the AA S was almost skin tight. size up in the AA hoodies.

Size up in AA. I could even see going up two sizes. I am a skinny 36 and the small ripped when I tried to put it on.

There is a AA hoody with thermal lining that I have which is great - a lot warmer than the thin fleece one. Here it is:

Nice slim fit and not too crazy of a price.

I'm a size 24, 5'5 and 113 lbs, do you think a small would still rip? I don't mind the hoodie being too light, i already have a nice thick russell hoodie, i just want another one to throw on when i'm having a bad shirt day, the same way you'd throw on a beanie on a bad hair day. And also use it for layering in the fall and winter. I live in the Bay Area so it's never really too hot or too cold.

I live in San Francisco and the California fleece hoodies are good lightweight hoodies IMO. I am a 36 and would ideally wear something between AA's small and medium if it existed. I mostly wear the mediums.

Size 24-25?

depending on how you want it to fit, you should be fine with a small I'm 5'8 140 and a M fits me well (maybe a tad too big for my liking)

Did you pick the AA gear up in Perth? If so, where abouts did you find them?
