Best Hoodies!? Recommendations - Page 3

post #31 of 253
Not sure about previous years' W+H hoodie, but I recently got the 'Archive' terry hoodie from them and think they're overrated for the money. Jcrew vintage hoodie is a good value!

the terry hoodies aren't as incredibly awesome as the tiger fleece ones are. I have both and like them both a lot, they are just different. I have worn my uniqlo vintage terry hoodie for about three years now, and it is still holding up. the tiger fleece is by far the best hoodie i have ever owned though, not even close.

Unfortunately I believe they are all in Canada and the United States... I'm sure someone can correct me if I'm wrong though. Agreed @ the tiger fleece being better than the terry hoody. The terry is very light weight. More spring, fall, summer kind of deal. Not a great winter option, depending on where you live. The tiger fleece is thicker and warmer. Ideally you would find a tiger fleece from a few years back when they a) offered both slim and classic fits and b) used RiRi zippers. I do have a size M classic fit '07 or '08 black tiger fleece (thick) with RiRi, NWOT. The fit is bigger than the tiger fleeces of today as it is the "classic fit" and states it on the tag. Would part w/ as it's too big. (edit; parted with it).

of course...



i've got a couple W+H tiger fleece for casual wear and i got this vince hoodie for cheap on gilt recently for schlepping around the house. AA hoodies are ok for schlepping around but i hate how the back of the hoodie is like 4 inches shorter than the front and looks retarded. i've never had issues with the zippers on them so i'm surprised to hear all the backlash about them in here.

Union and Fred Segal in LA used to carry RC...last I check Fred Segal didn't have this past season in stock and I haven't been to Union in a while.

I was at a Crossroads in Seattle a couple weeks ago and they had a shit ton of brand new Reigning Champ pieces (not in my size, of course) with price tags on them. So I assume they came from a retailer in the area trying to unload them. Pretty useless info, sorry.

Sure, they're about $150, but think about how much you'll wear it. Buy fewer high-quality items that you love, and you'll be happier with your wardrobe. Plus, they have a unique look.

Engineered Garments also makes a good hoodie, I'd check them out too.

Think they stop using RiRi on their hoodies...

Ideal is crap. Not enough to keep me from buying a hoody, but they frickin' suck. Been discussed in the w/h '10 thread.

"Tough as nails construction" - wrong. Tough as nails fabric. Your jacket's only as good as your zipper. I would much prefer a standard YKK like you would find on a $20 hoody. Anything but Ideal. I would love to hear the reasoning behind moving away from RiRi. w/h's still offers them I noticed. On some of the highest end pieces.

I've currently got 2 w+h hoodies (one tiger fleece, one slatted fleece) from the older seasons and they're easily my favorite hoodies. I wear them almost everyday, especially during this time of year. Extremely comfortable and extremely warm (especially the tiger fleece)... also have a great slim fit and wonderful construction. The ones I have use Lampo zips (after they stopped using RiRi but before they started using Ideal IIRC). I used to have a w+h hoodie with RiRi zips too but that one was sold. I'll be honest and say that while RiRi zips are fantastic quality, they might be a bit too heavy duty for these hoodies IMO. RiRi zips just don't slide all that well. If anyone has owned/used a w+h hoodie with Lampo zips you'd know what I mean. The Lampos slide like butter but IMO don't sacrifice quality. I think they're the ideal zips for hoodies like these, and it's a shame that w+h has abandoned them to use something shitty.

I think you are right there. Thinking about my '07 or '08 classic fit tiger fleece hoody that did have a riri, the zipper is extremely substantial. But that thing is like a tank. Thicker and warmer than anything i've seen recently. And the riri suits it just fine. It has that rubberized zipper piece connector at the bottom which makes connecting the zipper a breeze. But....they would be too big for these tiger fleeces, and certainly too large for the thin cotton S/S hoodies. The weight of them would be all zipper. Too bad they didn't stick with the Lampo's, though I can't say I've seen one yet. Wonder what happened there..
