Best value in (thick, heavy, yet stylish and well constructed) hoodies? - Page 2

post #16 of 44
Where did he say non-zip?

inviscid, where do you live? Uniqlo in Soho had some pretty heavy hoodies last winter--kind of a sueded cotton, very sturdy, and like $30, IIRC. Of course, if you're not in a very small area in NY and North NJ, that's not very helpful.

You won't get any sF points for it, but have you checked the mall stores? Places like J Crew have alright hoodies, not great value necessarily, but usually reasonably warm and still well under $100. BR has one for $80 that's a cotton/wool blend and has a double zip and all. Granted, I haven't seen these in person, but they're there.

I assumed he meant non-zip because he mentioned that he liked the fit of American Apparel, but they were not an option since they were so thin. However AA has a thick (thermal lined) zip hoodie. So either he didn't know this, he doesn't like the particular hoodie for some reason, or he wants non-zip.

If you're into the Nike Hoodies, but they're too boxy, you should probably just buy one and get it taken in. That way, you've got the style you like and the fit to match.

Dunderdon makes a very solid plain zip-up hoody for around $80-90.

Uniqlo in NYC had cashmere non-zip hoodies for like $100. Not terribly thick, but nice. If you're in southern new england, Bob's stores always has nice thermal hoodies for about $35 around the wintertime. You can always just take the sides in or size down if you want the thing to fit smaller. Mine lasted 2 years with heavy use before the zipper gave out.

I know I might get flak for posting this here instead of the B&S forum, but it's on topic so what the hell: I'm selling a brand new, tagged Ever waffle-lined hoodie in black, size large, for $100 shipped.

Check it out right heeyah:
http://www.bluebeeonline.com/product...57&pn=1&st=210

They're $140 at AE with the SF discount, not including shipping, so I'm saving you fifty bucks or so (and AE doesn't carry black, so I'm actually saving you ninety bucks or so). It's nice and warm and looks damn sharp; I actually ordered two with the intention of sending one back and then forgot. It's fitted, but not absurdly so - I take a L in AA and a M in most other brands, and this is a near-perfect fit on me. Interested?

Also, Supreme has the nicest hoodies I've ever seen. Ridiculously heavy cotton that's thermal lined and just all-around beefy. I'd even say that they're approaching worth the $120, and that's coming from an extremely cheap fashion consumer.

No. They use a cut-and-sew program. Their sweats are very well made, by a very good company. If you see one, look up CA number.

Supreme is made by CYC I believe.

No love for Ever on this board, apparently, so I'll throw some in here: this is a killer hoody, espec. for $100. The construction is industrial-grade, and there's just enough detailing to give it character (slight weathering, sleeve patch, gold zipper) without making it over the top (e.g. those hideous Great China Wall things they also sell at Blue Bee - pair one of those with some Antiks and you'll be the most wanktastic AmJack in the room).

I know this isn't a brand we all nut ourselves over, but I also got me a Spruce from a while back, and I'll just say that there's a reason these Ever numbers retail for more than the current Wings & Horns (not that the latter aren't great pieces in their own right).

P.S. I should add that I'm keeping one of the Evers I bought, I just had a hard time rationalizing another high-end black hoody. Also, that little speck near the right pocket in the Blue Bee photo is a removable Ever logo pin - cool touch.

Alright, I'm sold. Too bad it's not my size. For curiousity's sake, what are the measurements?
