Towards the cheaper side of things, J Crew, Uniqlo, and American Apparel make good hoodies. J Crew's the most expensive at $60, but I really do like them, and they're well made, even if the zippers can be a little annoying at times. Uniqlo's stuff is just generally very well made for the price. Still, while I haven't tried it on, I'd be worried that the fit would be somewhat baggy; a lot of their stuff for the American stores is made pretty relaxed. American Apparel is really lightweight and even rather overpriced at full retail. If you go through someone with a wholesale account, though, they're a damn good buy at ~$20.
Are J.crew's hoodies slim fit?
Is there a consenus here on which brand's hoodies offered the best "fit"?
