    Received the alternative apparel hoodie. Not as high quality as an abercrombie hoodie unfortunately.

    It feels exactly like an $8 walmart hoodie except the cut is much better. So it's worth 3x the walmart hoodie but that's not saying much.

    Again, does anyone have any 1st hand experience with Nicholas K products in general and in particular their hoodies? $300 level quality?

    Good luck with that, I'm tempted to drop 300 RIGHT NOW.
    There was interest from numerous SF'ers earlier in the thread: any of you guys pick up the Tripp hoodie? Here's an image hosted elsewhere, since Nicholas K took down all their images. Is this color slate heather or smoke heather? [​IMG]

    I have a W+H hoodie but I'd like something longer, as slim, and with lower pockets. Any suggestions?

    I actually bought a slim-fit XL and took it to a tailor to get it slimmed down in the body.

    Supreme do some nice thick hoodies, and I mean thick, made in Canada, size medium is quite fitting, but they do come with some logo and/or graphic design so if your wanting a plain hoody it might not be your cup of tea.

    Pretty sure Supreme hoodies are made by CYC, the same company that makes Reigning Champ and W+H

    reigning champ & w+h ...

    Is sizing on RC the same as on W+H, and are they as slim? I wanna pick up an RC recycled fleece hoodie at some point, but surprise surprise, there's no one in Philly who stocks them.

    I'm just quoting this because it's insanely awesome.

    +1 I'm not exactly sure why people are recommending Alternative Apparel here. I bought a hoodie from them awhile back and was sorely disappointed. The material feels thin and flimsy and it started to pile the first day I wore it. The seams are pretty lousy and the zipper/shrinkage problem gives the hoodie major sweater boner. After one single wash, the underside of the material is incredibly piled and the whole sweater looks like its been wore for a couple of years. A hoodie from GAP probably wears better than AA. All in all, I cannot recommend Alternative Apparel at all.
