I was just browsing Yoox looking for a new hoodie or sweatshirt with a budget of about $110-120 max, and was wondering if anyone had some input on the quality/fit/styling of the following labels: Joe Rivetto, Surface to Air, Jeanseng Outfit Royale, Antonio Marras.

Any other recommendations in that price range are also appreciated: I'm just looking for something with a wide range of color selections, a slim cut, and minimal logo/print.

Yeah I checked that thread out; very informative, but, to clarify, I'm looking to get away from the military/earth tone color palette and get something more in the bright/pastel spectrum (which is what I should have said as opposed to just "wide range of color selections").

I really like Surface to Air. There are a few bird prints this year that I think are really interesting. The fit is roomy, the quality, good. I hate pastels except for some greens and blues, but Dunderdon does a decent job with them.

More expensive, but perhaps to your taste, are Eisbar hoodies.

Both brands are carried by Mauro at the Denim Bar in Arlington VA. Phone him and tell him Fok sent you.

I think I'm probably leaning closest to some designs I've seen from Surface to Air. Can you elaborate on what you mean by roomy fit? I'm about 5'8", 140, typically take 38R in suit jackets and medium in most t-shirts and sweaters; should I size down and look at small in Surface to Air if I want a closer fit?

I have two Surface To Air tees. They are probably my favorites. Very comfortable and they have nice details.
