Trying to decide on a plain slim hoodie purchase from Loopwheeler. Trying to decide between the navy, grey, or black. Which color do you think is most versatile and functional?

Here's the hoodie:

All of those colors work well with almost anything. I prefer classic grey myself, but I'd be happy with any of the three.

Navy won't look too great with raw dark denim IMO. And I don't personally like heathered gray like that, but that's just me. So it would be the black for me.

I have this thing for black hoodies. I don't know what it is, but I love 'em. However, they don't layer as well. If you're planning on using it as a layering piece, I'd go for the gray, otherwise, black. I agree completely with j that navy won't look as good with raw denim, so assuming that's a factor for you, I'd personally stay away from it.

I concur. Navy will certainly look nice but won't mesh if you're a denimhead. I got black. The mans color. Or something.

LA Guy, I've also considered the classic heavier version, just because the fact that I can still wear it when I'm 55 and I'm not so sure I can do that with the slimmer zip up. It's just the one on their website, the guy looks soooo fat and sloppy in it! :
It's making me want the slimmer look.

I tried on the classic in a medium (I'm a M-L in t-shirts, L in W&H hoodies- about as slim as i'd want it, 38US chest) and it fit comfortably and snugly- and it doesn't make you look fat like that picture haha.

Jonglover,

Can you post a pic with you wearing your hoodie just to see the fit? I'm sure you'll look better than that guy in the picture who seems to be thrusting his gut out!
