Hi guys, this is my first post lol.
I need your help.
One month i bought an hoodie from the brand “Octopus” and I ordered an M size.
As you can see from the picture it fits good, normal. But I want an oversize look on an hoodie. What size should I go for the next hoodie?

It looks like a pretty slim hoodie so you should definitely look for a boxier cut, and most likely size up. If you size up on a slimmer cut hoodie it's going to just look too long.

Try on a champion reverse weave in M and L and see how it is. It has a boxier more 90's cut to it

So size up with an L ‘ll not have an oversized shape? I ask cause I like the brand.

As Grayfox mentioned, if you size up, the hoodie will be too long. You need a different shape in the cut for it to look properly oversized. It has to be shorter and boxier. Sizing up in that specific hoodie will not give you a pleasing silhouette.

What brand do you suggest for a boxier/oversized hoodie?

There's a fucking picture? stop bumbing your thread you dumbass.

Contemporary hoodies: often streamlined and slim fitting
Older gym style hoodies: often baggier.

Anything can be oversized byut older hoodies tend to work better.
