    Any suggestions (even a suggestion of a brand or store to look at) for non-hideous:

    -hoodie, preferably with some protection against rain
    -gym bag

    TIA

    A lot of people like the John Elliot + Co wares when it comes to sweats/hoodies. I have no experience with anything of theirs except tees.

    I'm partial to the MMM leather elbow patch sweatshirts, but I realize they aren't hoodies. They're pretty thick, comfy (I sized up one from my usual Margiela size), and generally make it to sale time (I bought a navy one last season at retail for $495, and a black one for $170 on sale).

    Can't help you with gym bag, sorry

    There's quite a few decent-looking sweats around at the moment. Joe McCoy's maybe, if you want an old school repro. EPLA are doing hoodies too if you want something less rigorously heritage.

    My gym bag is by Briefing, US-made, heavy-duty nylon, I think they make for the military so it's fairly hefty stuff.

    [edit] quick check, it's the "gym wire bag"

    Looked there and there was some OK stuff in the hoodie department, not so much in the bags.

    I have it in navy, bought it over 7 years ago and it is still one my favorite piece of clothing. The cut is perfect, slim and slouchy at the same time, and that massive hood is fantastic.
    Also, it says SURF in big letters and that alone is enough to buy one.

    I have a grey zip up hoodie from Strike Gold. Truth be told, I think it was a waste of money, but FWIW, denimheads seem to highly regard it.

    Iron Heart also makes one.

    Also, these Army duffles aren't super-cutting edge or anything, but they go for $17 on eBay and I think would work well for a gym bag

    Could always go SW&D 2000-and-late style and go with Wings + Horns. They're not specifically water-resistant, but they're decent, slim-fitting, and less expensive than the repro brands (particularly on sale, which is pretty common).

    Unrelated: Did Adidas release a black/black Stan Smith for women during the latest reboot? The only women's Stan Smiths I can find are the customizable ones on the Adidas website, and it seems a little silly to pay extra just to pick the colors if the colorway in question is already available somewhere as a standard option.

    I'd check out aether for hoodies...the hoodie I bought from them has been excellent and I know they do more technical stuff as well (wrt the rain protection)

    sometimes I wear a thermal under it and then I am the king of cozyland. I'm wearing it right now, in fact.

    If you want a classic cotton blend hoodie you're not going to get much rain protection. You're more likely to find that in some sort of softshell jacket--full REI/Patagonia territory.

    This Pedaled softshell has been tempting me as an alternative to the standard outdoor brands, and it's on deep sale at East Dane. Oh fuck I just talked myself into it.

    Unbel should buy a cotton hoodie and spray Allen Edmonds' Suede Protector all over it.

    I like those too (NMWA has similar) but the hood gets a little wonky if you're not wearing a bike helmet.
