    Looking to see who makes the perfect, simple slim fit zip up hoodie.

    I want something new for travel and also something stylish and non-gym like.

    Advice?

    I really like the look and fit of my Am Apparel salt n pepper gray hoodie, if you want something cheap.

    To be honest I really hate my Am Apparel hoodies. The fit is short on the sleeves and hem, but if I size up it gets really baggy in the torso. H&M is a much better budget option IMHO. I do love my DRKSHDW hoodie. Very slim, but with extra long sleeves and hem. On sale at Yoox right now too.

    American Apparel hoodies fit small, skinny dudes, really well and they are very thin which is good for layering I guess.

    Perfect is a bit of a stretch but my Uniqlo Slim Fit hoodie from 3 years back is super soft and one of my most used pieces of clothing. Great for throwing on when just pissing about.

    EG hoodies fit well... Rogues Gallery is also good (if you can get one without a print on it).

    Not to be a dick but why not use the search button ?
    I swear I saw something similiar a week ago and this seems to pop up all the time.

    That aside, try Wings + Horns if price is not a problem although you can usually get them for a decent price in the market if you check accordingly.

    If price is a factor, then I'll say Uniqlo over AA for a better fit and quality. They have dual zips on their most basic zip ups and they are just overall sturdier than any AA I've own. Stays in shape after some machine wash as well. I cannot say the same for AA hoodies, hems get all crappy after the machine.

    +1 on Wings and Horns. If you have the cash, they're hard to beat. They have become pretty much my "go to" hoodie.

    does AA make a double zip hoodie or are all of them just a regular zip up?
