Top list – fashionable hoodies

When hip-hop culture broke through in New York in the 70s, the hoodie also became a real statement garment in music circles. And after Sylvester Stallone ran up the stairs to the Philadelphia museum of art in Rocky III in 1982, big fashion houses like Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren began to include hoodies in their men's collections.

Whether or not you like hip hop – or running up stairs – you’ll surely find a favourite among these models.

Houdini M's Power Houdi

6. Houdini M's Power Houdi

Houdini’s Power Houdi is a classic among outdoor clothing and also something that never becomes a shelf warmer but is actually used frequently – and for a long time, thanks to its good quality. The hoodie, or “Houdi” as they call it, is made of Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro and works as a warming extra layer under a shell jacket on colder days, or used as it is in milder weather.

It has a slim fit and the extended sleeves with thumb holes make it extra snug.

Under Armour Rival Terry Hoodie Men - Gray

7. Under Armor Rival Terry Hoodie

Like so many other companies, Under Armor was started due to dissatisfaction with the existing offerings. The company was formed in the mid-90s by a man named Kevin Plank who tired of getting too hot under his American football gear and so took matters into his own hands. At the time he was team captain of the University of Maryland's American football team but he wanted a shirt that kept him dry when he played.

This hoodie would be too chunky to wear underneath American football gear, but the quality is obvious both here and in the rest of the company’s collections.

3 tips for buying hoodies

  1. Think about where you’ll wear it. If you only need a sweatshirt for working out, it’s enough to get a basic model in a functional material, but if you want to wear it outside the gym, consider getting something better.

  2. Zip or not? Sometimes it's nice to just pull something over your head, sometimes it's nice to be able to open up the front to regulate heat.

  3. Look for pockets. Open sided kangaroo pockets are fine for hands, but has anyone ever actually managed to carry anything safely in one? Probably not. So if you need to carry things with you, it’s probably better to have pockets that can be closed.
