The Boogiest Hoodies and T-shirts

View on the web

There's a tug of war between good and bad in this newsletter. The bad news is today's Sunday and real life resumes tomorrow. The good news is that I'm going to spend the rest of this newsletter talking about why you should buy and wear expensive “basic" items, like a hoodie (in written form) and a T-shirt (in video form).

More good things: It’s now the season to take refuge in your favorite hoodie without suffering side eye from anyone. Buy the weird ones designers are pumping out and truly be your best schlub. This doesn’t come without remembering the bad times: I spend an entire paragraph recounting how I wore a Slim Shady sweatshirt my mom bought me at T.J. Maxx almost every day during middle school. Now I get paid to write things about clothes on the internet, so joke's on you, really. —Cam Wolf, menswear editor

10 Hoodies Wit Da Boogie

A hoodie is no longer just a hoodie. The thing you pick up off the floor in the morning — or from a hanger in the closet, if you’re a real showoff — and throw on before braving the cold has grown all the way up. Thanks to athleisure, John Elliott’s seminal Villain hoodie, Kanye declaring that “sweatshirts are fucking important,” and the absolutely crucial emergence of New York-based rapper A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, the sweatshirt has become an important part of the fashion canon.

And it’s not just the multi-functional, well-made hoodies that the bros of Silicon Valley throw hundreds of thousands of dollars at. Designers now are experimenting with graphics, fabrics, and fit more than ever.

Middle school-me (and now-me) is delighted by the hoodie revolution. This is a true story: My mom once went to TJ Maxx, because the Wolfs are nothing if not GD Maxxinistas, and bought me an XL sweatshirt with a huge Slim Shady (yes, as in Eminem) graphic printed on it. I wore it roughly 99 percent of the time during my school days — a luxury afforded only by growing up in the perpetually chilly Bay Area.

There’s nothing quite like wrapping yourself up in what is essentially a blanket that’s acceptable to wear out of the house. The hood also works as a shield for the constant sense of embarrassment teenagers harbor.

Below are the best hoodies to buy now — just probably not at TJ’s, unfortunately.

Whether you’re thanking the brand or blaming them, you have to credit Vetements for renewing interest in the classic Champion logo hoodie ($50, or $60 for the name spelled out.) If you came to this post looking for a nice, affordable hoodie — and not an anecdote about an Eminem sweatshirt — you don’t even need to read any further.

Maison Margiela

Is wearing just one band T-shirt at a time not enough for you? Well, right this way, you modern-day Caligula. This Maison Margiela hoodie ($695) is a collage of rock ‘n’ roll graphics on top of each other; people across the land will understand how punk you are before you even throw up the horns.

Hypebeast described the aesthetic of this newly-launched brand as “Ball Is Life Meets Skate or Die.” How that applies to this Practice Hooded Sweatshirt ($160), I have no idea. But look at how shiny and silky it looks — thank the poly-blend cotton for that, and then shoot the ol’ leather pumpkin into a “basketball ring” while riding a skateboard, I guess???

Aimé Leon Dore

I want a French Terry hoodie desperately, and this creamy Heavyweight Kanga Hoodie ($155) from Aimé Leon Dore looks comfortable as heck. It’s so beautiful that ALD designer Teddy Santis embossed the brand’s logo on the center like an artist adding their signature on a canvas.

Diet Butcher Slim Skin

Don’t let Britney Spears have all the fun with her velour Juicy Couture sweatsuit. This Diet Butcher Slim Skin Black Velour Hoodie ($300) is the comfiest and most stylish way to pretend the ‘90s never ended.

How to Tell If a Fancy T-Shirt Is Worth the Money

When you can get away with spending only $10 on a T-shirt, it can be... shocking and/or rage-inducing to see one that costs over $100. In this video, we look at the differences between the cheapest option and something a little more upscale to see if dropping that kind of cash on a basic tee is ever the move.
