Boyz n the Hoodie

In menswear on 30 May 2009 at 2:05 am

I have a thing for hoodies. For a start, I don’t have any hair so a hood is a great alternative to a hat and, being attached, I can’t lose it.

You can wear a hoodie by itself, and they add instant street cred – and warmth – layered under a suit jacket or blazer like a waistcoat.

Here are three Australian-designed hoodies around this winter.

Chapter 11

Pared back to basics, the Classic Zip-Up Hoodie by Melbourne street label Chapter 11 has three panels in the hood so it sits flat. Simple and subtle – inside pockets! – it comes in grey marle, charcoal and black. $69.

Injuryy space hoodie

Injury‘s Space Hoody, designed by Eugene Leung, has a tubular drawstring hood that sits like a cowl-neck when not being worn. Elastane panels run along the inside of the sleeves for stretch and comfort. $149, stockists here.

To Sir With Love Cashmere

Warmth and luxury in a new wardrobe staple: a unisex cashmere hoody by To Sir With Love, designed by Margot Davies. $795.

  1. Cool, hoodies, I wonder if their cool style would be enough to stop me being denied entry into some shopping centres ;-).

    “Don’t you know how much this cost????”

  2. I must admit, I think boys in hoodies are darn cute…..
