What Are Good Quality Hoodies

When it comes to knowing what sets a good hoodie apart from a bad one, there’s certain things you need to consider. These are:

  • Price
  • Comfort
  • Style
  • Function
  • Material and Construction


The price of a hoodie is subjective. If you want a luxury brand such as Gucci, you’ll have to spend a whole lot more. If you’re focussing on high quality at a good price, there’s nothing better than Blank Staples from H&M in my opinion.

For the best of premium basic brands, ARKET is a good choice, and when it comes to sustainability Pangaia and Patagonia are great picks.

Comfort & Materials

A hoodie is generally a laid back and relaxed piece of clothing, so you want it to be as comfortable as possible. A good comfy hoodie will be cotton or a cotton blend, be a good fit and made of the softest cottons and materials.

Style & Function

If you want to have the most stylish hoodie, the one to go for is a slim fit. Slim fit hoodies are cut closer to the body, and so give off a much smarter look.

A baggy, oversized or loose fit hoodie is great for lounging around, but not as stylish as a fitted option (check out how to not look sloppy in a hoodie).

Types Of Hoodies (Zipped Or Pull Over)

There are 2 main types of hoodies: Zipped and pull over. They are exactly as you might think.

A zipped hoodie will have a full zip from top to bottom, similar to a jacket. These are sometimes called zipped hooded sweatshirts.

A pull over hoodie is pulled over your head, for a more traditional construction.


Those are the best hoodies brands you can buy today. With a vast array of different price points, functions, styles and fashion labels, there’s a lot on offer for men’s hoodies in fashion right now.
