A BRIEF HISTORY OF MEN’S HOODIES
By hoodies, we of course mean hooded sweatshirts. While the term “hoodie” wasn’t coined until the 1990s, the first hooded sweatshirts were made back in the 1930s by Champion (then known as the Knickerbocker Knitting Company). The company added hoods to sweatshirts to provide a warmer option for laborers in Upstate New York during the frigid winter months. Athletes and the military quickly got in on this new apparel option for workouts and training exercises. And, once teens and young adults started sporting hoodies, they began to take off in earnest. Finally, in 1976, Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa officially launched the hooded sweatshirt to icon status.
HOW TO STYLE MEN’S HOODIES
No matter what you pair a hoodie with, the fit of the sweatshirt itself will make all the difference. Men’s hoodies with an athletic fit are always much easier to style without looking sloppy. Once you’ve chosen a sweatshirt that fits just right, try pairing it with any of these options:
1. Denim jacket
Layer your hooded sweatshirt under a denim jacket for a clean, casual look. Finish the outfit with a slim pair of jeans and boots.
2. Leather jacket
Pairing a hooded sweatshirt with a leather jacket might not be the first option that comes to mind—but it ought to be. Try layering a men’s hoodie under a leather bomber jacket. You’ll see what we mean.
3. Trucker jacket
4. Jeans and sneakers
Don’t want to hide your sweatshirt under a jacket? No problem. Just pair it with a slim fitting pair of jeans and some clean sneakers, and you’re good to go.
EXPLORE OUR MEN’S OUTERWEAR COLLECTION
Buffalo Jackson offers a full suite of quality men’s outerwear in various styles and materials that perfectly complement our men’s hoodies and pullovers. In every design, we strive to honor the old-school values of hard work, grit, and the spirit of adventure.
Leather Jackets & Vests
Our leather jackets and vests are handcrafted using different types of leather including lambskin, sheepskin, and cow leather. Each type of leather offers distinctive properties that complement the different jacket styles. Most differences come down to appearance, texture, and how the leather is processed.
Waxed Canvas Jackets & Vests
Waxed canvas takes all the best features of canvas, and then adds some valuable features. The wax coating repels water, improves wind resistance, and—like high-quality leather—waxed canvas looks and feels better the more you use it, developing a fine patina over time.
Our wool jackets include our Yukon wool shirt jacs, our heavyweight Ellis wool jacket with quilted interior and sherpa collar, and our flannel-lined Wesley wool jacket which features a more tailored riding jacket fit.
