Few things are more synonymous with cold weather than hoodies. Originally invented in the early 20th century to protect laborers who worked in cold conditions, the hooded sweatshirt was a workwear staple for decades before eventually crossing over into the mainstream in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Today, the hoodie is a foundational piece of casual menswear—no different, really, than the T-shirt or jeans.

With the hoodie’s ever-increasing popularity—especially as people stay home and practice social distancing during the rise of the COVID-19 coronavirus—it’s even more important to have a hoodie that doubles as loungewear and workplace attire (even if your office is currently doubling as your kitchen table).

While there is a plethora of different brands providing their own spin on the hoodie, these brands ought to cover the bases for most.
