Best 61 Hoodies for Men

Contents

If there’s one piece of clothing that most men, no matter what their individual style or taste is, has in their wardrobe, it’s a hoodie. Hoodies are the ultimate answer to the question ‘what should I wear today without looking like I’m trying too hard, but without looking like I don’t wash my pits’. They simultaneously make you look like the coolest cat on the block, without looking like you’re trying too hard to impress.

What’s more, they’re popular because they’re incredibly versatile. With a few notable exceptions (it’s not okay to pair a hoodie with a suit, unless you’re going from a 10K run to a board meeting, and if you’re doing that, what the hell went wrong with your scheduling?), hoodies work with everything. Great for working out in, because they’re normally designed to be breathable with materials that don’t let you sweat too profusely. Or at least sweat more than normally. But, they’re also great for going about your daily life.

So, if you’re in the market for a new hoodie or two, or buying for that special guy in your life, or you know, your roommate and want to get him something that won’t end up on eBay the same day you give it to him, you need Men’s Gear. You also need this, our gift guide to the best men’s hoodies. To help with your decision-making, we’ve also included a handy little buying guide at the end. Enjoy!

It’s made with a cotton-polyester blend and features the obligatory kangaroo pouch pocket for your hands to rest in. The North Face logo is on full display across the chest.

Superdry Combat Sport Hoodie

If our choices have been too subtle for your tastes, then you’ll probably fall head over heels for the next option from Superdry. The Superdry Sport is loud, proud and sexy! It’s got the front kangaroo pocket, a drawstring hood, an attractive stripe detail along the sleeves, ribbed hem and cuff. Impeccably made, this most certainly is. Wait, did we mention that it also has the Superdry Sport logo emblazoned across the front. It’s slightly too big to fit in its entirety, so the ‘t’ is left on the back.

Is that you? If yes, you’ll love the F-14 Factory Pilot hoodie. Rather than being a pullover-style, this has a zip-up closure that provides you with a snugger fit. It zips all the way up and has a higher neckline that becomes part of the hoodie, with drawstrings that help to bring everything down around your head and face.

Neff Throwback Hoodie

Neff Headwear started, unsurprisingly given the name, by producing stylish and trendy headgear including beanies and other hats. Since they moved into other areas too, they’ve brought that unique style and sophistication with them. Made from 100% high-quality cotton, we really love the coloring on this hoodie. What starts as a darker green gradually fades into a slightly different tone to give it a real worn and used feel. Pull this baby on and you’re good to go!

GUESS Roy Debossed Logo Hoodie

Carhartt Midweight Sleeve Logo Hoodie

If the lightweight numbers we’ve featured so far aren’t quite what you need, this midweight hoodie from Carhartt will give you a bit more substance for your money, without weighing you down. It’s made from a 10-5-ounce 50-50 blend of polyester and cotton, so there’s no question about its quality. Spandex has been used to good effect for extra stretch and flexibility in the ribbed waistband and cuffs, while the pouch-style pocket is large enough to fit your hands, unless you’re Hellboy, of course! To give it a more striking look than the average hoodie, the Carhartt name logo is featured on the sleeve while the simple the simple and small insignia is on the pocket.

Goodthreads Full zip Fleece Hoodie

The second hoodie in our guide from Goodthreads is this awesome zipper-style item that has a very classic look and feel that’ll go with just about any clothes you pair it with. To break up the amount of cotton-polyester used in this, there’s some nice metallic detailing in the slots in the hood where the adjustable drawstring has been inserted and the slick and subtle pouch is a great place to keep your hands warm when the temperature is not on your side. The whole thing, in fact, has been built for comfort, as the elasticated cuffs help to keep the heat in your arms and prevent the cool air slipping up them.

RVCA Crawlin Raglan Sleeve Hoodie

We love the way the raglan-style sleeves look on this next hoodie. That is, they’re made in one piece that continues up the length of the sweater to the neckline. It helps to give an attractive profile and makes for a comfortable wear when on. Rukah, that’s right dude, that’s how it’s pronounced, have clearly put a lot of effort into making this look as different as possible from the vast array of hoodies that all look the same out there. As it’s a pullover-style garment, there’s no fuss when you need to put it on and the attractive, yet small enough that it’s incredibly subtle RVCA logo gives elevates it from being too plain.

Hurley Surf Check Half-Zip Fleece Hoodie

Another big name in the surfing community, Hurley are known for producing finely designed and appealing garments. Just look at the Surf Check hoodie we’ve highlighted here! In stark contrast to others in our guide, rather than having a full zipper closure, the brand has opted for the cool and relaxed half-zip. While that means that it’s a pullover posing as a zip-up hoodie, we love that the zip runs up from the chest all the way up to the neck line. The soft fleece is very comfortable and side side-seam pockets, your hands can rest in cozy little caves on those chilly mornings when you’re taking a breather after running. Even if it’s just for the train or bus!

Van Heusen Never Tuck Fleece Hoodie

Think of Van Heusen and you probably think of those drop-dead gorgeous dress shirts that only the coolest cucumbers wear. Van Heusen exudes style. If only Van Heusen could bottle his style and we could all become stylish without having to buy their hoodies. If only, if only. It’s a good job then that their hoodies, particularly this Never Tuck number, are as cool and sexy as their shirts. The fleece-knit top is made from 100% polyester and has a slim-fit to give you a sculpted and chiseled look.

The North Face Campshire Pullover Hoodie

Think many of the 19 hoodies above are all well and good but are not exactly designed for the outdoors? Maybe you’re right, buddy. That’s why we’ve featured this beast from The North Face. The Campshire may sound like a region across the pond that’s been converted into a campsite, but trust us, silly name aside, this has been designed with a distinct purpose. For starters, it’s made from 100% 300-weight, superbly-warm Sherpa fleece to give you maximum protection against the cold air. Rather than leave it to poxy drawstrings, they’ve equipped it with a half-zip closure that runs right up into the hood.

GUESS French Terry Moto Hoodie

Taking inspiration from motorcycle gear, the next GUESS hoodie in our guide is made from a French terry fabric consisting of rayon, polyester and cotton. This is a very subtly-designed top that is in no way shape or form plain, but it’s not as loud and obvious as some we’ve featured. GUESS have made sure that it has a tight neckline that provides ample protection for your body from the elements, without choking you and the hood itself is very accommodating. If you don’t really want to make a scene or announce your presence, you’d likely choose this one.

Champion Big and Tall Color Block Hoodie

If the one above was subtle and could be worn without announcing your presence, this one will tell everyone you’re coming from a mile or two away! Subtle it aint, ideal for stealth it isn’t. Well, not unless you want to disappear into the crowd of sports fans while attending an event. To its credit it though, it doesn’t do anything by halves and is extremely lightweight, while being extremely comfortable too. Ideal for working out in, as there’s plenty of pocket space to keep your important, must-have-on-you-at-all times. The stripes and colorful logo have been embroidered on. So, don’t buy this unless you’re happy with everyone knowing you have taste!

Polo Ralph Lauren Double-Knit Hoodie

Surely, we don’t need to tell you fine folks reading this that Polo Ralph Lauren being involved in a hoodie like this is a good, good thing? This really is a hoodie that knows it’s awesome but doesn’t feel like it must shout it from the rooftops. It’s like one of those suave guys, like James Bond, that just walks in and you know everyone knows, he’s the Man. That’s right, with a capital M. The streamlined kangaroo pouch pockets, the ribbed trim and cuffs, the full zipper closure. Everything, even the poly-cotton mix used, is all about comfort, sure, but style and swagger too. Polo Ralph Lauren have even tried to keep a low profile here too by only using the simple chest pony badge.

Oakley Block Color Hoodie

All-cotton construction is the name of the game with the next Oakley hoodie in our guide. The Block Color is a comfortable and stylish way to keep those chills at bay. With ribbing in the waistline and the cuffs, you know you have a tight, but not restrictive seal at the places where warmth escapes and in turn lets cold air in. The same can be said for the hood itself, as it has suitable protection in the form of the obligatory drawstring. The prominent, yet subtle Oakley badge front and center on the chest plate, with the stylish block of contrasting color running along underneath it, make this a rather aesthetically-pleasing garment, all in all.

HUF Voyage French Terry Hoodie

French Terry is an extremely common and popular fabric to use in hoodies, due to its quality and heat-retaining properties. The Voyage hoodie from HUF Worldwide is another fine example of this kind of material being put to great use. There’s ribbing on the wrist cuffs and along the waistline and there has also been ribbed inset panels used with detailing from flatlock stitching. While subtlety prevails on the chest with just a simple H insignia, the left-hand sleeve has HUF WORLDWIDE written along it. The smart, plain coloring of the hoodie is in stark contrast to the camo-style coloring of the hood itself.

While it’s not a suitable substitute for a jacket or coat, it’s great for those days when the weather’s a bit breezy or you’re hill walking, rock climbing, mountain biking or just doing somewhere up the face of a mountain where the temperatures can go up and down very quickly.

Nike Heritage Full Zip Hoodie

The only surprising thing about Nike and one of their awesome hoodies coming in at number 40 in our gift guide is that they’ve not been featured sooner. Such is the quality showcased in this guide. What’s important though, is, was it worth the wait? We like to think it was. This is part of the Nike Heritage clothing range and features a very simplistic but suitably iconic design. A full zipper closure will keep you snug, with the help of the drawstring and that soft and comfortable hood.

The slim fit helps to give you a better shape and although it can’t turn you from a large and cuddly into a sculpted Adonis, it does help.

Peak Velocity Thermal Waffle Build Your Own Run Top

Not Goodthreads this time, but another Amazon brand – Peak Velocity, that we must admit is rather cool. It sounds like it’s already been an outdoor apparel or extreme sports garments brand for 50 years or something. Aside from the slick name, we really like the athletic-fit and slim, body-hugging feel this hoodie has. The thermal waffle-knit polyester used helps to trap all that valuable warmth between your t-shirt or body and the hoodie. That’s without compromising the breathability and lightweight nature of the beast. The part we especially like about this hoodie though is the option to ‘build your own’ by choosing the best silhouette and size for you and your body.

The SmartWool hoodie you’re looking at right now has a Merino-nylon blend and as you’d imagine, is wonderfully warm and cozy. What would you expect from a product made by a company that started life on cold and tough ski slope in Colorado? A simple belief that toes don’t have to be cold spurred it along. That was 20-years ago and what started as just socks, moved into other garments like hoodies. Merino wool has several great properties – it’s warm, resistant to odors, wicks moisture and is breathable.

HUF Relay French Terry Pullover Hoodie

Back again in the safe and capable hands of HUF Warehouse and this more simplistic approach to half-zip hoodies – the Relay in French Terry fabric made from 100%. Rather than having the name in unmissable fashion along the sleeve, this has a quieter appeal. A simple white trim along the ribbed hemline and cuffs and the HUF logo on the left. The great thing we love, like many other so-called half or quarter-zip hoodies is that while you get the fuss-free of the open-top pullover design, you also adjustability from the zipper in the half that does need or doesn’t need to be closed up for winter or down for summer.

  • Material Cotton 100%

Hurley Nike Dri-Fit Disperse Fleece Hoodie

Another killer entry into our guide from Hurley is this pullover hoodie. Made from 100% fine polyester, it’s got the usual components and features – ribbed cuffs and hemline. But what do most enjoy doing more than anything else – is the incorporation of Dri-fit tech into the hoodie. Why does it need that? Because pigeons! Ask a silly question, get a silly answer. The Dri-fit tech is ingenious and if you invest in this great item, you’ll experience for yourself its ability to ensure your safety and just how wet you are!

Bella + Canvas Poly-Cotton Fleece Pullover Hoodie

Bella + Canvas is all about being different. With this funky pullover hoodie, now’s your chance to do something different. There may not be much different about this piece of clothing on the surface, however when you consider the fact it has been made with both ring spun and combed cotton-polyester blend it’s easier to understand that it has a unique feel to it. Even if being different means choosing one in that peachy almost pinky color. Go for it!

Enter the ring as the Reigning Champ with this incredibly stripped back and simple, but devastatingly cool pullover hoodie. Handmade in Canada, it has been fashioned from 100% high-quality cotton and features set-in sleeves otherwise known as raglan, top-notch side paneling against the ribs and that deep front pocket. The cotton has been used to create a comfortable, yet cozy and still midweight hoodie. This is the ultimate representation of Reigning Champ as a brand and what a first impression it gives, eh?

Adidas Originals EQT Color Block Hoodie

The Adidas Equipment line of garments was released by the German sportswear brand back in the good old 90s, when there was a boon in running culture across the world. This contemporary-design hoodie should be an evolution of the look that first began during that iconic decade with a modern twist for the youth. The double-knit fabric made of a combination of polyester and cotton, gives the pullover-style hoodie an additional layer of comfort. While the retrospective color-blocking on the arms in a take on the Trifold that Adidas are famous for, gives it a nice edge.

Puma Rebel Up Hoodie

Sometimes it’s cool to be a rebel. The Rebel Alliance springs to mind. As does Rebel Yell by Billy Idol. Do you have the confidence to rebel up and consider this eye-catching hoodie from Puma? Made from a quality blend of cotton and polyester. It features on the front the repeated but not quite finished Puma in its classic typeface without the actual puma insignia logo and down the side of all the A’s it says, ‘Since Nineteen Forty-Eight’.

Volcom Single Stone Division Hooded Pullover Sweatshirt

The second Volcom hoodie in our guide is this cutting-edge design with a color blocking that only Volcom would be responsible for.

Volcom have never been about making a showing display of things and that’s proven further by the small and very classy logo on the left chest of the hoodie.

Falcon Bay Big and Tall Fleece Hoodie

The hardest thing about making this gift guide for you, was that we came across so many different hoodies that we’d happily add to our own wardrobes. There’s several on our personal wish lists just waiting to be bought, to be perfectly honest with you. Including this one from the less-well-known Falcon Bay brand. Designed to fit taller and wider gents, this still manages to exude the kinda coolness you’d expect that only came from Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds or Jake Gyllenhaal. A nice addition to it is the two-way zipper closure for extra warmth and the soft brushed fleece on the interior that contrasts the smoother look on the outside. The utility pocket along with pouch is great.

J. Crew Mercantile Fleece Henley Hoodie

J. Crew is one fashion label that are known for producing timeless classic versions of everyday essentials, including hoodies. This relaxed and laidback cool design fits in with the J. Crew ethos perfectly and will give you the confidence to rock up anywhere with that little bit of esteem-driven swagger. Although most in our guide have been either zip-up, pullover or quarter/half-zip-ups, this hoodie is different still with its pullover and half-button-up closure. The buttons are a great alternative to the zipper as they’re less likely to catch on the material and last a lot longer. It also tends to feel securer when your hoodie is fastened shut.

  • Material Cotton 60%, Polyester 40%
  • Style Pullover, quarter-button-up

Fox Standard-Fit Legacy Logo Hooded Sweatshirt

Finishing out our gift guide to men’s hoodies in style is this charming piece from Fox. The two-tone look with the darker hue sleeves and lighter hued front and back paneling make this an ideal smart casual addition to your everyday gear. The raglan-style sleeves are one complete piece of finished fabric that run all the way up to the neckline for a more fitted-feel. While there’s a little bit of additional style and focal point of interest in the form of the rather subtle but still cool Fox head logo.

  • Material Cotton 80%, Polyester 20%

Hood Up and Roll Out!

Well, that’s us reached the end of our gift guide to what’s great and good in the world of men’s hoodies. We hope you’ve enjoyed it even a fraction of the amount we enjoyed putting it together. Perfect for those early morning jobs or for those early morning lay around and wait for your alarm to go off before getting your ass into the shower and off to work. Ideal for working out when you do eventually have the motivation to do so. And perfect for wearing to work on dress-down Friday’s when you want to look cool AF. Though don’t overdo it, if you’re the boss. Don’t Michael Scott it and rap, unless you do have rhyming skills and know how to spit fire and have got some bars.

Whether you choose a zip-up, pullover or somewhere in between, is entirely up to you. We were unable to figure out whether one was better than the other, so have decided it’s really a personal preference thing. Sorry, we can point out the 61 hoodies we think you should consider, we can highlight top picks, but we can’t do the whole flipping job for you. We’re not your mom, dude.
