The Best Hoodies For Men

We’ll hazard a guess that at least 50% of the people reading this at home are wearing a hoodie. If you are, take a look at it. Is it looking a little frayed? A little worn? Whatever you do, don’t replace it. Those are the signs of a lived-in, loved hoodie. But would you wear your falling-apart but favoured hoodie out? To the gym or your local, sure, but anywhere else? Perhaps not, but that means you’re missing out on one of the great joys of winter – rivaling Christmas, even – namely layering. It’s simple to pull off, stylish when you do and, crucially, warm. To take advantage of this style opportunity, get your mitts on one of our favourite current styles.

Adidas Z.N.E. 36 Hours

The Best Hoodies For Men

Professional athletes spend a lot of time travelling to games, when comfort comes at a premium – which is why Adidas designed this hoodie. And while we’re sure pro athletes have it tough on their private planes, we reckon you’ll appreciate the breathable primeknit material even more when you’re crammed on the last train home. £120, buy on adidas.co.uk

Jack Wills Pembroke

The Best Hoodies For Men

While this hoodie is designed to afford the freedom of movement needed for workouts, it’s cut in such a way that it can easily slip into a smart-casual outfit (as the casual part, obviously). £65, buy on jackwills.com

L’Estrange The Hood

The Best Hoodies For Men

This London label took inspiration from suit lining to elevate its range of well-cut hoodies, which pair the comfort of exceptionally soft cotton with a sense of style you wouldn’t normally associate with this humble garment. While there’s a selection of linings, our favourite is the concrete print in the light navy colourway. £195, buy on lestrangelondon.com

TOG24 Banks

The Best Hoodies For Men

How warm do you reckon this fleecy number is? Yep, that warm and probably a bit more. It’s also anti-pill so you won’t get those bobbly bits, and the grey marl and deep port colours will look great under pretty much any winter jacket you can think of – denim jacket, leather jacket, pea coat… Grey marl £60 (reduced to £30), buy on tog24.com; deep port £60 (reduced to £48), buy on tog24.com

Polo Ralph Lauren Cotton-Blend

The Best Hoodies For Men

It’s got all the trappings of a comfy stand-by – pockets, a body made from soft fleece-back cotton-blend and waffle-knit hood lining – but there’s something about the contrasting box-fresh white of the drawstrings that adds a touch of flair. £100, buy on mrporter.com

Satisfy Post-Run Jersey

The Best Hoodies For Men
