In the clothing demand hierarchy, men’s sweatshirts are ranked after T-shirts, underwear and jeans.Over the decades, they’ve evolved from sportswear staples to bona fide fashion icons, with enough style juice to help you get out of some serious moods: think Steve McQueen riding a motorcycle in a greasy crew-neck, Or the Balenciaga of the Demner era in baggy clothes – a hell of a hoodie under a trench coat.In 2022, sweatshirts are available for almost every occasion.There are sweatshirts that you keep warm while walking your dog, sweatshirts that you actually sweat, and even sweatshirts that you put aside for a suit and dress shoes.Today, we’ll go through all of these versions and more.

The crewneck sweatshirt was invented in the 1930s by Benjamin Russell, Jr., a professional football player who wanted a comfortable alternative to the frayed wool in his sports uniform.His solution was a soft cotton fleece jumper with a crew neck that eventually revolutionized the fashion world.
Another legendary silhouette that needs no real introduction.Of course, hoodies are an after-get off work must-have, perfect for a hardcore lounging all day bundled up on the couch.But they also bring ease to just about any fit and look right at home in a tailored coat or puffy bomber jacket.
Like a casual cardigan, the zip-up hoodie gives you the flexibility to show off whatever you’re wearing underneath — whether it’s a killer graphic tee or a sturdy flannel button-down shirt — and doesn’t require a low level gymnastics to put on.
Those half-zips and quarter-zips you used to wear when coaching your childhood soccer team?They are cool now.Unzip them to show off that wild new necklace you just cut, or tie them straight to the top when a cold wind blows from nowhere.
