Though it's been around since the early 1930s, the classic hoodie really didn't hit its stride until 50 years later. That's when hip-hop, with its dress code built around stylish athleticwear, transformed it from a humble workout top into an emblem of outsider cool. Just like sneakers, the hoodie is now a staple of modern American style, worn by everyone from off-duty dads to superstar musicians and billionaire tech entrepreneurs.
The perfect sweatshirt, with a traditional athletic cut (not too bulky, not too tight) and made from french terry. Considered the finest variation of terry cloth, french terry is knitted from two separate yarns—one that stays taut, and another that creates the loose loops, called "piles," on the back of the fabric.
