I just got this new hoodie from a new company called American Giant. I love hoodies. There is no better item of clothing. If I could wear a hoodie and jeans every single day I would. Well, I'd probably want to mix in a dress every now and then with a cute pair of patent leather red Ferragamo wedges just to feel cute. But my go to outfit is jeans and a hoodie. Much to my ex's chagrin. (We had a huge fight the day before our wedding - harbinger of doom? - because he hid my favorite gray hoodie; he was sick of looking at me in it. Understandable. Not exactly sexy.)
I digress. I got this new hoodie. Black. A men's small. I'm not a fan of the girly too small shrunken hoodies ala Juicy Couture. Yuck. Defeats the purpose of a comfy hoodie! So I have this new small men's black hoodie from American Giant. It is so old school in that awesome Champion/Russell standard issue college athletic department sweatshirt kind of way. I miss those. The ones you buy now at Gap or Old Navy or even Abercrombie (expensive!) are so disappointing. I love it when the fabric is heavy, gets a little stiff with washing while remaining soft on the inside, big cuffs, sturdy zippers. Like the one I used to have from the Stanford Athletic Department. Love those.
These are those. Awesome. They aren't cheap. They are American Made. And they'd cost more if they sold in department stores - mark up and all that. But because they only sell on-line ... well they aren't AS expensive as they could be given the quality.
I officially have my new favorite item of clothing. Nostalgia in a warm comfy perfect little sweatshirt. Yay.
