Hoodie Styles for Men
Hooded sweatshirts, often referred to as "hoodies" now hold a permanent place in fashion. The hoodie was a piece of clothing that started out primarily as workout wear. Now you can find hoodies made by famous clothing designers and ranging in price as high as the hundreds of dollars for some designs. Why has the hoodie become so popular? Let's take a look at who wears them the most.
The hoodie is definitely geared toward the younger generation. The urban clothing industry is definitely in the lead for the creation and marketing of hoodies. The trend can be traced back to rappers who wore them as a way of looking sinister. Now the trend has taken off and any urban clothing enthusiast would have at least one hoodie in their wardrobe. Famous hoodie brands include Christian Audigier, LRG, and BAPE (Bathing Ape). These clothing designers know what the young crowd want - unique designs that give the individual a sense of personal style.
But the coolness of a hair style really depends on the image you want to express. For example, a completely shaved head doesn't suit most people, or at least it certainly didn't work for my brother. I'd say that the classical cool hair cuts for men are spiky hair, long hair and small Mohawks.
Next, you should consider how many other people are wearing the style. If there are only a few and the style is relegated to certain social circles that you are a part of, it might be a good idea to get the cut especially if it is an expression of your style of dress. But if everyone is getting the cut, you would look like you were trying to copy off of everyone else instead of being yourself.
Hoodies will also always remain popular among the college crowd. There isn't a university that you can visit that doesn't proudly display their college name on a hooded sweatshirt. It is like an unwritten law for college students to own at least one college hoodie.
If you are worried about paying retail prices, think again. Many major department stores carry top brand hoodies and offer them at sale prices. You just have to be on the lookout for sale days. Even better deals can be found at online stores that specialize in urban clothing. Stay in style and comfort by adding a hoodie or two to your wardrobe.
