Hello! Welcome to another week of Stuff We Like. This week's edition is brought to you by the letters H and F, as well as the number 17. Freddy is hosting so keep ahold of your seat and enjoy!
I love hoodies. I won't lie. I prefer them over coats any day. I am a winter/fall person to start with, so when the weather turns I get excited because it means I get to snuggle into my hoodie.
I have a collection of well-used and loved hoodies. Some are lined, some not. A couple have been with me for years (I have a brown and white stripped one I've had for nearly 7-8 years.) I don't like the flimsy, hey this could be a t-shirt ones, but well-made heavier material that feel good when you slip into them.
The he one in the picture above is probably the best made one I've ever gotten, and despite it being in excellent condition, I will probably get another.
The brand is American Giant. They are American made and have a selection of more than just hoodies. When they first arrived on the scene the wait was months and months to get just a hoodie, and honestly, I understand why. They are so well-made, feel so good against you (and if you have skin issues like me this is glorious indeed) and fit nicely. They do start a little stiff but as you wear them, the hoodies get more and more comfortable, like a good pair of jeans.
The brand is a direct order - so no physical stores anywhere - but they do that to keep the cost down. The hoodies and whatnot aren't cheap, but you won't be needing to buy a hoodie often, though you may end up buying more because they're so comfy.
