The Perfect Sweatshirt

I love sweatshirts. You love sweatshirts. Why? Because they're comfortable. Unfortunately, they also seem to be synonymous with a goofy, baggy, I-just-got-out-of-bed feel that no one really likes. However, a classic crewneck can be a staple, even the staple, in a well-rounded fall/winter wardrobe. The best include:

Reigning Champ Recycled Fleece Crewneck - considered by many to be the Cadillac of sweatshirts. And since I own one, I'll go ahead and agree. Handcrafted in Canada (probably the best thing to come out of that country, save Steve Nash). There are a few left at Haven.
Universal Works Heskin Sweatshirt - UW is a British outfitter who focuses on producing clean lined, honest menswear. The Heskin is a testament to their mission. The olive version is pictured above, but it's also available in red, royal, and a few other colors. The highlight of the Heskin is the contrast pigment-saturated elbow patches (not seen above). Oi Polloi still has some stock.
Alternative Apparel Eco Fleece Raglan - I love these guys because A) They're environmentally responsible and B) They're economically priced. You can get your own for 40 bones. Clean, classic, and understated - these things rule. Variety of colors available at Unionmade.

  4. @simplethreads - no problem! we love a good sweatshirt around here to throw on and go. thanks for the comment. hope florida is a lot warmer than where we're at.
    also, alternative apparel also has an eco-line that uses recycled rayon and polyester called "alternative earth."


  5. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..
