Hoodies are extremely popular right now and many people wear them all year round. But, how did they come to be? When were they invented? Who was the first person to wear one? Hoodies have become more than just a fashion statement, and these questions should be answered in detail so that you can decide whether or not it’s appropriate to wear them out in public! Here’s the history of hoodies, to give you an idea of when and where this clothing item was born!
When did hooded sweatshirts get its start?
The hoodie was developed in the early 1920s by an unknown English tailor, who worked at Ching Lee’s on Hester Street in New York City.
Although hooded sweatshirts are most popular now, it wasn’t until 1987 that Champion Athletic Wear Company released its iconic pullover hoodie. With more than 50 years in operation, Champion Athletic Wear is a New York-based company that manufactures athletic clothing for men, women and children. Since then, many different companies have followed suit with their own version of hooded sweatshirts, including Nike and UGG. But we like to think our version is slightly different from everyone else’s! The hoodie became popular due to its versatility: not only does it help regulate body temperature, but there are ways you can style your winter outerwear into street wear fashion—and vice versa. A plain white tee or tank top paired with a pair of jeans (or skinny black pants) can be easily upgraded by throwing on a loose-fitting zip up or button down hoodie – also known as a bubble jacket among locals here in NYC.
How do I get more use out of my hoodie collection?
If you want to get even more use out of your hoodie collection, you can wear a hoodie while exercising. Pulling on a sweatshirt during a jog is as easy as putting on running shoes, and it’s one way to keep warm when it’s cold outside. If you’re interested in trying out some exercise-friendly hoodies, just make sure that your sweatshirt has a full zipper so that you can easily take it off if you get too hot. There are also many fabric blends available that allow heat to escape while keeping cool air locked in. However, if you do opt for a regular, non-sweatshirt hoodie, be sure to size up! Sweatshirts tend to be smaller than other clothes and therefore run tight—you don’t want your clothing restricting movement or becoming uncomfortable during an exercise session.
