Buy Hooded sweaters online
Hooded sweaters are ultra-comfortable sweaters that give the wearer a big scoop of attitude. Besides a fixed hood, hooded sweaters are most often equipped with a kangaroo pocket on the front. The first hoodies were created in the 1930s for labourers in the frozen warehouses of upstate New York. Since then, hooded sweaters have become mainstream fashion items that have transcended the garment’s original utilitarian purpose, similar to jeans
. The hoodie really took off in the ‘70s, when it became the uniform of the fast-growing hip hop culture. Many rappers and graffiti writers were appealed by the cool anonymity and vague menace that the hood provided. Its iconic appearance in the blockbuster film Rocky further boosted the popularity of the hooded sweater. In the ‘90s, the garment was adopted by skaters and surfers.
