A sweatshirt is an essential part of a person’s wardrobe and there are many different varieties and styles available for both men and women to choose from. However, since there are many types of sweatshirts on our website, let's learn a little more about what’s available.
Different Types Of Sweatshirt
Taking inspiration from classic tracksuit tops, zipped sweatshirts are versatile garments that complement most outfits. These sweatshirts are available with both half and full-length zippers and are ideal for taking to the gym or having with you whatever type of sport you’re doing.
Hoodies are not only warm but look exceptionally cool. Available with zips and without, a couple of decent hoodies should be in any style-conscious person’s wardrobe.
The humble crew neck sweatshirt has enjoyed a real renaissance in recent years. Looking equally as good adorned with your favourite brand’s logo or plain, crew neck sweaters look perfect with jeans or tracksuit bottoms.
Features and materials
When buying a sweatshirt, the most important thing to focus on is the fabric. Although sweatshirts aren’t usually worn directly against the skin, if you’re going to be doing intense physical exercise while wearing one, you should look for quick drying, lightweight and moisture-wicking materials in the product descriptions. Polyester works particularly well for this.
On the other hand, man-made materials like polyester and nylon have their downsides and you might want to opt for a more classic fabric like cotton or even wool. Naturally, many sweatshirts are available in these materials too.
Think about how warm you want your sweatshirt to be. It’s no good buying a super heavy sweatshirt if you intend to use it while hiking or live in a warmer climate.
Also, try to invest in a basic hoodie that is a darker colour like black or navy blue or even grey. These dark shades do not need to be washed as often and are compatible with all your everyday clothes.
Finally, look for a sweatshirt that comes with pockets i.e. by Bergans. This will help warm up your hands in case you leave your gloves at home. These pockets are also very handy for carrying headphones, your phone or your glasses. Make sure to take a good look at our range of sweatshirts and then invest in one that meets all your requirements.
