The concept of a “best” hoodie is new. Just a few years ago, a hoodie was an afterthought. It’s what you lived in on the weekends while watching Breaking Bad. Your gym jacket. A billboard for letting people know where you went to college, which NFL team you root for, or whatever. But now workout wear has become fashion with a capital F—today, hoodies are not only one of the most ubiquitous items on runways and hanging on store racks, but they’ve become the ideal blank canvas for designers big and small to show off their attention to detail, fabric, and fit. Kanye turned it into a uniform, Givenchy’s shark-covered versions cost $800, and Elder Statesman makes poncho-inspired takes from cashmere. Yet, of the roughly one billion labels making cozy feel cool, no one nails the secret recipe quite as well as John Elliott with his raglan sleeve hoodie.
