Hoodies ? When it comes to hoodies, the first thing many people think of is sweaters. Sweater comes from the English version of SWEATER. In some coastal cities, older people know this name-thick knitted sportswear, long-sleeved sports and leisure fir, and the material is generally thicker than ordinary long-sleeved. The cuffs are tight and elastic, and the material under the clothes is the same as the cuffs. Next, let’s talk about the application, history and matching occasions of the hoodies on DTG printer.


A hoodie is a sweatshirt with a hood. Usually bring a drawstring to adjust the opening of the hood. Official explanation: A hoodie (also called a hooded sweatshirt or hoody) is a sweatshirt with a hood. They often include a muff sewn onto the lower front, a hood, and (usually) a drawstring to adjust the hood opening, and may have a vertical zipper down the center similar to a windbreaker style jacket.

The History

For centuries, hoodies have been considered part of men’s and women’s clothing. The name “hoodie” comes from the Anglo-Saxon word hōd (which is the same thing as “hat” in English). The style and form of this costume can be traced back to medieval Europe. The usual clothing of monks at that time included a large hood called a hood attached to a coat or robe. In addition, hooded cloaks and a kind of hat called Chaperon were also very common outfits among outdoor workers at that time.

The hoodles first appeared in Britain at least in the twelfth century, and it may have been imported during the Norman conquest of England. Hoodie began mass production for the first time in the United States in the 1930s. Modern hoodles were first produced by Champion in the 1930s, when hoodles were mainly sold to workers working in the severe cold areas of northern New York. The term “hoodie” became popular among the general public in the 1990s.

The Matching

We can wear our favorite hoodies at work and match styles. In recent years, workplace wear has become more and more diversified. By making good use of some skills or items, it is also possible to transform clothes that were originally “impossible” to wear to work into formal and fashionable OL styles. Hoodie and the so-called “formal” are basically difficult to equate. At this time, focus on the lower body. You can choose striped and checked trousers to increase the sense of professionalism.
