Fall Picks: Velva Sheen Pullover Hoodies
Posted: Oct 28 2016
Like the grown-up version of a security blanket or stuffed animal, a dependable hoodie can transcend mere "staple clothing item" status into a must-have-at-all-times necessity. But how does a particular hoodie make that leap from mere clothing item to everyday wear? Well, it's gotta be soft. It's gotta fit just right. And it's gotta have that certain je nais se quoi that makes it stand out not just from the rest of your closet, but from every other hoodie out there. And we think we've found that hoodie for you, the softest, best-fitting, most subtly styled-out hooded sweatshirt available. And who else would it come from than Velva Sheen?
The Velva Sheen Pullover Hoodie hits all the right notes that'll make you want to wear it every single day. Crafted from 10 oz., 100% cotton fleece, it's pre-washed for maximum softness. Available in both a deep Navy and a military-esque olive drab that Velva Sheen calls Khaki, they'll look great with anything from weekend sweatpants to day-job khakis and night-out denim.
Like the rest of Velva Sheen's impeccably crafted knits, the Pullover Hoodie is inspired by athletic wear and sportswear from the 1950s and '60s. It features athletic-inspired raglan-sleeve construction, ribbing at the wrists and waist, and two individual hand-warmer pockets in front. The result is a vintage-inspired piece with a slim, modern fit that we predict you'll never want to take off.
The fit is aces, too – running on the slimmer side like most Velva Sheen items, the Pullover Hoodie features a longer cut than their other knits, as well as slim-fitting arms and a perfect hood that's neither too small nor too big. Combine that with the ultra-soft fabric and made-in-California quality of its construction, and you've got a certified winner. And if pullover hoodies aren't your thing, don't sweat (heh, get it?) – we've got zip-up hoodies from Velva Sheen coming soon. After all, we're in the midst of sweatshirt season, and we want you to find your new everyday companion at Freeman.
