The times, they are a-changin’; at least when it comes to stylish menswear. Take, for instance, the athletic staple that is the hooded sweatshirt. For our money’s worth, the best men’s hooded sweatshirts can exude both casual style and a bit of bold refinement; there really is a hooded sweatshirt out there for everyone (and at every price point). The best men’s hooded sweatshirts can even be worn a bit like a classic crewneck sweater or a cardigan, so feel free to pair up some of the options below with easygoing pieces like a crisp Oxford shirt and tan chinos. The best men’s hooded sweatshirts — and a whole world of potential new style choices — are yours for the taking.
Although better known for work week style staples like slim suits and shirting, Express has done a nice job with the aptly named Weekend Vintage Fleece Hoodie, the type of grab-and-go piece you can throw on over a crisp white tee or an Oxford shirt to blend the casual and the formal.

Want a hoodie that blends a fall-ready color with a very, very agreeable price? You want this number from Uniqlo. It nods to current trends but doesn’t veer too far into full-on fashion territory, no overly loud colors here, and we appreciate that.
