The 19 Best Hoodies for Men in 2022

There’s no denying that we all live in hoodies as a result of the ongoing pandemic, one that led us to work from home and dress more comfortably and casually all the while. There’s a right way and a wrong way to wear and shop for a hoodie, and we’ve got a few thoughts on what makes a great sweatshirt.

They bring comfort just by themselves on cooler days or layered with your best wool coat or other winter essentials on even colder days. With many of us still working from home, a hoodie’s also an excellent go-to around the house. Just make sure to layer it with a blazer for those important Zoom meetings.

With so many different options out there, finding the perfect hoodie can be a little challenging. Fabrics, colors, fit, drawstring, and zippers all play a role in the appearance of the coveted top, but in the end, it’s a performance and comfort regardless of the day of the week. You should always prioritize quality because, more than likely, you’ll be spending a lot of time in it. We rounded up some of the best hoodies for every style.

Best Overall Hoodie: Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover

A gray Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover.

There’s a reason this hoodie is guaranteed for 10 years (and likely to last well beyond that).

Wear this any time you feel like layering up casually.

Best Hoodie for the Outdoors: Relwen Superfleece Hoodie

Relwen takes iconic designs from the military and elsewhere, then ramps things up with premium fabrics, modern details, and high-grade durability.

Not in our book, because it’s a look made for days around town with family and friends. This AG hoodie is fitting coming from a brand that excels at denim, and it stands apart for the use of the brand’s exclusive Terry cotton, plus a muted wash.

The 8 Best Men’s Loungewear Sets to Wear Right Now
Best Loungewear Sets for Men

When loungewear transitions to a part of everyday life, it's important you treat it like any other wardrobe essential in your daily routine. The right t-shirt or sweatshirt and cozy pants or shorts can make all the difference, especially through multiple seasons. That's why the gear you wear at home should be every bit as stylish as the rest of your outdoor ensembles, and there's an easy place to start: Stylish loungewear.

And here's why: If we're hanging out at home in the same shirt and pants we wore to work (even if work was at home that day), we're sending a subtle signal to our unconscious minds that the daily grind really isn't over. That may result in a lack of sleep, an inability to relax, and worse, not being fully present with our families. The simple solution? Have a few pieces that you can wear around the house that are comfortable, but maybe not quite the rumpled pajamas that you'd wear to bed (assuming, of course, that you even wear pajamas). Grab a lounge set that you would be okay with wearing if a neighbor showed up, you decided to do a last-minute pizza run, or if have to walk the dog. Here are some of our favorite pieces (from some of the best men's clothing brands) that are cozy, but still look great.
