Buying A Hoodie

A hoodie is a sweatshirt with a hood, which seems simple enough until you go to buy one. Transfer Express apparel has 75 hoodie choices so where do you start? The information below should help.

Brands
We carry 12 different brands of hoodies. If the brand name is important to your customer, this may immediately narrow the choice. The brands we carry are Jerzees, District, District Made, Port & Company, Hanes, Gildan, Sport Tek, Russell, Anvil, Port Authority, Eddie Bauer, and Cornerstone.

Colors
There are hundreds of color choices. To help narrow your decision, find out if your customer is looking for a solid color or one of the pattern choices like tie-dye, real-tree or a sleeve stripe. If it is a standard color such as red or navy, almost all the style will come in that color. But if your customer is looking for a more unusual color such as brown, or a heather blue, this may help narrow your choices.

Weight
Hoodies come in weights from 6.5 oz. to 10 oz. Some customers like a heavy weight hoodie, especially if they will be wearing it as outerwear. I prefer a lighter weight to add a layer without bulk. Polyester hoodies will typically be lighter weight due to the lighter nature of that fabric, and a 100% cotton be a heavier weight.

Fabric
There are basically three hoodie fabrics – cotton, polyester or poly/cotton blends. Getting this choice from your customer first will help narrow down the choices and is really a personal preference.

Styles
The most popular style is the traditional pullover. However, we also have other fashion styles such as lace up, full zip, and a raw split neck.

Price
Just as there is a large range in colors and styles, one of the most important choices your customer will need to make is price. Prices range from $9 to $33 with many price points in between.

Conclusion
Hoodies are extremely popular and the trend doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Finding the right style for your customer can be a challenge, but our wide selection of choices should create a satisfied customer.

I like that you pointed out that the hoodie must be made out of cotton or polyester, and I like that they can be a mix of those as well. I will definitely keep that in mind when I buy a hoodie. The weather is just becoming too much for me to take which made me have hypothermia yesterday that is why I will be buying a hoodie tomorrow. Thanks for the tips!

It was nice of you to explain that there are three different types of fabrics, so one should choose personally what fabric is best for you. My uncle wants to get some hoddies for his worker, and he is not sure what style and material will be best. Hopefully, the article will give him an idea of what to look for so hew can get the hoddies he needs for this winter.

It’s great that you talked about hoodies and their fabric options. Recently, one of my cousins mentioned she’s thinking about starting an online shop. She wants to sell clothes online, so I believe this information could guide her. Thanks for the tips on choosing the right hoodie for your needs.
