Fall means cozy, and cozy means pullover hoodies. It’s just math!

After moving to Chicago from the Bay Area this summer, I can attest that men across the country grab a hoodie for even a hint of a breezy cool day.

But there is a difference between a hoodie outfit worn in the dark for a breakfast sandwich and a thoughtfully put together, casual and stylish hoodie outfit.

To definitely fall into the latter camp, make sure you know how to style a hoodie.

First? You have to start with a quality hoodie sweatshirt.

We all have our personal favorite hoodies that we feel nostalgic for from the heyday of high school sports, but it’s helpful to have elevated options without sacrificing comfort.

Enter Flint & Tinder 10 Year Pulloveronly available in Hackberry.

Comfortable with clean lines, a structured fit, and raglan sleeves that allow for a full range of motion, whether you’re tossing a pigskin or reaching for a book on the top shelf of the library. A good hoodie.

Not only is it unthinkably flat for a kangaroo pocket, but it’s also born in America.

The cotton comes from the Mississippi Delta, the fleece from South Carolina, the twill reinforcement tape (which helps keep everything in place) comes from Philadelphia (like me!), and it all comes together in Los Angeles.

Plus, this Bad Boy comes in six solid (in both senses of the word) color options, so there’s sure to be a color to match your wardrobe.

And once you’ve found the perfect shade and worn it until the seams rip, it’s repaired with a 10-year warranty.

If you choose an oversized fit with a jumpsuit, you can wear a slim-fitting hoodie underneath on cooler days and unbutton the front for a little game of peekaboo.

Alternatively, the jumpsuit can be worn with the sleeves tied at the waist and the bottoms cuffed up for a more relaxed, just-worn look.
