Is sweatshirt just a type of sweater?
The way the material comes together is the primary difference between a crewneck and a sweater; crewneck sweatshirts typically have a much tighter thread pattern and are less breathable (to serve a specific function) while sweaters have looser knits. The design of a black sweatshirt works to accommodate sweating while exercising, so that the athlete may receive a better workout in a shorter period of time. As such, they are not as common in formal settings as sweaters, though they are suitable for contexts not involving exercise, such as walking during a cold day or working outside. The tight thread pattern also makes it easier for designers of white sweatshirts to incorporate (and for buyers to find) custom logos/brands/artwork on the products.
Are sweatshirts the same as black hoodies?
Though the standard sweatshirt design looks like a thick, long-sleeved shirt, hoodies for men are simply another type of the same product; sweatshirts with hoods, which people often call “hoodies,” allow the wearer to cover their neck and the back of their head in particularly cold weather. These designs may come with a pocket on the front to warm hands and/or a zipper to remove or put on the garment more easily.
What pairs well with graphic hoodies?
Since they are an athletic garment, it might be a good idea to sell or wear zip up hoodies alongside sweatpants or basketball shorts, and/or other exercise accessories like headbands, running shoes or boxing gloves. For casual use and outdoor work alike, jeans might prove to be a suitable pairing because they typically provide similar warmth. They don’t usually pair well with formal clothing, such as dress pants/slacks and blazers because of the informal nature of the garment.
