Hooded sweatshirts were popular with people who worked outdoors, way before they became fashionable and were called hoodies.
The origin of the hoodie goes back to the Middle Ages when the standard trappings for monks was a long tunic or robe with a cowl. The hooded sweatshirt as we know it today, was invented in the United States by Champion (an apparel manufacturer specializing in sportswear) in the 1930s and the word hoodie or hoody started to appear in popular culture in the 1990s.
Today, almost every major apparel brand offers a line of hoodies. Some high-end brands offer hoodies in high-performance fabrics, knitted silk, merino wool or other fabrics. With all of the different brands, styles, profiles, fabrics and colors of hoodies to choose from, it can be a bit overwhelming.
Whatever you do don’t buy cheap hoodies; they are thin, ill fitting, lose their color, shape and shrink excessively after the first wash. However, high quality hoodies can be costly, but fear not;
The Mohawk Valley Trading Co. has teamed up with Crooked Brook to sponsor some adult and kids hoodie giveaways.
(Image for example only. Brand, color, gender and size to be determined)
These giveaways are first quality, blank hoodies from Crooked Brook’s inventory. The brand, color, gender and size of the hoodie will be determined by what they have in stock at the time the winner is announced. Crooked Brook will try their best to send winner’s a hoodie as close to their request as possible.
Hopefully, for the next giveaway we can offer printed or embroidered custom hoodies.
