j0ke5ter asks: I need some help finding the right casual hoodie sweater, but first a little backstory. I live in Phoenix, AZ where the cold winter only lasts about 2 months at the most, and it doesn’t get cold enough to warrant a heavy sweater. I’m in the market for something light, casual hoodie. Any ideas?
You’re in luck! There are quite a few places offering lightweight hoodies and sweaters (and maybe even hooded sweaters). Since you didn’t specify price range or sizes, I’ll give you a few options:
We’re deep into Macy’s discount season, so you’ll find some solid deals on hoodies from IZOD and a few other brands. If you’re willing to fork out a bit more cash, they do have hooded sweaters, but most of them are from Polo Ralph Lauren, and are probably heavier than you’d prefer. It’s worth a look as a few of the sweaters look a bit thinner than the rest.
Gulliva Luxe Quilted Big and Tall Hoodie
I’m a real fan of what Australia-based Gulliva is doing with big men’s clothing. Their Luxe Quilted Hoodie is stylish enough to be dressed up, but also works when you want to be more casual. It’s available in sizes from 2X to 6X, and costs $116.
You can depend on Old Navy for inexpensive options in their big and tall section. Their big and tall hoodies run to 3X, and the prices are hard to beat. The Sweater Knit Fleece Zip Hoodie on that page is a great option, especially considering you can get it for $25 right now.
Hopefully this helps you find the perfect hoodie for Arizona’s 2 months of cold. Good luck!
