Although hoodies might look as a relatively new item, they have existed for quite a while. In fact, the first one were produced during the 1930s by Champion Products. Initially, they were mainly used for sport events as they could easily be worn regardless of the situation and weather. They were very light, casual, and they felt good on your body.
The weather component is the main reason why the product became so popular. Hoodies have a big level of adaptability and are especially great if you’re uncertain whether or not it is going to rain. They can also work well when its windy.
As the time went by, they became more and more popular among “urban kids” and in time, they became accepted even by older generations. Today, they are regarded as one of the best clothing items in the world.
