New York, NY (PRWEB) May 06, 2012
Hooded sweatshirts were popular with people who worked outdoors, way before they became fashionable and were called hoodies.

Physical address required for shipping; no PO boxes, US recipients only residing in one of the 48 contiguous states.
The origin of the hoodie goes back to the Middle Ages when the standard trappings for monks were 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.
