Hoodie - what is it? What is different from sweatshirts, sweatshirts? What to wear?
Now in everyday wardrobe, beauty and compatibility are no longer as important as convenience and practicality. But it’s very easy to get confused in a variety of foreign names of familiar items of clothing. For example, Hoodie - what is it? What makes hoodie look different from a sweatshirt or a sweatshirt? What of this fashion?
Different types of sweatshirts
Sweatshirt is sportswear. So called loose jacket with long sleeves. The sweatshirt can be either with a zipper or without any zipper. This is a very practical type of clothing. First, dense fabric retains heat well even on the coldest winter days. Secondly, the knitted fabric, from which sweatshirts are usually made, stretches only in width, which makes these jumpers also very durable. Sweatshirts are sewn from a mixture of cotton with lycra and polyester, as well as synthetic fibers (footer, fleece, sometimes used parquets).It is better to choose hoodies from the footer - this material retains heat better, but at the same time also contributes to the free circulation of air.
Sweatshirts are several types. There are at least a sweatshirt and hoodie. What it is? A sweatshirt is a loose crew-neck jumper with no fasteners. Put on a jumper over his head. Another distinctive feature of a sweatshirt is a triangle under the neckline, which is formed from two intersecting seams. Once there was a piece of fabric sewn in there that absorbed all the sweat, but now this element has only a decorative function. Sweatshirts are made of dense knitwear, warmed from the inside with fleece, nap or other materials.
What is Hoodie: Definition
Hoodie - what is it? This item of clothing is distinguished by the presence of a hood. This is an elongated sweater, which today is the most common model of sweatshirts. Hoodie - clothes with long sleeves, a pocket- "kangaroo", can also be lacing-utyazhka on the hood. This sweatshirt looks like an anorak - a slight twist with a hood that slips over your head.

origin of name
The name of sportswear comes from the English word hood, which means "hood." Generically, the word “hoodie” in Russian refers both to the middle and to the female gender. In favor of the first one, the similarity with “coat”, “kepi” speaks, and to the second variant, the generic concept - a sweatshirt - inclines. By the way, the English hood can also mean "area of the city", which directly indicates the connection of this free sweater with urban fashion.
The origin of the Russian "sweatshirt"
No less interesting is the history of the origin of the generic concept of the word “hoodie” - “sweatshirt”. It is interesting that there is a connection with the literary past. In his time, Leo Tolstoy wore a Russian peasant shirt, which, it would seem, was no different from the clothes of that time. But later in the same free shirt with long sleeves began to dress populists. They imitated Count Tolstoy, and not simple peasants. These people also called themselves “Tolstoyans”. A little later, another concept appeared that was referred to as a populist's shirt - “sweatshirt”. Today, this word with a rich history has become firmly established in the vocabulary of any young person.
Short story hoodie
Returning to Hoodie (what it is, it was described above), one can say that in the form in which this clothing exists now, it was first shown by Claire McKardel at one of the fashion shows in the United States. The first wave of Hoodie popularity is the seventies, when subcultures and hip-hop were rapidly developing in New York. Then sweatshirts were associated only with black representatives of the criminal community, but the designer decided to make this free jumper a forming element of his collection. Interest in the sweatshirt increased after the release of the movie "Rocky" (1976) with Sylvester Stallone in the lead role. Then the athletes and young people actively began to wear hoodie to be like the main character of the tape - Robert (Rocky) Balbou.
In the nineties, the hoodies became a symbol of a separate society of energetic youth. At the same time, such famous designers as Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani and Tommy Hilfiger turned their attention to sweatshirts. A free long sleeve sweater became the basis of their fashion collections, which the most famous models showed in New York, London and Paris.
