Hoodies: the classics in skateboarding
Hardly any clothing is more closely related to the skate scene than the hoodie. Whether oversize with sleeve prints like in the 90s, or in neutral colours with a large brand logo on the chest – it’ll make a statement in any situation. With the hood, you can also isolate yourself from the world and concentrate completely on rolling.
The most hoodies are made of 100% cotton, which stays warm and makes them super comfortable to wear. Some pullover hoodies also have a blend of synthetic materials like polyester. These are even warmer, softer, and also more breathable than pure cotton. This is especially practical if you’re always on the move with your board and are quick to start sweating. In the product descriptions of every hoodie, you can find out which materials it’s made of.
The Thrasher Hoodie
The flaming logo from Thrasher is definitely one of the most famous logos in skateboarding. What used to be worn only by hardcore fans of the traditional skate magazine has now become a true hype product. Thrasher hoodies are now regularly being pulled over the heads of boys and girls outside of the scene and are no longer reserved for skaters only. Next to the flame logo, you’ll also find Thrasher hoodies with the Skategoat motif as well as the “Skate and Destroy” print in the skatedeluxe Online Skate Shop.
From Monastery to Mainstream - A Short History of the Hoodie
Even though many people would consider pullovers with hoods a modern invention, it’s not quite the case. In fact, the first examples of this style could already be found in the Middle Ages. What began as monk's garb developed in the following centuries into a warm outer layer for peasants and workers. The hoodie as we know it today made its first appearance in the 1930s, but it wasn’t until the mid-70s that it really became popular, with the advent of the Hip Hop culture and the iconic steps scene from Rocky.
From then on, it’s all been uphill for the hoodie, and despite its image problems due to its association with criminals, the practical and warming aspects of this type of pullover can’t be overlooked. Skating in a hoodie is as chill as it gets, which is why you can confidently choose a couple hoodies from your favourite brands to bring home!
