So here’s the deal: I don’t really do zipper hoodies. I can’t tell you why, nor am I prepared to make a real case against them. I just don’t really wear them on purpose. I got rules* and them’s the rules. This Moto Hoodie from Dehen 1920, however, might just be the crazy cozy caveat I’ll let in.
(*If you think I have too many rules, you’re very much right. Onward.)
Crafted in the USA and made with a 100% worsted wool that was produced on vintage knitting machines, this half-zip pullover was done in a classic black colorway with a design that draws heavily from ‘40s motorcycle styles—down to the extended ribbing at the cuffs and hem. Elsewhere, this versatile jawn features monochromatic elbow patches sewn on the inside of the sleeve, a two-piece hood, a storm collar, a vintage Talon zipper and a kangaroo pocket at the waist.
And while this partially-zipped hoodie hasn’t reinvented winter’s most essential layering piece or anything, it’s certainly a bedrock-solid outfit anchor with a deserving place in any wardrobe.
Available for $295 at Division Road.
