You know those hoodies that can hold like four iPads, two water bottles, 12 passports, an economy-sized toaster and the entire Riverdale cast? This (thankfully) isn’t that. This is the rock-solid Gym Hoodie from Knickerbocker—a super comfortable, timelessly styled piece that expertly draws on some of the most versatile, longest-lasting vintage designs around—and it is as billed.
Deftly produced in the USA from a high-density 100% cotton fabric and outfitted with retro details like a cutaway hood affixed to a ribbed collar, a kangaroo pocket at the waist and ribbing at the cuffs and hem, I really can find no issues with this period-perfect knitwear.
And if we’re being real with ourselves—a terrifying proposition, mostly—it’s probably better to have one good pouch pocket than 21 anyways. After all, it’s a hoodie, not a utility belt, and I already lose things in the pockets I’ve been allotted and I also digress.
So these don’t come with convertible hoods, tear-away zippers or possible lava-resistant properties, but they do come in five period-accurate colorways, each available for $135 at Knickerbocker.
