The Best Sweatshirts For Men

The sweatshirt is supreme among cold-weather workout staples. Not only are sweatshirts simple, comfortable and well fitting, they’re ultra-functional too. You see that little inverted triangle around the neckline of some of your favourites? That’s not just for show. That’s the near century-old feature of a crewneck sweatshirt, first put in place by Benjamin Russell Jr – American footballer and founder of US sportswear brand Russell Athletic – to reinforce the collar and help it resist any stretching it might suffer when put through its athletic paces. You’ll want to look for one of those if you’re planning on working out in your purchase rather than just proudly showing it off on the street.

But enough of the history lesson. Here’s a selection of the very best sweatshirts a man can buy right now. From classic brands enjoying a resurgence such as Diadora, to hardy, outdoorsy types from 66 North, there’s something here for you.

Jigsaw Menswear Cotton

A simple, understated design, this cool ecru sweatshirt by one of our favourite high-street labels is also available in navy blue. £34, buy on jigsaw-online.com

G-Star Raw DC Core

The army look never seems to go out of fashion, so you can keep pulling this camouflage print sweatshirt with dark blue ribbed collar, hem and sleeve trimming out of storage year after year. £85, buy on g-star.com

Chunk Playboy Cover 2013

You don’t find many prints on sweatshirts, but we’ll make an exception to the rule for this arresting image. £55, buy on chunkclothing.com

Soulland Omelette

Buy this bright orange sweatshirt from hip Scandinavian label Soulland and see if the enigmatic slogan lends you an air of mystery. €120 (around £111), buy on soulland.com
