What Are the Most Important Things You Look for in a Hoodie?

Fall has arrived. With it has come cooler temperatures and crisper air. If you are like a lot of other people, fall is the season of hoodies, sweaters, and long sleeve flannel shirts. Here at Umai, we cannot help with the flannel shirts and sweaters. But we do have a great collection of hoodies waiting for you.


The hoodie is perfect for fall because it provides an extra bit of warmth without being overwhelming. Wear a T-shirt underneath and you can take your hoodie off when things start to get warm. Moreover, hoodies are good for both indoor and outdoor wear. Any one of our anime hoodies would be more than suitable for just about any occasion for which you would wear casual clothing.


With all that said, we know people have different preferences when it comes to hoodies. What is most important to you? Below are some of the things consumers ask about pretty frequently. Perhaps they are things you think about.


1. Comfort


Comfort is top priority to a lot of people. Can you blame them? Who wants to buy clothing that makes them feel uncomfortable? The great thing about hoodies is the material they are made from. It is a very soft material with a tight weave. It just kind of lays on your skin without creating too much friction. As long as the fit is right, it's easy to forget you're even wearing a hoodie.


On the other hand, some people do not like hoodies because they find the hood uncomfortable. That's fine. Crewneck sweatshirts work for them. The material is still just as soft and comfortable.


2. Colors and Graphics


Where comfort is a top priority for some, other people choose their hoodies and sweatshirts based primarily on what they look like. For example, you might be fond of a particular color. You might also prefer solids rather than hoodies with graphics or printing on them. It's all good. You have to wear whatever you purchase, so purchase whatever you like.


In our opinion, it's hard to go wrong with anime sweatshirts and hoodies. Whether you choose a crewneck or hooded sweatshirt, you are getting a high-quality piece of clothing adorned with fantastic original artwork from Umai. How do you beat that? You certainly can't beat it with a cheap, generic hoodie from a discount store.


3. Fit


How a sweatshirt or hoodie fits is pretty important to most people. You want something loose enough to allow freedom of movement. For some people, the bigger and bulkier, the better. At the same time, a sweatshirt that fits too tightly isn't going to be as comfortable. It also doesn't allow for a lot of extra layers underneath.


Note that when you are buying hoodies and sweatshirts online, it helps to know your size before you order. If you're not sure, you'll be happy to know that we provide a link to our own size chart on each product page. Our chart accounts for sizes in both inches and centimeters. We also include instructions on how to measure yourself at the bottom of the chart.


4. Price


Finally, the most important factor for some people is price. We get that. If you are working with a restricted budget, you want to get as much as you can for the amount you're spending. We believe our products are fairly priced considering the quality we offer along with our original anime artwork. We think you'll agree.


Fall is the season of crewneck sweatshirts and hoodies. If you are into anime, you'll love what we have to offer.
