What have Justin Bieber, Renee Zellweger, Princes William and Harry, Michelle Obama and Zara Phillips in common? They’ve all been spotted, out and proud, wearing their hoodies. What was introduced as essential work clothing in freezing New York warehouses eighty years ago has now become one of the world’s most recognisable pieces of clothing.
Second question – what have legendary fashion designers Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, and Giorgio Armani all introduced into their famous collections? You’ll probably have guessed the answer! With increasing numbers of older folk now wearing the garment as protection from biting winter winds, it’s surely true to say that the hoodie has definitely come of age.
What exactly is a hoodie?
One dictionary definition goes no further than describing it as “a hooded sweatshirt”. A more detailed explanation adds the muff (sometimes also called a kangaroo pocket) to keep your hands warm, drawstring to adjust the neck opening and, sometimes, a partial or full front zipper. To general tutting from some, hoodies have even been spotted being worn under a suit jacket!
How a hoodie spreads your message
One of the earliest developments in the use of embroidered hoodies was in US colleges; and now some schools in the UK have also included them as part of their uniform. They are a simple, terrific, and comfortable way of identifying your team – whether in an educational, sports, work or social environment. This can be for fun events, but also to present an effective marketing message about a business or organisation.
Moving the bar just one notch higher
Many hoodies already sport printed logos or messages across them. However, if you’d like to add just that extra touch of class to yours, help is at hand. With more than thirty years fashion wear experience, the people at Brandawear are experts at delivering a range of stunningly embroidered quality choices to help you create exactly the impression you wish.
About the embroidering process
Embroidery is accepted as the best way to produce truly high quality and long lasting designs for your hoodies. The process adds chain stitching directly into the garment to create your design. Embroidered hoodies are cost-effective because the design should outlast most other options. The original artwork, which Brandawear always assess for viability before starting the process, can use up to fifteen colours to produce a stunning finished effect for both slogans and logos.
Choosing your personalised hoodies
Before the process starts, you can select the most effective hoodie for the circumstances in which it will be worn. A visit to www.brandawear.co.uk will allow you first to examine their terrific range of quality garments, famous brand names, and sizes. Once that choice is made, you can then select your preferred colour. Simply enter the quantity you require and you can quickly place your embroidery on the breast, chest, sleeve or neck of the garment.
Within a few minutes, you’ll have designed your own hoodies, and your order will be confirmed. Before long their superbly embroidered logo or message will be proudly worn and effectively displayed for all the world to see. All those wearing it will surely feel good too!
