We know, hard to believe — comfortable crewneck sweatshirts are actually in style. While this might be a sign of the apocalypse (if we’re lucky, it’s the zombie apocalypse) it is actually most likely a way for fashion to incorporate an item that has long been a staple in, well, just about every guy’s closet. And if you can’t beat em, join em kind of thing.
That being said, there ARE some new rules (you knew it wasn’t going to be that easy). Mostly that your sweatshirt should actually fit (not big enough to accommodate two of you) and can be dressed up (seriously!) by pulling it on over a button down and/or wearing it under a casual blazer. In case your current go-to crewneck pullover sweatshirt doesn’t quite meet leaving-the-house standards (chili stains are still not okay), some picks for those of us on a budget:
1. Supersoft Heathered Pullover, $29.50, Gap
2. Heritage Athletic Crewneck, $54.50, Banana Republic
3. Nike 6.0 Blocked Mens Sweatshirt, $59.99, Tilly’s
