In my home we have discovered that shopping for hoodies for the male variety falls into the same category as shopping for jeans for ladies; it usually ends in tears and a nervous tic. The tic is mine as Husband says “no” to every possible suggestion that comes his way.
Ready-to-wear hoodies (all clothing, in fact) certainly have their place if you have a build that fits. If you happen to not, well – please see above…
To save me some eye rolling and exasperated “WHYYYYYYYY?”s, a Pin board was created with some examples of what MIIIIIIGHT be considered acceptable IF we can track them down/ they fit/ don’t have to sell a kidney to afford: Hoodie Pinspo (I may have snuck that one with the leather-look sleeves in when Husband wasn’t looking).
With this list of potentials (you may notice they’re all fairly similar) you’d think Husband has found at least one to call his very own… that would be incorrect. It’s come close; a few even made it home with us then seemed to shrink/ develop scratchy bits/ fade/ strangle him when he sneezes overnight. So now I have a collection of house hoodies (which I’m happy about, by the way).
There is one, though, that Husband loves and adores. It is faded beyond recognition and is falling apart. And it’s one of those hoodies whose origin remains a mystery (you know how some hoodies get stolen-swapped-traded and no one can tell you where they started life?). It is not a hoodie we have been able to replace.
But then… *drum roll*… look at these hoodies I can recreate with this new pattern!
Before today, no pattern offering has been deemed acceptable. And then there was the Comfy Cowl… it was as if angels started singing and rainbows danced out of the computer when he laid eyes on this pattern. Those very same eyes misted up with tears of hope because… FINALLY!
I look forward to stealing these and claiming them as my own. After all, that is the unspoken rule with husbands’ hoodies.
