I'd rather see those hoodies on a lady than that crap from Ick-toria's Secret any day!

I stopped wearing hoodies when I was in my early 20s. If it is cold enough for a hood, I will wear a hat.

Up until last year I wore hoodies almost everyday during the cooler seasons, but somehow the zippers broke off so I don't even bother anymore. I just wear plain old sweatshirts I bought at K-Mart for like $8. I'm slowly evolving.

One of the zippers on one of my fave hoodies came off in the dryer...I'm wondering if I can get crafty & replace it somehow...

I love hoodies mostly for the front pockets though. I find the v-neck style on zip ups are flattering to my figure, whereas regular sweatshirts and way too square and boxy.

In winter, hoodies are great for layering over shirts and under jackets, too. They keep your neck warm and with long sleeves you can cover your hands. lol

Oh man - I love hoodies. They are so great in the fall and winter too. I have about 10 of them. Some of them I found in the Salvation Army, barely worn and only $8! One of them was a black Nike one, one was a light blue Adidas one. I bought two from my college that were $30, I got a couple Beatles ones for Christmas. My favorite one is an older Penn State hoodie that a friend of mine left at my house, he said I could keep it It is worn, and a little big, but it's perfect for loafing around the house, doing yardwork, walking the dog, just being lazy, etc!

Of course. It's just an ironic coincidence that they make you look just like that.

Oh, I hate many articles of clothing - baseball caps among them, particularly worn backwards.

That's about the age limit when they're still somewhat bearable.

Probably about 50, if you count coats that have hoodies.

What do you generally spend on hoodies?
Depends. I prefer to buy my clothes on sale but size small seems to go fast so if I don't wait, usually between $15.00 to $75.00.

I have about 3 hoodies and 2 of them I bought for 40-50,
while the one I just bought yesterday was 80. (thinking about returning -
can't believe i spent that much on clothing)
Keep them! Obviously you had a reason for buying them at the time and most hoodies go with everything, unless they're the sweatsuit type, which makes them totally casual.

I love hoodies!!

I have 2(three if you count my leathered hooded Levi's jacket). I have one on and this is the only one I really wear and it's a size medium and thin. The other one is a 2XL, which is too big for me now that I have lost some weight, and I have pretty much phased out of the baggy/over-sized clothes fashion.

I do! We live in the PNW. Hoodies are very popular here. "Dressing up" means putting on clean fleece or your newest hoodie, and clean jeans.

I have never counted them, but I have a ton of them. Mostly from various schools that I or my family has been or currently are affiliated with. Also sports teams and clubs and whatnot. I prolly have about 30 hoodies total, maybe more. My favorite is one that we bought as part of a fundraiser for our youngest sons old school. It's super soft and cozy and is the perfect shade of grey and didn't go funky in the wash like some hoodies do if you toss them in the dryer. It also says "COURAGE" on it which is cool.

The most I've ever spent is prolly around $60. On average I'd say they usually cost between $20 - $30.
