8 Promotional Hoodies For Your Next Marketing Campaign

Did you know that hooded sweatshirts have a history that dates back to the 1930s? First produced by American sportswear company Champion, sweatshirts were used as utilitarian garments by American workers who toiled in freezing New York warehouses. However, it was not until the 1970s that hoodies became popular as trendy clothing. Several high-profile designers began introducing hooded sweatshirts. And they became a rage among the young and old alike.

The term “hoodie” was coined in the 1990s. And there has been no looking back since then! Let’s look at why hoodies are so popular. Apart from the obvious warmth provided by hoodies, other benefits are:

i) High Versatility

A hoodie can be worn with anything. You can choose to wear a hoodie with jeans, khakis or chinos – they offer the perfect match and won’t disappoint.

ii) Maximum Comfort

Hoodies are made of soft and comfortable material that makes them a hit among consumers. What’s more, music enthusiasts can listen to their favorite music without worrying about earphones falling off!

iii) Sense of Style

Hoodies are a great addition to wardrobes and offer a great sense of style. A hoodie is as stylish as other trending apparel.
