Hoodies are undoubtedly the bad boys of the fashion world, so it makes sense that designers are revisiting this comfortable staple. From Belstaff to Versace, expect to see all your favourite celebs sporting hoodies in 2016. Whether on stage at Coachella or slumming in LAX or a chic coffee house, hoodies are everything fashion could be; comfortable, versatile, and useful. They look good, feel good, and can be dressed up with accessories. While this isn’t a look all men will strive for, we love hoodies and think all men should own one. They are so much more than just throwing on after a blast at the gym.
These designer hoodies feature exotic materials, impeccable attention to detail, and a tailored fit to distinguish them from your usual sporty hoodie. The trick to wearing a hoodie as a man is to look at the style and fit, and avoid looking like you are going to soccer practice with your friends. Layer hoodies with interesting textiles and unique sneakers to create an upscale urban look, or dress them down in your denims with the addition of leather patches and ruffles to create a demi rock god look.
Below are five designer hoodies we love for 2016!
GIVENCHY biker sleeve hoodie $3,185.00
If you’re looking for a staple hoodie that will go with everything, then take a leaf out of Kayne’s stylebook and go to Givenchy. This has all the markings of a classic hoodie; it’s black, has leather, is fitted, and is casual enough to be worn every day thanks to drawstring tassels and oversized retro zippers.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN panelled hoodie $875.00
Alexander McQueen are taking casual hoodies to a new level with their two-tone texture panelled hoodie. We love the on-trend and retro classic drawstring details, along with the elbow patches. This would make a great addition to a preppy closet, and can be layered for school or work.

GIVENCHY sleeveless layered hoodie $1,960.00
For the trendsetters, the long layered and sleeveless hoodie is exactly on trend. These blew up in 2015 and show no sign of slowing down in 2016. What makes this hoodie stand out is the extra long fit and skinny detailing. Be weary of the trend if you have a few extra pounds as it may elongate your shape. However, if you are athletic, you are going to want to wear this every day.

VERSACE zipped up hoodie $1,139.02
If you want something a little more traditional then we love this printed hoodie from Versace. It has a classic fit and an oversized hood for the wannabe DJ in all of us. Add headphones, your backpack, and a skateboard, to make waves. This surfs up style also works well with board shorts for a casual beach look. However you wear it, it will wear you well.

BELSTAFF zipped hoodie $650.00
Perhaps our favourite, Belstaff has taken everything we love about the hoodie and brought it into 2016. The patches are on trend and the two-tone textures and colors catch the eye without being OTT. We could easily wear this into the office or off to a causal date. Pair with leather pants and exotic leather boots for a dressier look. This one has many miles it in.
