It’ll serve you well in the After Times, too.
Man, I fuck heavy with the crewneck sweatshirt. Sure, it's hooded counterpart tends to get a lot of love these days, but if you've been sleeping on the crewneck up until now you're missing out big time. Shit slaps. Not only will the right crewneck sweatshirt keep you cozy inside of your borderline freezing home office (read: whichever chair you decided to prop up as close to the AC as possible) but over a fuzzy Zoom connection—fuzzy Zoom connections: the real standout accessory of the season—you can plausibly fool your gullible work colleagues into thinking you're wearing, like, an actual sweater. Fancy!
I'll level with you, I'm pretty damn picky when it comes to the hoodies I rock on a regular basis. Don't get me wrong, I understand the hype. Hell, I work with more than a few self-described amateur hoodie enthusiasts, and their devotion to the style is damn-near contagious. But I'm finicky when it comes to fit—shocker, I'm sure—and there's something about the way the hoodie falls around the neck that throws me off ever so slightly, leaving me feeling downright miserable any time I wear one I'm not completely satisfied with. (Listen, man, I never said being married to the game was easy.)
The crewneck sweatshirt, on the other hand, solves the problem by, uh, straight up getting rid of the thing entirely. Easy peasy. And if you're in the market for yet another ultra-soft, fleece-lined, absolute unit of a wardrobe staple, I'd highly recommend getting involved with the style that solves all your hoodie problems in one masterful stroke of bona fide design genius.
I don't always wear sweatshirts, but when I do, I wear crewnecks. Stay cozy, my friends.
