The men's sweatshirt has managed to remain a benchmark garment over its century-long existence, but has steadily changed its image and audience over time. Today the hoodie is a true fashion and streetwear icon for all ages and genders. Round neck sweatshirts, hoodies, men's zip sweatshirts... there are a wide variety of different sweatshirt models and styles. In this article, Project x Paris, the leading streetwear shop, reveals its buying guide and advice on how to wear a hoodie with style.

The hoodie - history of a garment with a changing image

If the hoodie is now a streetwear reference, adopted and accepted by a large public, its image has largely evolved during its history. Created in the 1920s, the sweatshirt was initially, as its name indicates, a garment intended to "sweat", worn either by workers or by sportsmen. It was Mohammed Ali, for example, who helped popularise the men's sweatshirt, giving it the image of the boxers' piece. In the rest of the 20th century, the sweatshirt (with or without a hood) was gradually adopted by students, by a more bourgeois class, before becoming the mainstream streetwear garment we know today.
