Great video. I am kind of just starting out. How would I go about getting some of these hoodies printing a design on them and having them shipped to buyers? Do I have to do all of that manually by buying the hoodie, printing on it myself and then shipping it out or can I have a business do this process for me?
I live in hoodies... usually under a black bomber jacket, navy blue Topman Harrington, or Carhartt brown Carhartt Detroit Duck jacket.
Gildan/FotL (€10-€12): soft, reasonably warm, and with an excellent color selection (I have ten: light blue, light pink, Oxford [normal] navy, French [dark] navy, black, heather grey, burgundy, forest green, olive, and charcoal), they're great for around the house... but pill a bit much to stay looking good; check out Gildan's 'Dryblend' at about €15-€17 if you like your hoodies a bit heavier (what is 310g... about 9 oz? 9 oz as opposed to the normal 7-8 oz?). Three of my five Gildan are Dryblend, and they're noticeably heavier;
Topman (as low as €20 when on sale [which is frequently], €34 normally): Not as heavy as Champion or Carhartt, Topman is nevertheless my value-for-price winner. Their 100% cotton hoodies (I have light pink, antique olive khaki, and black) are so nice it makes me angry at their 25-30% polyester versions (I want burgundy, light blue, lilac, and stone in 100% cotton, ffs!);
12 oz. Champion Reverse Weave (€25-€35): the standard by which all others will be judged (I have navy [of course], grey [obviously], and burgundy [surprise!]);
13 oz. Carhartt Rain Defender (€40-€60): this bitch is so hardcore, it makes me want to go build a wall... or something (I own five: navy, dark grey, black, dark green, and the famous Carhartt brown).
Yeah, that's ten for around the house and ten for going out... and that's not even counting the ten... or so... 3D-print hoodies. Don't judge me.
1:51 Gildan; not for tall people, waistband ruins a e s t h e t i c . 4/10
3:54 Hanes F170; pills, has polyester. Good cuffing, no scrunching. 9/10
6:11 Champion Reverse Weave; fits well. More oomf, mucho thicc. 10/10
@Robert Nortmann The Hanes starts at 28 inches in length for the small size. Add 1 inch for every size you go up (eg. 3XL is 33 inches long).
Reverse Weave start at 27 inches in length for small and goes uo 1 inch for every size (so their 3XL would be 32 inches long).
So Hanes has 1 inch in length on the Champion.
Late response, but maybe it'll still help you.
hey avery, i really appreciate how you've grown after watching your channel for the past two years (personal style, staats, video style, music taste). there is a charm to the way you naturally interact with the camera as if it was a person you're casually having a conversation with, BUT when you make videos in this style of showing us and explaining garments, that nonchalant tone comes off as underprepared at times, and just not something i enjoy watching. i've found myself getting bored and starting to do something else, putting your videos in the background, even though i want to focus on what you're talking about. i think that your nonchalant style worked very well with your vlog series, which i find myself revisiting (especially "my day in 30 minutes") and i miss that. i don't know how you prepare for a video, but maybe even a bulleted list on you phone of the points you want to address would help. no shade, just some (hopefully) constructive criticism.
Hey Ave, fashion student here ~ in regards to the polyester (much like most synthetic fibres) is more water wicking but the differences are minuscule, not like a fabric that has been waxed or coated in another hydrophobic product. It might seem like that because it purely dries a lot quicker than a natural fibre. Also it resists wrinkling more as it's main pro. However polyesters are lest breathable so if you're a sweatyboi it'll make you clammy (:
I bought the comfort colors hoodie and I really like it. Its mid weight and is already kinda over-sized i ordered a small even though wear med comfort colors t shirts and it fits great. I do wish the waist band was a little wider but the body and sleeves are perfect. also the colors they got are the best.
AVE: NEED HELP! I need a boot for winter. I live in Boston so I need something that’ll hold up. My style is kinda a cross between technical-ish Scandinavian and classic New England prep. Lots of navy, Grey, and khaki. Noah x Nitty Gritty (store in Sweden). Suggestions?
Just a quick note. If you want a more slim fit Champion fit try the European line. They started out in 2001. I have a (Eddie Win) US version and a EU blank version. Totallly different sweaters. I made a vid about it but footage got lost in the sauce. Great informative video man
I have a "pigment dye" light blue Comfort Colors hoodie in the model you referenced in the video. Really nice quality, a super soft, very true to size fit. I'd highly recommend it. The way they dye their hoodies gives them a nice character as well.
Black Titan check depop or other casual shopping apps (maybe grailed but there isn’t too much normal champion on there compared to Supreme collabs etc.) you’ll find second hand top notch stuff for good prices
I tried the comfort colors hoodie, and the fit was pretty oversized. I would recommend sizing down unless you want the YEEZY YEEZY YEEZY SZN 1 look. Additionally, you should try out the Independent IND4000 or the Unisex Mason Fleece Pullover Hoodie from AA - I haven't myself but have heard some pretty positive things.
1 thing to add, there's a couple different styles of reverseweave, the s1051 s101 and then the UO/champion life (price go up in that order aswell) one haven't gotten a s1051, I do have the other 2 and the UO/ life are a bit more slim fitting while the s101 is alot more baggier kinda like the vintage college's team reverse weave stuff you find in thrifts, don't know if they are the exact models. Oh and Japan has all the sweet champ stuff we don't get just peep the #reverseweave on IG
For example, an American fashion company might source fabric in China and have the clothes manufactured in Vietnam, finished in Italy, and shipped to a warehouse in the United States for distribution to retail outlets internationally. The fashion industry has long been one of the largest employers in the United States, and it remains so in the 21st century. However, employment declined considerably as production increasingly moved overseas, especially to China. Because data on the fashion industry typically are reported for national economies and expressed in terms of the industry’s many separate sectors, aggregate figures for world production of textiles and clothing are difficult to obtain . However, by any measure, the industry accounts for a significant share of world economic output.
The fashion industry consists of four levels: the production of raw materials, principally fibres and textiles but also leather and fur; the production of fashion goods by designers, manufacturers, contractors, and others; retail sales; and various forms of advertising and promotion. These levels consist of many separate but interdependent sectors, all of which are devoted to the goal of satisfying consumer demand for apparel under conditions that enable participants in the industry to operate at a profit.
