Is the Todd Snyder + Champion Popover Hoodie the best of the best? We’ll leave that up to you, but for our money’s worth … it just might be.

Without any front chest logo, it’s a streamlined upgrade to your old college hoodie. The Popover Hoodie is casual enough to wear with jeans and a classic tee, or clean enough to throw on over a chambray shirt with tan herringbone trousers. – Buy It

American Giant Classic Pullover

American Giant Classic Pullover

American Giant is among a host of brands who’ve brought the hoodie back into prominence, thanks in large part to the brand’s durable construction and American manufacturing focus. The fact that the brand focuses on a great fit and an array of easily wearable colors is also a bonus for guys looking to upgrade their hoodie (something you should definitely be doing). And that simple style makes it easy to wear an American Giant hoodie with classic dark denim or chinos, plus easygoing staples like leather high-tops. That’s essential fall style to us. – Buy It

Saturdays NYC Logo Hoodie

Saturdays NYC Logo Hoodie

Some brands make a definitive statement in name alone — Saturdays NYC, with its Big Apple roots and recognizable vibe, is one of those brands for the modern man. Its branding isn’t too over-the-top — just cool enough. And that makes the Saturdays NYC Hooded Sweatshirt a fine purchase for plenty of weekend adventures (and beyond). Team it with rolled chinos and white leather sneakers when spring rolls around, and layer it now with a faded denim jacket for cool fall style. Don’t forget a Saturdays NYC oxford to finish off either outfit. – Buy It

Everlane Cashmere Hoodie

Everlane Cashmere Hoodie

Everyone’s favorite minimal menswear brand is back for the fall season with a beautifully crafted, easy-to-wear cashmere hoodie.

Made with a slim fit and featuring a lower price than traditional cashmere hoodies, this stunning hoodie is understated and seriously stylish. Team it with broken-in denim for a bit of rugged-refined style, or match it with tan herringbone trousers. – Buy It

Just add a classic leather field watch and get to it. – Buy It

Topo Designs Fleece Hoodie

Topo Designs Fleece Hoodie

Can a hoodie be technical, retro and decidedly stylish at the same time? The answer is yes, at least when it comes to the Topo Designs Fleece Hoodie. The trim fit is a modern touch to a piece that looks like it’s straight out of an old-school hiker’s pack, and the performance is similarly versatile. The hard face fleece sleeves add durability and functionality, while wind protection on the upper chest helps you brave the elements with ease. Full-front closure should also help keep you warm and dry, but the biggest point here is that this is one stylish hoodie. – Buy It

Lacoste Pullover Hoodie

Lacoste Pullover Hoodie

If you’re familiar with Lacoste for its utterly classic, instantly recognizable polos, you might want to add another item to your closet from the brand — the brand’s Pullover Hoodie. It’s a unique and refined take on the hooded sweatshirt, made with the type of breathable cotton that works perfectly for layering under a denim jacket or a leather moto jacket for instantly cool and casual style. It’s a bit of a splurge at nearly $100, but it’s a piece that you can easily wear all four seasons (as long as you layer properly, that is). Wait no longer! – Buy It

Nike Legacy Hoodie

Nike Legacy Hoodie

It wouldn’t be a list of the best men’s hoodies without including a sporty, stylish pick from Nike — agreed, right? The Legacy Hoodie absolutely plays off the brand’s, well, legacy of creating gear that looks great and performs quite well. The swoosh logo is instantly recognizable anywhere, and it’s a design touch that means this hoodie will work seamlessly with dark blue denim or slim grey joggers. And given that it’s Nike making it, you can certainly wear this hoodie to the gym or out on an early morning run — that’s a great mix of unbeatable casual and sporty style. – Buy It

Patagonia Midweight Hoodie

Patagonia Midweight Hoodie

Patagonia makes a slew of iconic outdoor products, and adding the brand’s instantly recognizable logo to the Fitz Roy Hoodie only emphasizes that even more. True to the brand’s commitment to the environment, the piece uses an organic cotton blend and even features sewing that’s Fair Trade certified. It’s a piece that’s made to be worn on your next hike or camping trip, but it’ll do just fine sitting around the bonfire, too. And when you need a stylish hoodie to throw on for a morning coffee-and-donuts run, the Patagonia Midweight Hoodie is the only one you need. – Buy It

Wallace & Barnes Hoodie

Wallace & Barnes Hoodie

J. Crew just gets what guys want — and the brand’s Wallace & Barnes line is a great reflection of that approach. It blends the classic and the modern into cool pieces that can go anywhere, like the hoodie seen above. It’s a layering piece fit for wearing with a flannel-lined waxed trucker jacket or on its own with black denim. This particular hoodie also draws inspiration from hoodies found in the 1930s and ‘40s, so it’s got plenty of historical pedigree and cool design to back it up. It’s a premium price for a premium hoodie, but it’s definitely worth it. – Buy It
