America has become overrun with hoodies. This is not a complaint in the least– some would say it’s a good thing due to the message and awareness. I have my personal opinions about hoodies and what’s behind them reaching the height of social consciousness, but that ain’t what this post is about.
There is a MASSIVE variety of hooded sweatshirts out there. The question, especially for any who profess any sort of nerd-dom, geekery or whatever, is what sort of hoodie are you wearing? Thankfully, I took to the interwebs to see what’s out there.
Below is a sampling of the variety of creatively themed hoodies I found. If we missed any, please feel free to add yours via the comments below!
