Everlane Made the Perfect Hoodie for Travel and Everyday Life
It’s totally comfortable and equally durable.
For as long as I can remember I’ve had multiple hoodies hanging in my closet — solids, patterns, branded — to mix and match with different pants, jeans, and, in the winter, warmer coats and jackets.
As I started traveling frequently, I quickly realized that a hoodie is ideal for sitting on a plane for a few reasons: it’s damn comfortable, keeps me warm in the sky, and I can pull the hood over my head to avoid talking to people and use as a makeshift pillow.

The reality is that not all hoodies are made the same — but after wearing a bunch of hoodies over the course of my 27 years, I think I’ve finally found my favorite: the French Terry Hoodie from Everlane.
Part of the Uniform collection, a series of “12 everyday basics that serve as the foundation for every man’s wardrobe,” the French Terry Hoodie is a timeless staple piece that belongs in everyone’s closet. The entire collection is tested 15 times the industry, which Everlane claims equals a years worth of washing, to ensure its durability for everyday use.
I prefer a nice pop of color, so I opted for the Dark Blue in a size small. On first arrival I found the hoodie to be a little stiff, but as soon I tried it on it was the perfect mix of sturdy and soft over a basic white t-shirt. The hoodie feels pretty fitted, unlike the oversized hoodies we’re used to from high school and college. If you’re looking for something less snug, opt for one size up. Ultimately, after a few days of wear, I felt completely at home in this luxe-feeling hoodie and realized I was going to need one in every color.

Even better, with Everlane’s 365-day guarantee, I know that if it gets a hole, shrinks, or starts to fade, the company will replace it without question.
Trust me, get this hoodie. Your next flight (and everyday life) is about to get a whole lot more comfortable.
