I, and everyone around my age who loves to dress casually, has and wears hooded sweatshirts, commonly refereed to as hoodies, on a fairly regular basis. The UK media portrays people who wear such garments as young vagabonds, hoodlums who are going to destroy decent society, but look at the video below and tell me what you see. It’s Steve Jobs, and he sure as hell isn’t wearing a black turtle neck, it’s a hoodie.
For all the shit people give me, and the youth, about how informal and how vulgar such a simple garment is, I think this is a testament to the fact that there is nothing wrong with our “style”, that perceptions have changed, and it is not us who have to adapt, but you.
So wear your hoodie with pride, because if the CEO of a 50 billion dollar a year company can wear one and feel no shame, then you should too.
