The rise of the luxurious basic was not without its growing pains. The sleeveless hoodie entered the fashion stratosphere in 2006, rose to its pinnacle during peak Dov Cherney circa 2008, and tempered sometime after Justin Bieber completed puberty. The sleeveless hoodie—most egregiously propagated by American Apparel—reflected a transition period for men’s fashion and its community’s biggest spenders in 2014. It was worn by post-emo kids, Chris Brown and most recognizably on Pete Wentz. Equally related is the sleeveless BDG hoodie, distinguishable from it’s American Apparel counterpart by its white zipper. The fact that I've now written over 100 words on sleeveless hoodies makes me very sad.
