The Greatest Hoodie Ever Made

Five years ago, we set out to create a hoodie that would stand out from the competition. Heavyweight cotton fleece, reinforced elbow patches, and incredibly durable construction, all proudly made in the USA. The original classic full zip hoodie is the one that started it all.

The hoodie so tough, factories refused to make it

Hard to Make, Easy to Wear

We spent eight months working with former Apple engineer Philipe Manoux, who worked on the original iPhone, to build a better hoodie from the ground up. Our design process was grounded in an obsessive eye for detail and asking ourselves what need our products solve for our customers.

The end result is hard to make. So hard that many factories we approached told us it couldn't be done, not here in the USA. But we're always up for a challenge, and we knew we had to prove them wrong.

We Did the Hard Work
So You Can Do Yours

100% Cotton is Hard

Most sweatshirts are made from synthetic blends, which are easier to handle. But you sacrifice a luxe hand-feel and patina of cotton. We took on the challenge with Carolina Cotton Works to develop our custom heavyweight fleece.

Better Fit is Hard

It takes more panels, and more complex construction, which requires more labor. It costs more, but we think it's worth it.

Raising the Bar is Hard

The Classic Full Zip demands a skilled workforce, and state-of-the-art factories. That means investing in training, engineering, and facilities. When you buy anything American Giant makes you vote with your dollars for a stronger, more competitive manufacturing economy.
