Blank hoodies are the bedrock of the streetwear game. Not only are they universally worn garments, but for aspiring designers, they are some of the lowest barrier-to-entry products out there. See, to start a blank hoodie brand, it’s not like you have to literally make each hoodie yourself the way you would when it comes to, say, a pair of jeans. Thankfully for aspiring young design gods, there are companies out there specialize in making blank tees and hoodies that can be purchased at wholesale, printed on, and sold to customers.
Now, this isn’t some kind of secret — every company from Supreme to a kid who just signed up for Big Cartel goes to companies who are known for their T-shirts and hoodies, even if it's just a jumping off point (the big boys usually end up creating custom products using the company’s access to fabric and factories).
And though we all know about Champion and Gildan, we want to explore what other companies out there are turning out hoodies good enough to wear sans adornments.
Peep the best blank hoodies right now below
Darryl Brown Hoodie
Designed by a former railroad engineer turned Kanye West stylist, Darryl Brown offers an authentic and modern take on workwear. Based in Toledo, Ohio, the eponymous brand is inspired by the everyday clothes of the Midwest — and from both his and his father's work history.
The burgeoning designer has given us exactly that, pulling from personal ties to American workwear and Japanese streetwear. Here, the Darryl Brown-designed hoodie has a boxy but precisely relaxed silhouette. Its made from 100% cross-weave 12-oz fleece cotton, ensuring maximum comfort and durability. The monochromatic palette, minimal branding, and lack of kangaroo pouch give the hoodie a vintage but refined look. Wear this to the gym, in your home office, or out on date night.
Stateline Work Fit Hoodie
Compared to some of the choices on our list today, this charcoal grey hoodie fits true to size but still retains that relaxed and loose construction. Stateline is a brand that puts comfort and quality above flashy branding. Carefully placed detail on the hoodie's side paneling, hood, drawstrings, and cuffs all reflect the brand's commitment to attention to detail. You'll be comfortably and confidently wearing this hoodie for a while.
H&M Cotton Hoodie
H&M has given us some of the best blank hoodies in recent years. Their Blank Staples line has been a big hit among minimalist streetwear enthusiasts and anyone looking to refresh their loungewear. This cream hoodie is made from a hefty 14 oz organic cotton. The neutral hues, oversized fit, and heavily dropped shoulders make it a sweet layering piece for those cool summer nights.
Norse Projects Vagn Classic Hoody
Very few brands do quality minimalism as well as Norse Projects. It's distinctly Scandinavian, with a pure focus on the essentials, hence why you can't go wrong grabbing a hoodie or two from them. Its cotton fleece Vagn Classic Hoodie is cut in a regular fit and comes in a deep navy blue — a timeless color that is an adept go-to if you have no idea what to throw on for the day.
Acne Studio Forres Logo-Tab Hooded Sweatshirt
You need a grey hoodie. Let me rephrase that. You need a quality grey hoodie. It is the ultimate blank staple with an infinite amount of possibilities. Want to throw it under a leather jacket? Done. Can you wear it with jeans? Hell yes. Under an oversized blazer? You don't even have to ask. Though all of our choices today share some of this versatility, there is something a bit more polished about a grey hoodie. Acne Studios' relaxed heather-grey hooded sweatshirt is one of the best options out there for you at the moment.
FEAR OF GOD "The Vintage" Hoodie
FEAR OF GOD has emerged as a leader in the realms of streetwear blanks. Founder Jerry Lorenzo approaches the design and construction of sweatpants and hoodies with the same level of rigorous detail as a seasoned Italian tailor. Like its peers, the off-white hoodie is made from fleece cotton. However, ribbed cuffs on the hood are made from a wool and cashmere blend. An antiqued gold-tone stud fastening sits at the front of the hood while an embossed leather patch with FEAR OF GOD's logo sits on the back. God is in the details for this one.
visvim Jumbo Hoodie
Visvim's Hiroki Nakamura's mission is singular. He wants to create the best clothing, garments that last. Each product is a living, breathing story made using responsibly sourced premium materials and artisanal manufacturing processes.
Even a simple hoodie made by visvim is an exercise in masterful craftmanship, imbuing a sense of intrinsic value to the clothing rarely seen in fashion. The brown French terry hoodie above is made from a high-quality Japanese loopback cotton jersey. Its earthy color comes from the brand's use of soil to mud dyeing process. The high-quality blank hoodie is slightly oversized and cut to have extended drop sleeves, helping to give the garment an even more relaxed fit. If you have been looking to buy into the visvim ethos, this hoodie is an excellent place to start.
