As well as pull-overs, we also have a great choice of zip-up hoodies. One example is this Gildan Men’s Vintage Hoodie. The hoodie is made with an air jet yarn which gives it a softer feel and no pilling. The heavy blend high quality hoodie has an unlined hood and contrast drawcord providing a contrasting retro look.

Our great choice of Women’s hoodies includes this AWDis Longline Hoodie. This long length feminine cut garment is of the same high quality of the AWDis college hoodie discussed earlier. As with that hoodie, it is available in a variety of colours and is easy to print on if needed.
