I was talking about a t-shirt someone was wearing and described it as being a hooped design.

- Cue blank looks all round.

Surely this is an everyday expression and is completely unambiguous what a hooped t-shirt is.

I have no idea!

? horizontal stripes?

I know this only because DSs rugby shirt is described as hooped. Otherwise Id think the more normal description was horizontal stripes.

I know! It's got stripes all the way round like hoops! 10/10 please?!

Never heard that expression before in my life and I'm 41.

I know. But only because of football shirts.

It's knitted like a sock and has no side seams.

I would assume that it had a hoop in in, like a wedding dress or a clown costume!

No idea. Never heard that expression in my life.

Like redhat, I only know what it means because of DS's football shirt (blue and white hoops, fyi grin).

red hat

Yep you've got it. Like this.

I've never heard of it.

Maybe just a football kit thing then?

BeJayKayven Wed 20-Jul-16 20:19:54

Ah, stripey 🙂

I'd say the picture was stripy. Hoops in my mind are like rugby shirts where there are two or three at most stripes going round (usually thicker)

DavidPuddy Wed 20-Jul-16 20:20:23

I know the expression, though I wouldn't use it. I think I heard it from my Father in law.

GiddyOnZackHunt Wed 20-Jul-16 20:20:30

Yes I'd have though of a 2 colour horizontal striped t shirt. Although I thought there might be summat trendy I'd missed.

I would have assumed it was like a hooped skirt, sorry. I've never heard that expression before.

DinosaursRoar Wed 20-Jul-16 20:21:08

I'd only heard t-shirts like that called as striped /horizontal striped

I would assume hooped meant something to do with the construction

JinkxMonsoon Wed 20-Jul-16 20:22:20

Nope, never heard of a hooped t shirt in my life. It's just stripey.

LikeDylanInTheMovies Wed 20-Jul-16 20:23:04

Ballet in my mind stripes run vertically and hoops run horizontally.

I'd know what it was - a horizontal striped top - hoops. Like a hula hoop, pretty normal description. My kids would say they had hooped tshirts, Celtic football have a few nicknames - one of them being "the Hoops" because of their kit.

Mari50 Wed 20-Jul-16 20:23:51

It's striped, sadly I know this because I live in the west of Scotland

wigglesrock Wed 20-Jul-16 20:24:21

LikeDylanintheMovies yup - stripes go up and down, hoops go across.

I would describe it as a striped T-shirt. As striped clothes usually have horizontal stripes people will assume that the stripes are in horizontal bands rather than vertical stripes.

The description hooped is not common parlance anywhere I have lived.

Never ever heard that before - hooped to me would mean something completely round in shape so I'd imagine some kind of weird clown/wedding dress affair.....
