I'm 37. Am I too old to wear a hoodie? Mine are all old and a bit rough so I was thinking I'd getting a new one but think I maybe too old now? I want something oversize and comfy (I'm size 12) but fear I should wear something fitted and smart.
Please help grin

I’m 38 and still like a hoodie.

Even my mum has a hoodie these days (late 60s). Wear what you like!

Is a nightmare before Christmas hoodie a step too far?

Hoodies are great for plane travel and early morning gym sessions (if you’re into such things), running to the shops etc. Wouldn’t wear them otherwise though

Love hoodies! I bought a new York fire dept hoodie on hol and can't wait for it to get cold and wear it!

There is nothing quite as cosy as an oversized hoodie on a cold winters evening. I also wear them quite often on school runs. I have a school leavers one from my DD's primary school, school logo and everything, myself and another mum who were class reps for year 6, thought we deserved hoodies for the all the work we had done for the year 6 class! Bit naff, but who cares.

I pretty much live in hoodies day to day other than when it's really hot. I don't know how many I have but it's over 20, both zip and sweatshirt style, mostly from Superdry, FatFace, Jack Wills, Saltrock and various outdoor brands like Rab. Love them!

Oh, and I'm 37 too!

I'm older than you OP and I still love a hoodie. Occasionally I wonder if I might be too old for them but then I wonder who makes those 'rules' and who I would be offending. I'm guessing no one I care about!

I don't think you can be too old for anything. I personally only wear one on a cold run. I find a nice chunky cardigan more cosy.

My dream is a cashmere hoodie. I keep asking Santa but I can't just the cost!

I prefer a sweatshirt with no hood.
Try Hush.

I would wear a nightmare before Christmas hoodie and i am older than you - where's it from??

Mailfuckoff Thu 16-Aug-18 17:36:43

Disney shop and its only 26 pounds so I'm considering it :-)

ElspethFlashman Thu 16-Aug-18 17:39:20

I don't really like them, too much material around the neck and they can make people look like students.

But for a Nightmare Before Christmas one, I'd definitely reconsider.

I wear them and I'm in my 40s. Go for it!

Ellapaella Thu 16-Aug-18 17:56:52

Hoodies are actually essential are they not? Even if not particularly stylish. I've had to buy a really warm one this year for camping (really heavily lined, totally unstylish but very very warm and cosy) and I've also had to buy a new one for evening dog walks. Just need something warm but not too hot for covering up in the evenings on walks so I got a nice (more stylish) one from Animal which is a nice cream colour and looks good with denim shorts, jeans etc.
I don't think anyone is 'too old' for a hoodie, everyone wears them.

Disney shop you say? grin

At 62, I have two and several more non-hooded sweatshirts. Don't sweat about how old you are, worry about your fitness. Couch potatoes look like... erm... potatoes, in sacks. They are not kind to flab, bluntly.

Wear what you like OP, you're a long time dead.wink

I have hoodies all year round.

Oly5 Fri 17-Aug-18 08:23:08

I’m 43 and wear them.. but mostly in the house and for camping. I also feel too old to wear them day to day!

I wear hoodies all the time apart from when it's hot. I wouldn't wear anything with a logo though.
