8 mens sweatshirts to snap up (because it’s time to get your own)

It's time to stop stealing your partner's comfy hoodies and invest in your own

8 mens sweatshirts to snap up (because it’s time to get your own)

I must confess that I am guilty of buying my partner a jumper with the sole intention that I will wear it. We’ve all done it, especially through the pandemic when an oversized hoodie makes much more sense than your work wardrobe – if you’ve been wearing fitted shirts through Covid-19, I salute you.

But after being “caught” either by my two brothers or partner for wearing a jumper I claimed, I had “no idea” where it is, I’ve had to adjust my tact. I never considered myself particularly keen on activewear but when I started to snoop in the menswear collections, I realised they have quite the breadth of options. Not only are they comfortable, surprisingly colourful and specifically designed not to cling to this mythical feminine hourglass figure, they also come in a much greater range of sizes.

Basically, they’re ideal for wearing in January 2022. Here’s our pick of high street favourites.
