The men’s cashmere hoodie is an essential part of any guy’s wardrobe. During the week, you can roll out of bed and throw it on with 5-pocket pants or trousers for an easy business casual outfit. And on the weekends? It looks just as good with jeans or even shorts.

So, what separates a cashmere hoodie from the standard cotton style in your closet? A focus on fit and finer material.

When shopping for a men’s cashmere hoodie that will get you through more than just walking to the park for a socially distanced workout, look for styles that are more streamlined, aka slimmer through the middle and arms. This isn’t high school, and you’re not trying to smuggle a 40oz into a party.

As for fabrics, opt for materials that would typically be reserved for your favorite “nice” sweater, like merino wool, cashmere, or even a fine-gauge cotton.
