    Default 10yr Hoody

    I got this emailed to me today and thought it was a pretty cool idea. Just thought I would pass it along.

    Too gimmicky for me and expensive for a 100% cotton hoodie.

    Looks like hype to me. Wondering how many pairs of cotton boxer shorts they sell at $25 a pop.

    Seems like the benchmade of hoodies? Interesting warranty and concept. Thanks for sharing!

    Agree with it being too gimmicky. Hipsters pushing their "new idea". Not really orginal at all. Besides, if your hoodie gets ripped, are you really going to want to box it up, mail it for 13 bucks to get fixed, but your local shop will do it for 5 bucks on the stop?

    Now I do agree with America's having too much of a disposible mentality, but I do not plan on handing down a hoodie to my grand kids. Most of my Hoodies are old, I use them ALOT here in Minnesota, I get many years out of a Fruit of the Loom or Hanes brand for less than 20 bucks each.

    Good idea, and hype, aren't mutually exclusive. It's a good idea. But it's also hyped up. The company was featured in a BBC article, the demand for their product was so high that they couldn't fill it; "too successful".

    I know it's not American Made but my Carhartt hoody is 7 years old and the only real "wear and tear" on it was the color. I bought some black dye and that spruced it right up. I wear it almost constantly - but not in the woods.

    I like the concept of the linked hoody though (as a hoody is my urban uniform living in the city and all) but if you want to blow money on a good hoody I gotta say Carhartt did it right already.
