On this breezy, chilly spring day, I want to talk to you about a very important topic: hoodies.
I recently acquired this black, light-weight hoody.
I was a late-comer to the hoody and only bought this new one to replace the pink hoody I bought in 2003 to be my Cat Fur Sweater, the garment you wear in the house and don't mind if the cats take sheddy naps on your belly because it's not going to get worn outside and it will wash up easier than a sweater. Tragically, in addition to being spotted with coffee dribble, the original hoody kept shrinking laterally with each drying until ultimately it became a Regency Spencer jacket.
Charming in its own right, but not really warm on the mid-section.
Obviously, the new color choice is less suitable for Cat Wear, but it is ridiculously soft and just the right amount of warm for indoor use and outdoor use as a mid-layer. This is more traditional, Jimmy Style of hoody usage.
Jimmy has a number of different hoodies of varying weights and colors. In this photo taken at the Old River House, he is sporting my personal favorite, the AMSCRAY Neighborhoodie. When Jimmy's hoody was delivered, it came with a very sweet note that said something like, "You wacky New Yorkers-- AMSCRAY means scram in pig latin!" And indeed it does.
Thus, hoodies are not only practical for multiple uses and handsome in appearance, but they have a long, proud heritage.
