CHOOSING AN ELEVEN PARIS SWEATSHIRT
The greatest benefit of wearing sweatshirts is the comfort, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. The best sweatshirts, and the best streetwear in general, combine comfort AND style. Their soft, thick fabric keeps you warm during the Fall and Winter seasons, and their style keeps the streetwear spirit alive all year round.
When choosing a sweatshirt from Eleven Paris, consider how well its features, materials, and designs will suit your everyday lifestyle.
SWEATSHIRT OR HOODIE?
The Eleven Paris sweatshirt collection includes both sweatshirts and hoodies. It’s not uncommon that these two clothing types are grouped together under the category “sweatshirts”, however, there are some notable differences between them.
Let’s get the most obvious difference out of the way first: One has a hood and one doesn’t. Some people prefer the versatility of a hood, especially in cooler weather, since it can be used to keep your ears warm. Others prefer the sense of freedom that comes from wearing a sweatshirt with no hood. Less obvious differences between hoodies and sweatshirts involve their collars, sleeves, and their overall fit. Here’s a brief overview comparing common differences between hoodies and sweatshirts…
Collar: With hoodies, the collar blends into the hood, making the collar area thicker and more V-shaped. The collars on sweatshirts are relatively thin, and usually round, although some are V-shaped.
Sleeves: Hoodie sleeves are slightly longer than that of sweatshirts.
Fit: Hoodies tend to fit more loosely, whereas sweatshirts fit more snuggly.
Not all of these differences are found in every hoodie or sweatshirt, but they’re common enough that the above list should at least guide you toward a final decision. Sweatshirt or hoodie, Eleven Paris has you covered.
Eleven Paris sweatshirts and hoodies are made with 100% cotton fabric. They are thick and durable, great for wearing in any conditions (assuming you don’t live in an icy tundra or an arid desert). They’ll keep you warm and comfy outside or in your home, no matter what you’re doing.
Even the graphics found on Eleven Paris sweatshirts are designed to feel comfortable. They are applied using a silk screen printing process to ensure they can withstand gradual deterioration, which can make sweatshirt graphics feel brittle.
To help maintain the comfort of your 100% cotton Eleven Paris sweatshirts, make sure you follow these instructions for washing and ironing:
Wash your Eleven Paris sweatshirts at 30°C/86°F.
Do not clean your sweatshirts with bleach.
When ironing, DO NOT go above 100°C/212°F.
Double check the tag inside the collar of your Eleven Paris sweatshirt for further restrictions.
The minimalist, referential style of other Eleven Paris clothing translates handsomely to the brand’s sweatshirts. Their designs are clean and simple, and they usually include a prominent graphic center chest, screen printed on top of a solid color fabric. One exception is the tie-dye “I am not a rapper” hoodie, although this Eleven Paris sweatshirt design is still very simple.
Depending on the mood you’re in, you may opt for vibrant or dull colors in your sweatshirt. Eleven Paris offers plenty of options when it comes to colors, despite sticking somewhat rigidly to a dual-color scheme for most of their sweatshirts. It doesn’t change the fact that the yellow on black Shenron Neon Hoodie gives off a completely different vibe from the green on white Call My Dealer Terry Hoodie, but some people prefer more than two colors in their clothing. There are other sweatshirts in the Eleven Paris collection that experiment with greater color diversity.
Eleven Paris sweatshirts are designed to be stylish for both men and women. Most are unisex, but there are also some Eleven Paris sweatshirts specifically designed for women.
