Generally speaking, hoodie sizes will match what you would typically wear in T-shirt sizes.
But as usual, there are exceptions; mostly to do with certain brands, styles, fit, and the differences between men’s and ladies’ cuts. Then you want to consider if personal style will come into play.
For example, some people want oversized hoodies. It’s a whole thing. Others may prefer them tight and form-fitting. This is why it’s important to know your end-user or target market. If you’re doing a group order for a team or your family, just ask around about what people prefer. Easy.
Think of it like this: there’s people’s actual size, and then there’s their preferred size.
When ordering online, the main thing to make sure to do is check the product specs to see if it matches with standard sizing, or compare styles. Also, take a look at the photos of the product on models, and compare them to other styles and brands. Look for areas that are baggy or tight– you may notice some major differences.
Standard fit vs fashion fit hoodies
Choices used to be limited as far as T-shirts, hoodies, and other custom sportswear. Then along came American Apparel and changed the game with side seams and “fashion fit” cuts. These items fit better and were more flattering.
Needless to say, they were a big hit. Nowadays there are many brands offering fashion fit (also known as retail fit, slim fit, Euro fit, or just fitted). Personally, I can’t wear the baggy standard fit stuff anymore. Ok, maybe at home.
Ladies’ apparel has always been fitted, but now some men’s styles hug the body and offer a slimmer profile for the more fashion-conscious. Often times these styles will also feature thinner, blended fabrics and well-designed details. You also pay a bit more, of course. But it’s worth it for something worn so often.
Read the descriptions carefully: if it doesn’t say fashion fit, retail fit, or slim fit, it’s probably standard.
