Origin of Crewneck Sweatshirts


            Classic crew neck sweatshirts have become a blueprint in Western fashion that will never be outdated due to its flexible styles, colors, and fabrics and its ability to be worn any time of day all year around. The origin of the sweatshirt came to be from Benjamin Russell who, in 1926, wanted to create a piece of clothing that wasn’t irritating to the skin. Thus came the sweatshirt production in 1930.


The idea of clothing was expanded once sports and fashion were the newest craze and only went up from there. Tired, rugged, and itchy styles were becoming too bothersome to handle which is why the sweatshirt came about to keep those wearing it warm, comfortable, and soothed.


Sweatshirts were known for its variety to assist those wearing them. These included keeping warm, soft cotton material, and absorbing sweat especially since the sweatshirt originated as athletic wear. The invention was a perfect contribution used to this day and has not gone out of style, but instead has been developed and raised throughout the decades. Truthfully a timeless article of clothing.


Following the development of a plain sweatshirt, came plain sweatpants that completed the set for athletes to wear. The potential led to advertisements of schools and brands to enhance the use of sweatshirts.


Brooklyn Cloth is a part of that elevation and includes many different styles and colors of the sweatshirt like our Stripe Sherpa Quarter Zip. This style has a classic hood, along with a mid-way zipper that makes taking it off and putting it on less of a hassle.
