I love my hoodies. I have several from all different brands, different colours and I certainly wish that over the years they all continued to be a size medium. Unfortunately, that was not to be. For somehow, depending on where you live, the design of your home and the temperature inside, the hoodies tend to shrink in your closet and cause sighs and frowns.
However, like any other bit of clothing, it should be worn in the right manner or this could be a detriment to your health. I’ll explain that. Even when your hoodie is not over your head and it is just sitting around your neck, it can be very bulky and affect you from clearly seeing your blindspot over your left shoulder, when driving. This is even more of an issue if you are wearing a bulky winter jacket and the hood part tends to be even more bulkier. I have seen many people crossing roads with their hoodies over their heads and their heads pointed down looking at the roadway and their heads never come up for air. Wow! So dangerous. And it certainly raises questions walking into, say, a Bank, with a hoodie over your head. Now imagine this scenario; Night time and a bad guy, wearing a hoodie, comes up behind you to try and rob you or assault you and you are also wearing a hoodie. So he gets to hide himself and you don’t see him coming because your peripheral vision is just not there. Now theres two bad situations in one. Horses have blinkers on to limit their vision from side to side so that other horses wont distract them in a racing event. But of course, when wearing a hoodie over your head, you should not be in a race.
A hoodie was not made to hide yourself from people. It is meant as an easy assemble, since it is already attached, to keep our heads warm and resist the winds that challenge us sometimes.
I like the hoodies that are zippered from top to bottom for easy access, instead of no zipper and having to pull it all over my head which will in turn rustle up the hair on my head that has been gone for years. Theres nothing like a good solid, thick hoodie in cool weather. Just remember, even with the eyes and peripheral vision of a turkey, you still have to be so aware of your surroundings out there.
