In Medieval Europe, monks began wearing hooded capes for practical reasons. The hood protected them from the weather when they were outside. This became a standard part of the clothing for monks in Europe. Monastic orders, such as the Benedictines, adopted the hooded cape as part of their religious attire.



in the 1930s, the hooded pullover stands as a utilitarian garment. American clothing manufacturers experimented with fabrics traditionally used in undergarment mills. This gave rise to what we now recognize as the hoodie. The apparel company, currently known as Champion Athletic Apparel, is situated in Rochester, upstate New York. It crafted the first hoodie by adding a hood to the sweatshirt. Designed to provide warmth and protection for athletes and laborers from the harsh winters. This paved the way for the hoodie's evolution into mass-market sportswear during the 20th century.

In the subsequent decades, the hoodie gained traction in various spheres. Boxers made it their go-to attire, further solidifying its place in the realm of sports and entertainment. TV shows and characters began adopting the hoodie as a symbol of authenticity and relatability. Hoodies achieved widespread popularity, particularly among prominent figures in pop culture. The pivotal year of 1976 marked the release of "Rocky," adding a new layer of symbolism to the hoodie. The grey marl silhouette became an iconic representation in Stallone's portrayal. It also symbolized resilience and hard work. It reestablished the hoodie's connection to its working-class roots. This transformation catapulted the hoodie from utilitarian workwear to a symbol of determination. It firmly embedded the hoodie in mainstream society.
