The Thursday Buy: Get This Classic Todd Snyder Crewneck for Summer Breezes

Tell me if you’ve run across this situation before, perhaps even this summer: Be it at the beach or on the boardwalk, or at a cabin bonfire, the sun goes down and you find yourself in need of a lightweight sweatshirt. The kind that’s not too overwhelming, nor too flimsy. The kind that’s got some character and perhaps some miles on it. I know the one you’re thinking of. Or at least, the one you’ll soon have in your life: It’s the Todd Snyder Indigo Surf Terry Sweatshirt, and it’s one of the best sweatshirts for men throughout all sorts of summer breezes. Now, Todd Snyder can make pieces that are both rugged and refined, like the best men’s chinos or the coolest denim jacket for men, just as well as he can make laidback, breezy essentials like a perfectly crafted indigo sweatshirt. Think of this crewneck sweatshirt like the sweatshirt you didn’t know you needed until, well, you really, really did. The weather sneaks up on us all, even on a sunny day, and it’s also helpful to have an extra layer handy in your tote bag, your weekender or your backpack. It goes beyond that, though: This is a Todd Snyder crewneck sweatshirt we’re talking about, after all.

And when it comes to even the most seemingly straightforward items, like the humble denim jacket and beyond, Snyder excels at giving them just enough character and class to stand apart from the rest of the pack. Just when you thought you’d seen it all, I’d wager you haven’t seen the quality and care that’s gone into this Todd Snyder crewneck sweatshirt, the kind that’s been perfectly crafted to feel like you’ve had it for years, straight out of the box. The beauty of that is, you will indeed have this Peruvian cotton crewneck for plenty of seasons and summer adventures ahead.

The Todd Snyder Indigo Terry Sweatshirt is built with a just-right blend of 98 percent cotton and 2 percent spandex, which gives this thing a crucial bit of stretch and comfort. And at 250 grams, this summer sweatshirt is lightweight enough to throw on over a T-shirt or even a grey Oxford shirt (watch out, some indigo transfer might occur!). The Todd Snyder Indigo Terry Sweatshirt naturally looks great alongside just about anything, especially casual style essentials like laidback chino or drawstring shorts (the Todd Snyder x Champion Collection has you covered there). It’s easygoing and yet pleasingly rugged, able to be worn underneath a waxed trucker jacket if it gets especially breezy. You surely didn’t expect anything less than the best from one of America’s top menswear designers, right? That’s what I thought. The raglan sleeves are also a worthwhile and classic touch.

Any way you choose to wear it, the Todd Snyder Indigo Terry Sweatshirt is going to pack up nicely, wear stylishly on the road and get even better as you rock it over the years (and yes, you’ll have this rugged crewneck sweatshirt for years). That makes it worth the higher price tag ($128 at Todd Snyder), but once the compliments start rolling in over a seemingly simple item, well, that’s when it starts to pay off. The same goes for every time you wear, too. Enjoy the summer with your new favorite sweatshirt in tow, my friends.
