Is there any designer out there that does it better than Todd Snyder when it comes to taking classic menswear staples and then making them fresh and modern? It’s up for debate, but there’s no question that with the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt (part of the excellent Todd Snyder + Champion partnership), he’s done it once again. For nearly a decade now, the Iowa-born Snyder (one of my favorite designers and one of the country’s best menswear designers) has worked with top brands like Champion to redefine the menswear game, turning once-purely functional, rugged pieces like the crewneck sweatshirt into bona fide style statements. Now, I’ve written plenty of Todd Snyder reviews on sweatshirts just like this, but it’s always worth revisiting as things get better each year in terms of style and design.
That’s what makes the Todd Snyder + Champion collaboration so cool to see, given that it results in pieces you can wear far beyond the confines of the gym, like the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt. The specs are an homage to past, highly durable crewneck sweatshirts, including the 18oz. French terry fabric that’s been garment-dyed for extra softness. It’s also the perfect sort of layer to wear with anything, including a rugged Todd Snyder waxed trucker jacket or Todd Snyder’s quilted shirt jacket — it only gets better from there, though.
The Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt has plenty of features to love, including added visual details like a chest pocket (added by Snyder himself in the original design), plus the contrast V-stitching at the neck for both durability and an old-school throwback touch. Raglan sleeve stitching is also a throwback Champion design touch that helps cement just how cool the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt really is — what’s not to love about a throwback approach? The hits keep coming, so to speak, with the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt, which is available in a stunning and highly versatile 12 colors.
That means there’s a shade of the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt to match with just about anything in your wardrobe, be it laidback Todd Snyder sweatshorts in the warmer months or hard-wearing Japanese selvedge denim in the colder months. The Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt is also fairly priced at under $100, making it a more-than-reasonable purchase when you consider that you can rock it under everything from a flannel shirt to a winter herringbone blazer. For classic style in casual and even business casual situations, make the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt your go-to winter style move.
