Pullover hoodies earn a spot in many men’s closets, and for good reason. Not only are they cozy and stylish on their own, but they also make great layering pieces when temperatures start to drop. And if you buy a quality style that’s soft, durable and easy to slip on overhead, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll practically never want to take it off. For shopping made easy, FN rounded up some of our favorite men’s styles from well-respected brands like Champion and Carhartt. Each of our picks is offered in a wide range of sizes and features a front pocket for convenient storage.
