Split Hoodie Photos Plus Fit Comments

Heathered Light Gray Split Hoodie, Yin Time Bag, and Obscurred Print Peek High Times. I got my Split Hoodie the other day and really like it. I've been waiting five years for a replacement for my beloved lightweight, now-fraying at the cuff Remix Light Hoodies and I think this is it. The French Terry is super soft and all cotton. There have been French Terry hoodies that have come out before but I always found them on the scratchy or stiff side, or they had a bad fit or weird design element when I just want a basic lightweight cotton but not schlumpy hoodie.

There are no thumbholes in this hoodie.

The fabric content is all cotton.

As for fit - I think the sleeves are a tad short for a typical lululemon item, for any other manufacturer these are standard length sleeves. It looks like the sleeves aren't shorter, the cuffs are just a bit looser so the ride back when I am doing things like driving. They're pretty much perfect for me at 5'5" but if you are tall I am not sure how you will like the length of the sleeves. The fit is very roomy and people have been sizing down in it but I'm not sure how that would affect the sleeve length. This is a lightweight hoodie, which I find perfect for my southern California climate. I've been wanting a plain, soft lightweight hoodie for years. So many have come out that are stiff or scratchy or have tight sleeves, been too short, have a huge hood, have an unlined hood, have a weird neckline, or have a mesh pleat in the back or some odd design element. I think the Split Hoodie is a very nice plain hoodie. However, I do have a couple of nits - I wish it had a garage zipper at the top of the neck. It just looks odd to me to not have that nice touch. It's super, super plain - nothing about this hoodie says "lululemon" - and I would have liked an embroidered logo to dress the hoodie up a bit. It doesn't have to be on the hood but a small one where the sticker usually goes would be a nice touch.

A couple of new colors were stealth uploaded on Friday - Black Grape and Naval Blue. My store had the Naval Blue, which I found rather dull in person. I ordered the Speckled Black, which is one of my favorite lululemon athletic grays. I already took the tags off it today and find it perfect so far.
