Legends has a bunch of hooper hoodies to chose from such as the Hawthorne Tech Hoodie, but our favorite is the Fairfax collection. This unisex, over-sized hoodie was designed and manufactured in their backyard of LA, and is made from 100% Heavyweight Cotton Fleece. Dipped cotton drawcords, an embroidered sleeve patch label, and rib cuff and hem details all add to a style that is street ready and always on trend. It also comes in black tie dye!

Check out this Nike All America Game hoodie from Breanna Stewart, and Diana Taurasi Phoenix Mercury issued hoodie. We like this Charlotte hoodie – a unisex heavy blend crewneck sweatshirt that’s comfortable. These garments are made from polyester and cotton.
