Help me design a hoodie!

Love Song #3
set default image size: small | medium | wide
by Lando
Ragzie is super awesome and wants to make me an Alvin hoodie, but I don't know what it should look like! Zipper or no zipper, ribbing and piping choices, all that! I need suggestions! I want it to be totally fab, but I'm not much of a clothing designer. Help help help help

No Zipper. And on "Alvin" The "i" head should be Alvin Head. (If you get his name on it)

I don't think we're going to silkscreen anything, so putting on pictures would be tricky I think

Probably won't. Though, it would be cool to see it. Probably put some designs of him on there.

I could have the name going down one of the arms or something

That could be cool, or on the back of the jacket which can be bigger and that's where you can put the designs at =p ^^

I would go zipper just because a no zipper should be really big for it to look any good but the picture you have looks great I would buy one of those

I'd get it like the pic above but without stripes or zipper. Pullovers are the way of the future y'know

I thought those were onesies! if star trek is to be believed

Keep the stripes, loose the zipper.

Really quick and cheap edit, but here's my two cents~ http://i42.tinypic.com/zy9boo.png
But you're probably going for something a little more authentic, so feel free to disregard this. xD
Lando

that's really neat actually! Thanks for the ideas. I was also thinking of somehow making it asymmetrical in some way.
aelyrin

I love me some asymmetry, but I wonder how that would be done here.
I suppose if you went for a funky zipper design, it might work, but I'm not really sure of the functionality of a zipper that's not just straight vertical. It might look neat if it followed the lines of the A and pouch, though.
Lando

I thought about that! Maybe splitting down from the inside of one of the struts of the "A". I'll have to sketch it out

What's the deal with all the zipper hate? Pullovers mess up your hair. Plus they're much more difficult to take off if you've got clothing underneath. D:

Well the little guy originally doesn't have a zipper, so that might be part of it

Keep the zipper, unless you're overweight. If he can't do it, change the zipper out for one of the longer and/or wider ones as found on Aeropostale and AE hoodies. Make sure the draw strings coming from the hoodie are /thick./ No one likes spaghetti shoelace draw strings.
Lando
7 years, 2 months ago
No I'm not overweight, so that works!
would the wider zipper strip be visually confusing, cutting through the 'A' like that?

I agree thick drawstrings would be good. Not sure what color though
Paolo

I didn't mean the strip, but the zipper head. Cheaper hoodies use a similar zipper head as pants, which are small because on pants the zipper is supposed to be hidden. You don't want a small zipper head on the hoodie; it looks and feels cheap. Get a nicely shaped metal one.

Keep it like that XP.

Okay, mostly ignoring everyone's comments above ... the zipper thing for me comes down to comfort and climate ...

Now I wear hoodies pretty much all year round and the nice thing about the zipper is ... if you start getting hot you can un-zip it ... If you have the pullover type of hoodie then you either have it on or off, no middle ground - however if you don't want the zipper to show its pretty easy to have an extra seam in there with a piece of material that folds over the zip so you have (more or less) the look of a pullover with the versatility of a zipper.

I 110% agree.
Paolo

It's true that you can have a folded seam along each side of the zipper that basically hides the track when zipped up. I have a hoodie with such a seam I can PM to you. if you'd like.

>.> I love it just the way it's drawn. Zipper and all.

I say keep the zipper if you can make it unnoticeable

besides that, I love that design

Ribbing and piping??  This isn't a sex toy...or is it?  O.o

What about keeping the zipper but adding a Velcro cloth to pull over the zipper.
Avvess

Love the desing and I think zippers are okay it makes the hoodie more confortable.

Make super long sleeves so the hang down when your hands are not in the pockets.

I am not a designer too XD

everyone keeps saying no zipper, but i love hoodies with zippers, i think they are easier to put on imo. i wonder if anyone is actually thinking of functionality, or just what looks good to them. and i think what you have in the pic looks really good.
Lando

i love it as is sugercube. it looks great and i'de buy 1 in a heartbeat. i just want to know if u have other styles drafted or not

Looks awesome, I would keep the zipper and the stripes... Is the large A going to be an appliqué of other fabric, the same as the stripes? Maybe have the name "Alvin" embroidered in wide sitich space cursive along a sleeve or the back?  I'm sure it will be really cool, no matter the design!  I would love to make a Simon one for myself, but I hardly have the time anymore!

P.S. Did you know, in the province of Saskatchewan, a hoodie is called a "Bunny Hug"?!

I would buy that!

Maybe black, though, with the A and stripes in red. But that's my personal taste in colors for clothing.

Zipperless hoodies are way too snug around the neck for me, so I'd advise keeping the zipper unless it really doesn't bother you to have it as a pullover. Everything else looks fine though.

I like the zipper
