You’ve heard of distressed jeans, but have you heard of cool sweatshirts for guys that are ripped and distressed? They’ve been on the rise within streetwear communities for the past few years. It seems that the very popular trend for ripping/distressing jeans has meandered its way to other articles of clothing. At least among cool sweatshirts for guys, it looks radical.
To answer this, it requires two parts. Firstly, sure it is supposed to keep you warm, but at the same time, it’s not intended to be worn during days when it is below freezing outside. Cropped or distressed sweatshirts are the perfect staple for an edgier street look during the not-too-chilly fall days.
Let’s look at a few different styles from the stylish menswear brand, Differio. Differio offers a broad selection of men’s fashion sweatshirts that are normal, cropped or destroyed. So they’re the perfect brand to analyze for this article.
I figure it’d be best to start with the designer hoodies for men that were the most exposed. These are typically seen less often, given their more revealing nature. Because of the exposure, they’re a seasonally dependent choice. Fortunately, if the weather presents a somewhat warm or somewhat breezy day during the fall or spring, the cropped, cool hoodies for men are a perfect fit. The benefits to these are of course the airflow and ability to show off your muscles with a bit more pizazz. You can find the best style for this category from Differio via their “extreme cropped hoodie” item.
As for the cool sweatshirts for guys with moto zippers, this presents a style that is certainly edgier, but fit with a unique texture. Nowadays, standing out can often come down very heavily on the amount of texture prevalent within an outfit. Zippers, much like buttons, add a splash of such texture. Not only does this option stylistically pop, but also it presents a playful addition to the sweatshirt itself. One can imagine their significant other (or themselves to be honest) getting bored and likely playing with the zippers.
The destroyed look from Differio by Red Bridge is the perfect option for a casually exposed look (and they’re on sale now!). This shirt appears to take heavy inspiration from that of the distressed jeans look. It is great for the slightly chillier days when your cropped men’s fashion sweatshirts might not be a good idea. Even in the case of spring, the added airflow from these slits throughout the fabric will make the decision to wear this style much more appealing. Because we all know there are the days that you just want to rock longer sleeves.
Lastly, the least-edgiest look (but still darn cool) is the mesh look. It is quite common to see this look throughout t-shirts, especially at a club scene because the sex appeal from the mesh is absolutely a thing. Mesh will still provide that sweet airflow as well as give you the distressed idea you’re going for.
Hopefully this piece gave you some added insight into the world of adding some more distress and spice to your outfits. Rocking any of these pieces with some distressed jeans will probably look stunning. So get out there and try something a bit edgier this fall season!
