My buddy The Monkey has a new hoodie out. It’s manufactured of mid-weight fleece (9oz 50/50 cotton poly blend) and featured thumb holes on the sleeves (which I personally really like). Fit is tight, so if you want it loose or if you carry concealed at the waist line you’ll want to order one or even two sizes up (if you pull instead of sweep, anyway). The front opening of the Hoodie RAW is a YKK zipper with front muff pockets and there are 4″ x 4″ hook and loop squares for the by-now-mandatory. It’s currently available in OD and charcoal and at $44 it’s by no means on the mid or even high end of ridiculously expensive haute tacticouture.

Oh, and for those who were wondering, RAW isn’t an acronym. It’s the official Monkey-ese term for their simple garments.
I wish I’d had one of these to try out at the Victory First class, but there will be future opportunities I’m sure…I’m hoping he eventually does one that’s a straight pullover, without the zipper. We’ll see.
