Fashion aficionados of TT, help me choose my next hoodie please!

My favourite hoodie has just been declared dead. I need a new one.

First decision - zipper or no zipper? I have two others with zippers. I'm often in and out of them so I find them practical and probably more versatile but I don't really know. Just wondering if I should try something different. I hear pullovers are more comfortable - never had one.

Second decision/dilemma - brand. Having trouble finding a pure cotton plain heavyweight hoodie. Don't want polyester or other synthetic stuff. Would like some choice in colour that goes beyond black/grey. Can anyone make any recommendations. I'm in Europe if that helps (or doesn't) but happy to look at US based stuff.

Price - up to $140 or so.

Thanks guys

You can find a plethora of Hoodies from Barbour, Tommy Hilfiger, etc fashion brands, but mostly they are very very thin, and as most online shops don't give any information about fabric weight, it is a bit of a lottery what you will get.

In general I have a preference for hoodies without a zipper. Zippers let air in, are heavy, and in general create other inconveniences.

Are the Adildas, Nike or Michael Jordan any good? What about FILA?
I have an Adidas ZNE Hoodie, which I use when it is moderately cool. It is absolutely amazing, as its collar is fantastic at stopping wind from getting in, but it is not cotton. I would recommend it to anyone in need of a good sports hoodie.

FILA in general have a very low quality of the materials of their casual lines. Same for Ellesse. They don't last and quickly start looking quite worn out.

Lacoste and Ralph Lauren, both tennis supporting companies, make some nice heavy weight cotton hoodies in the price range you are looking for. You can check out the colors available on their weight slights.

@Tennease - just checked out your link mate. Thank you. Not sure if you're aware that pretty much everything on this website is available from AliExpress at significantly less cost? Just a heads up for you in case you shop there regularly.
