Hoodies are the one clothing item that will never go out of style. They’re perfect for lounging around on a rainy winter’s day, throwing on after a solid gym session, or keeping as a go-out outer garment for when you have to step out on those chilly in-between days. But when it comes to work hoodies, which are the best, which should you choose for personalising, and which would work well with your entire team?
These are our favourite hoodie brands and our recommended hoodies from each category, all perfect for personalising to feature your brand identity.
Which Brand is Best for Work Hoodies?
Without a doubt, the brand AWDis makes the best hoodies. Available in various styles and cuts, AWDis makes hoodies fit for every person and every occasion. We particularly like their AWDis Just-Hoods College Hoodie – JH001.
Our second favourite designer hoodies are made by Stanley Stella. Having partnered with Stanley Stella for years now, we’ve had the privilege of personalising countless Stanley Stella hoodies for our clients. Today, we carry a number of hoodies by this brand.

Types of Work Hoodies
With so many hoodies out there and too many brands to choose from you might feel overwhelmed even just thinking about having to decide. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the best hoodies brands for work within a few common categories.
1. Work Hoodies for Men
Since a workday is typically between 8 and 12 hours, depending on your job, of course, the perfect work hoodie for anyone is something that is comfortable. That said, we recommend a full-zip style hoodie as they are one of the best hoodies for men and easier to put on and take off. They’re often made from more lightweight fabrics. Our best hoodie work hoodie to personalise is:
AWDis Just Hoods Organic Zoodie
2. Work Hoodies for Women
As mentioned above, the best hoodies for work are made from lightweight material as they can be worn for extended periods of time without becoming too warm. This said, women typically prefer garments that are more form-fitting. If this is what you’re looking for, we recommend:
Build Your Brand Women’s Merch Zip Hoodie
3. Work Full Zip Hoodies
This our favourite zip style hoodie by a long shot. Its premium quality, organic cotton blend fabric, and full zip style all add to it being the perfect customisable work hoodie for all.
Stanley Stella Unisex Connector Essential zip-thru Hoodie Sweatshirt
4. Thermal Work Hoodies
Working in the wintertime may require thermals, especially for those who have the commute to and from office. If this is the case, you may want to consider the work hoodie highlighted below. This hoodie is made from a heavy fabric and is unisex with a full zip.
Nimbus Williamsburg Fashionable Hooded Sweatshirt.
5. Heavy Duty Work Hoodies
Available in nearly every colour under the sun, this is the best heavy-duty work hoodie around. Its unisex pullover style and full customisability make it a great base for team branding.
Gildan Heavy Blend Hooded Sweatshirt
6. Hi-Vis Work Hoodies
Certain jobs come with very specific dress codes. And jobs that require strenuous labour or are within the construction industry often require Hi-Vis uniforms. It’s comfortable, warm and practical.The best hi-vis hoodie is:
Pro RTX High Visibility Hoodie RX740.
7. Embroidered Hoodies for Work
There are many ways to personalise your garments. And printing techniques are often thought of first. But have you considered embroidery? It is long-lasting, affordable, trendy, and most importantly, it’s an eco-friendly option. Adding your branding or logo to a garment with embroidery is a great and subtle way to elevate a garment.
8. Cheap Work Hoodies
At Garment Printing, we prefer not to partner with “cheap” low-quality brands. Why? Because we believe in providing garments that are sustainable and long-lasting, and we do not buy into the concept of fast fashion. That’s not to say we don’t cater to clients spending on a budget. Shop our personalised hoodies catalogue or get in touch and we’ll help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Can You Wear a Hoodie at Work?
In most cases, the answer is yes. But before you order your favourite work hoodie with a personalised touch, you may want to double-check with your manager.
Which Hoodies are Warmest?
When shopping for a warm hoodie, you should always look at the fabric and the weight of the garment. The warmest fabric for just about any article of clothing is wool. And it is indeed perfect if you’re looking for a warm hoodie. Another type of fabric to consider if you’re in the market for a warm hoodie is cotton.
How Can You Wear a Hoodie in Hot Weather?
We don’t recommend wearing a hoodie on hot days. Hoodies are some of the warmest garments out there and should be kept for colder days. But if you do want to wear a hoodie in the summertime, we suggest a cropped hoodie, an oversized hoodie or a sleeveless hooded sweatshirt.
At Garment Printing, we’re committed to carrying something for everyone. So whatever your hoodie, garment personalisation, or hoodie personalisation requirements, we’re guaranteed to have something for you. Get in touch today and we’ll help you make the right choice.
