What is the Willy California Zip-Up Hoodie?

The hoodie is a brand defining item in the men’s fashion space. The perfect mixture of the cool, street look and the functional warmth component is not easy to pull off. Quite honestly, most brands are so busy focusing on the coolness that they forget to give respect to the functional aspects. At its core, the hoodie should be warm enough to do its job in the morning and sleek enough to be worn all day long. The 501 Zip-Up Hoodie is Willy's best item yet.

The Willy 501 Zip-Up Hoodie is the “do anything” look for the busy guy on the go. A suit of armor for the guy whose day takes him in a hundred different directions. One carefully crafted piece that says cool, warm and serious all in one breath.

What Makes the 501 Zip-UP Hoodie so Amazing?

Like all things Willy California, the 501 Zip-up Hoodie rules because Willy matched a precisely engineered fabric blend with a stylish, sleek cut. The fabric in this case comes from a domestic mill that is synonymous with great outdoor brands. Think fleece jackets and undergarments for skiing. A polyester blend with significant tencel components to make sure this jacket moves when you move while keeping you warm all day long.

The fabric also gives the 501 Zip-Up Hoodie the structure to hold the look together. Too often hoodies are drapey and leave the guy looking un-kept. Cool is great but un-kept is not a word we want anywhere near us.

Kids like a hoodie that is oversized and blowing in the wind. These kids marry coolness with a slightly sloppy look and call it “grunge”. Professional guys on the go don’t do grunge. Willy's sleek and stylish cut serves as a shell to hold your look together to make you feel safe, zipped up and ready to go.

As usual, comfort is the key with WIlly California. It’s great that Willy's hoodie is warm and structured, but it’s also the most comfortable hoodie you will find. Soft on the skin and warm enough to ski in (actually). This is not a kid’s hoodie.

How to Use the Willy California Zip-Up Hoodie?

Grab the hoodie when you are simply not sure where the day will take you. This item was specifically designed for the cool California “winter” morning but has become so much more.  As company dress codes have become more and more casual, the hoodie has become accepted for work. And the 501 Zip-up Hoodie is at the top of the list.

Nothing says “guy on the go” like the Zip-up Hoodie. When you pull off this look, you are immediately 10 years younger and twice as important. Bouncing from meeting to meeting back and forth around town -- the Zip-up Hoodie is the perfect solution.

The secret sauce here is the Tencel fabric which gives Willy's hoodie the feeling of a protective wrap keeping you safe and secure. 

Tencel, is a fiber made from the wood pulp of trees that are grown and replaced on specialized tree farms. Unlike most cellulosic fabrics, Tencel is produced using recyclable, earth-friendly solvents. When blended with cotton, Tencel adds wrinkle-resistance and the lustrous feel of a silk.

When should I wear the 501?

A great hoodie has to be functional and stylish. Too often the hoodie space is ruined by frumpy pieces with too much coolness and not enough structure. At Willy focused on the two most important tenets of comfort and performance to nail what may be their best piece yet.
