It’s getting chilly out there, and some people would say it’s sweater weather. As big a fan of a nice sweater as I am, I prefer to call it “hoodie season.” Who doesn’t love a fun hoodie that you can just throw on to brave the blustery fall winds? Now if you make that fun hoodie 100% unique and super-spooky, then you have a winning combination that just can’t be ignored.
THE WOLFMAN, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, DRACULA, and FRANKENSTEIN are some of the most iconic figures of the spooky season. Halloween may be over, but it is just not the same without these semi-fluorescent-hued horrors dangling in the windows all hinge-limbed, plastered all over sugary treats, and tiny ghouls and goblins marching around trick-or-treating as their favorite monsters.
High-end men’s clothing line JCRT has rolled out 150 hooded-sweatshirt designs. Most of these patterns are a reflection of their plaids that they are most famous for. One of the patterns that caught my attention was a brightly-colored collage of classic Universal monster movies scenes, and it is a must-have for the season.
JCRT has taken those iconic faces both funny and terrifying and created a plaided masterpiece directly from the posters, costumes, and universally recognized colors synonymous with these archetypes of horror.
Each hoodie is cut in traditional fit, with an oversized hood and front pouch pocket, and a front zipper. The design can also be purchased as a pullover hoodie or as a classic crew-neck sweatshirt. They are sustainably produced, using their unique digital printing technology, without wasting a drop of dye or yards of unused fabric.
JCRT’s hand-drafted pattern uses a 19th-century technique to achieve a sweatshirt fit that is cozy and comfortable and still clean and tailored. They recommend sizing up for an extra slouchy look.
If that wasn’t enough, they also created a satchel bag with the same monstrous pattern. This is the perfect bag for every day, for carry-on or a weekend getaway. Their satchel bag is made from their signature soft but durable 100% cotton twill. Its generous interior can hold bulky items and essentials. It also has a reinforced base and straps for carrying extra-heavy loads, and a heavy gauge 2-way brass zipper.
