Mission Workshop is one of our favorite apparel and gear manufacturers for a few simple reasons: they imbue all their offerings with a tremendous amount of style, substance, and longevity. So it should come as no surprise that, when it came time to upgrade the iconic hoodie, they did so with flying colors. Allow us to introduce the Grandmaster II Performance Hoodie.
As is the case with all their apparel, this wardrobe staple is handsome as hell — boasting clean lines and a subdued minimalist style. Of course, that pared-down silhouette hides away some pretty stellar features. For instance, they’ve built it from Cordura 4Ever fleece — a stretchy and comfortable fabric that’s also super-durable — making it almost more like casual-styled armor than a cloth jacket. And the smooth, snag- and tear-resistant exterior is complemented by a plush and soft high-pile interior. Best of all, it’s made here in NYC, USA. The Grandmaster II is available now for $215.
