Since first getting our hands on Wellen’s Fisherman Sweater last season, we’ve become particularly enamored with the Southern California company’s innovative and eco-friendly Seawool construction — a rugged yet lightweight proprietary material crafted from an amalgamation of recycled plastic bottles and upcycled oyster shells. And just in time for the summer season, Wellen has applied this unique and sustainable textile construction to a range of warm-weather garments, expanding its original Seawool Collection to now include a lightweight hoodie.

This warm-weather take on the classic men’s fashion staple boast’s Wellen’s standard Seawool construction, though has also been infused with a percentage of rayon and spandex, resulting in a temperature regulating, quick-drying, and antimicrobial hoodie that’s immensely durable, soft to the touch, and offers natural UV protection. This surprisingly calculated yet understated design also includes a drawstring-free hood and a dropped rear hem and is devoid of ribbing at the hem or cuffs in order to afford better airflow. Wellen’s Seawool Collection has also grown to include a matching Seawool Henley that bestows the traditional two-button-collar long-sleeve with the same upcycled bottle and oyster shell construction. Available now, the Wellen Seawool Hoodie is priced at $68.
