American Giant, a San Francisco-based clothing line, sells a hoodie that many consider to be the greatest hoodie of all time. But how can a simple hoodie get so popular?

Countless consumers all over the internet have called this American Giant "Heavyweight Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt"  the greatest hoodie to ever exist. With hoodie enthusiasts waiting months on end just to get their orders, it seems like the $89 hoodie that broke the internet is clothing for the gods themselves.

When Judi heard about this craze, which began back in 2013 when a Slate article claimed it was the "best sweatshirt known to man," she genuinely could not believe that people could wait months on end for an overpriced sweatshirt. She reasoned that a person could get a hoodie at Old Navy for under $20 and enjoy it just as much.

The story of "The Emperor's New Clothes" also came to mind. She feels like the story can be applied to this hoodie phenomenon; everyone's just hopping on the bandwagon just because it's the popular thing to do. It seems to her like no one is thinking for themselves anymore.
