Everyone needs a great hoodie - or 10 when they're this cute - in their closet.
We are a proud CANADIAN retailer for Ampersand Ave. Designed with love in Utah, the DoubleHood Sweatshirt has become a favourite for a very good reason!
Our boutique stocks them in sizes XS through 3XL - and it's honestly one that looks amazing on so many different body types. A feminine fit, lightweight and ultra soft sweatshirt most styles have thumbholes and a sweet side zipper detail.
We have had the opportunity to co-design two exclusives in 2018, the True North DoubleHood and the Canada Eh? DoubleHood ... with a couple more exclusive designs in the works for 2019!
Lets talk about fit ...
On our website, we have broken them down into three categories: Low Stretch, Moderate Stretch and Ultra Stretch. Each sweatshirt is cut from the same pattern, the stretchiness of the fabric changes the fit slightly.
The Moderate Stretch style is the most true-to-size fit. It usually has a nice amount of stretch to it, and people stick with their standard size. Like anything, if you prefer a loose fit size up. Most of the striped fabrics fall into the Moderate Stretch Category ... Black Stripe, See The Good, Quilted Colors.
The Low Stretch style is one that most like to size up in - without a lot of stretch some customers like to go up one from their typical size.
Majority love the Ultra Stretchy Style! Think about sizing down, the fabric has a ton of stretch to it making it quite a generous fit.
Personally, I am a size 8 - I wear the size small in the Ultra Stretchy styles and a Medium in the Moderate & Low Stretch DoubleHoods. Doreen, a size 14 typically wears the XL size, and does size down to a large for the Ultra Stretchy styles.
Now that we've got the sizing down, how the heck do you pick one?! Camo prints, floral accents, stripes, vintage florals, in all sorts of colors - there really is something for everyone. Go for the fun prints ... you'll be wearing it with jeans or leggings anyways!
Oh, and we should note that everything ships from our base in Airdrie, Alberta - we don't drop ship ... orders ship quickly, are priced in Canadian Dollars and originate in Canada so there will be no surprise duty charges.
Hope this helps, and as always we are here to answer any questions!
