Corded Crews: 6 Reasons Your Wardrobe Absolutely Needs One

by John Amato

From its humble beginnings on the football field almost a hundred years ago, the sweatshirt has steadily gained popularity until it became a wardrobe essential—and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

As a result, different iterations of the humble sweatshirt have come up to suit every niche and need. One of our favorites is the corded crewneck sweatshirt. 

The corded crew is what you go for when style, comfort, and something a little different is what you’re looking for in a sweatshirt. 

Today, we explore:

  • Some of the benefits of corded crews
  • The different ways to style corded crews
  • A brief history of crewneck sweatshirts
  • What to look for in the best corded crews

By the time we’re done, you’ll agree that a corded crew sweatshirt is an absolute wardrobe essential, and you’ll also know where to find them.

1 - Corded Crew Sweatshirts Are Versatile

One of the best things about our Jupmode corded crews is that you can wear them with just about any outfit—shorts, jeans, skirts, slacks, dresses, you name it. You can also layer them over t-shirts and other tops when the weather gets cool. 

Additionally, you can easily dress them up or down to suit your style. 

For instance, you can put a corded crew sweatshirt under a blazer to achieve a preppy look, or throw it on over a t-shirt and shorts on a cool summer evening for a more relaxed outfit. 

Even switching from a relaxed to a form-fitting sweatshirt will completely change your look. Thankfully, the unrivaled comfort factor stays the same.

2 - Corded Crews Keep You Warm

For cold winter days or late-night campfire parties, a Jupmode corded crew is what you need to stay warm. The corded cotton fabric is exceptional at trapping body heat, keeping you comfy even when temperatures take a dip.

Corded sweatshirts are also ideal if you enjoy traveling or live in an area where the weather turns quickly. This is further aided by the fact that they can easily fold down to fit into your bag or carry-on. 

The corded cotton fabric is breathable enough to wear in temperate conditions comfortably and will keep you warm when temperatures drop suddenly. In the cold winter months, corded sweatshirts can easily be layered with jackets and trench coats to keep out the winter chill.

Overall, a corded crew sweatshirt is one of the best items of clothing to have close by, no matter the season or weather.

3 - Corded Crews Are Comfortable for Everyone

Similar to other fashion classics like denim jeans, our corded sweatshirts appeal to everyone regardless of gender. 

In part, this is because, at Jupmode, we make a conscious effort to use unisex designs that break away from the unrealistic size scales and tight silhouettes that characterize the apparel industry. 

Instead, we gear our sweatshirts towards a more relaxed and comfortable fit. But this is not to mean that our corded sweatshirts are any less stylish. They merely give you a lot more options with the way you style them.

For instance, ladies can add a belt to a long, loose-fitting sweatshirt to create a fashionable sweater dress that pairs well with some long boots. Guys can pair the same sweatshirt with jeans and sneakers, and it will still look just as snazzy.

4 - Corded Crews Are Perfect for Any Activity

Originally invented by Benjamin Russel in the 1920s, the crewneck sweatshirt started as an all-cotton football jersey. However, despite its origins on the field, the sweatshirt has evolved over the years to become more than just comfortable athletic wear. 

While it's true that sweatshirts are now more commonly used to keep wearers warm, the initial functionality from their practice jersey days is still woven into the design. 

For example, the classic loose fit means that sweatshirts are anything but restrictive. You can still enjoy a full range of motion no matter the activity.

The cotton fabric construction also makes sweatshirts sturdy enough to withstand some roughhousing, like when hiking and camping, while still keeping you warm and comfortable.

Indeed, the corded crew sweatshirt is just functional out on the field, on track, or under a blanket in front of your TV.

Given all this, it's no wonder that after almost a century sweatshirts remain one of the most practical clothing items, and that rings true with Jupmode’s corded crews.

Like our other corded sweatshirts, they are super cozy and made from 100 percent corded cotton. They have a relatively wide fit with a cropped length that cuts at the hips. But don’t let this scare you. 

We designed the cropped corded crew such that it will not show your midriff when paired with mid to high-waisted jeans. The cropped crew also pairs well with a t-shirt layered underneath, if that's more your style, and the fabric falls beautifully over your body without being stiff or clingy.

This makes our corded cropped crews perfect for everyday wear, whether you're going to class, running errands, or attending a football game.

6 - Custom Corded Crews Show Off Your Personality
