Just like your DVD collection -- Rushmore, The Matrix, Peter North's Encino Housewife Hookers -- your collection of hoodies is comfortably familiar, yet totally predictable. Vary it up, with Kazuo. Started in Little Tokyo by a former music video director inexplicably weary of telling girls to "put 'em on the glass," Kazuo borrows reference points from other iconic garments to take hoodies places they've never been (your washing machine not being one of those). Among their offerings: The Trenchcoat: Dangling to mid-thigh, this extra-long cotton hoodie will keep an extra four inches of thigh warm, even as it struggles to hide your fat ass.
The Motorcycle: Outfitted with a button'd collar and an offset zipper, this is for the guy who's man enough to ride a Harley, but woman enough to furtively conceal his helmet-hair.
The Military: This hoodie's lightweight, cut slim and boasts 4 pockets -- for rations, ammo, or your copy of Call of Duty 6: Escape from the Call of Duty. The current line also boasts t-shirts, overshirts, and seersucker shorts -- material that'll differentiate you as more leisureful than your fellow couch compadres as you wait for Bill Murray to jump in the pool, Keanu to tangle with Agent Smith, and Peter North to...take Brendan Fraser to high school?
