Hoodlamb – Product Review – Hoodie

Hunt, our president, was given a hoodie for his birthday from Hoodlab in Denver. He hasn’t taken it off since. We decided to get with him this week for a product review, product testing, and some info about the brand. Grimey Gatsby reps the line all over the world but we thought there was no better way to show you the product than from the man himself. Contact us at thegatsby@thegrimeygatsby.com if you would like to see the Spring ’13 catalog and line.

GG: So have you washed that hoodie yet since you got it? Been wearing it an awful lot….

Hunt: I haven’t washed it yet but with the cold streak that just came through…I’m stoked to have this sucker. It’s body heat activated, hemp, upcycled plastic, sustainable, has pockets, and it’s tip top fashion. I don’t think I’ve looked at another jacket in the past month….

GG: What’s the product review so far?

Hunt: I’ve told just about anyone that has asked….”Get one before you wish you had.” I have to thank Cici & Adam for the gift. It’s been a life saver. The weight is perfect for the chilly mornings and late nights. The brand, Hemp HoodLamb, is steeped in international fashion, hemp markets, and the lifestyle of today.

GG: What’s the best selling point for you?

Hunt: It’s environmentally friendly!!! It helps the earth….I don’t have much more that I look for with a company. We started #4pieces for that exact reason….Vegan fur, hemp clothe, and real fashion…This rasta is happy with a smile.

GG: How hard have you tested the product?

Hunt: Hahaha – How’s 6 degrees on a morning dog walk and -3 degrees in Aspen for a late night stroll around the cobblestone? I put it to the test, plus I wear it so it gets beat up. I’m not clean or terribly fragile haha. I like to break stuff and see the limits on anything I do…it’s how I stay Gatsby. This hoodie is just as warm as an Oakley full length down trench or a Moncler puffy monster. It’s tested, proven, and gladly a part of my travel bag.

GG: Where can we get one!!!

Hunt: Hoodlab at 34th/Larimer in Downtown Denver or click on www.hoodlabstore.com

GG: What’s next for GG and HHL?

Hunt: We got X Games next week with a fashion show on top of Ajax Mtn. Not too shabby, I’d say….The spring/summer line is being ordered all over the world. Spreading the good word on hemp, fashion, and sustainability to the masses….enjoying the Hoodlab and art galleries to come…It never stops…can’t wait for 2013 with the Hoodlabsters.
