I like the new hoodie, and I think the lining on the hood add a nice touch to it.
Of the topic, I have been hanging around this forum for the last half year, and from the point of view of someone that rides a motorcycle every day, it is interesting to see how the 'moto' style ends up in the oddest places around here. For the daily motorcycle driver, these things have a purpose. In terms of the off-center zipper on jackets, it serves two purposes. 1. The underneath panel goes all the way to the other side, so that the chest ends up having two layers of protection from the wind. 2. Most quality jacket makers will offer expansion panels that zip in-between the two zippers so that the jacket lasts 20+ years without having to be retailored for expanding guts.
Also, wearing a hoodie while going 70 mph is not my idea of a good time.
Anyway, back to the topic, I think you should add some white moto-style zippers on the cuffs. (They keep the wind from going up the sleeve). It would add to the look of the hoodie.
Haha! I was just wondering again, what "moto-style" meant. Now I know. I don't even like wearing a hood to drive a car, messes with my peripheral vision. However, none of this practical stuff diminishes the coolness off the recon. I do think the zippered cuffs would look cool.
