2014 Holiday Gift Guide: Clothing

alternative hoodie

#1. Alternative Eco-Heavy French Terry Zip Hoodie ($92 and up @ Amazon.com)
This zip-up makes for a great base layer on the slopes or when you’re shoveling snow. It’s also versatile enough to sport en route to happy hour or as a coat on chilly fall or spring evenings. Unlike some clothing from Alternative, this is one you can order your size and not worry it’ll feel painted on. We should also note that Alternative’s focus on social responsibility and sustainable manufacturing is super cool — they use 100 percent organic Pima cotton that’s been dyed naturally — and something we wish more companies would pick up on.
