PSA: It’s officially hoodie season and we’re here to tell you where you can find the best hoodies in Melbourne. Spoiler, it’s at www.homie.com.au or at 296 Brunswick St, Fitzroy.
Some of us wear hoodies rain, hail or shine (*cough, the whole HoMie team) but for the majority, it’s not until autumn/winter and the cooler weather creeps in that hoodies in Melbourne become a wardrobe essential.
Hoodies, crewnecks, socks and chunky knit beanies are essentially THE starter back for Melbourne’s cooler weather (and beyond, for that matter). We have new hoodies every season, and new crewneck designs to take your pick, but we also have core designs consistently on hand for our HoMie monogram fiends or newbies on the block (welcome).
Whether you’re one to love a baggy, oversized hoodie, a fitted cut or buying a hoodie in Melbourne in-store for a mate - we’ve got you covered. If you’re game enough you might go for a matching set of hoodies and trackpants, we might be biased because we think these are iconic seasonal must haves, but as the saying goes, you do you.
Our HoMie hoodies (and everything for that matter) is extra special though - if you don’t know why, here’s some essential reading:
100% of profits from HoMie garments go towards achieving our mission, to support young people affected by homelessness or hardship to equip them with the skills, confidence and experiences to be work-ready and better prepared for their future. You can learn more about our programs here.
That means - while you start to plan your winter shopping wishlist, it’s good to ask yourself - is this item meaningful? Was it ethically produced? You get the gist. Especially in the climate we’re in, it’s particularly important to make ethical, meaningful choices when it comes to our shopping habits. You can trust that when you shop with HoMie, you’re also providing integral support to our programs and team which in turn, support young people in Melbourne and beyond who are affected by hardship one way or another.
Outside of impact, style is obviously very important too. At HoMie we like to offer a variety of shades and designs in order to appeal for HoMie fans of all ages (we see you!) - this goes for our tees and long sleeves too!
We’ve got pastel shades, bold block colour and classics like grey marle, black and tan. Better yet? We’ve got the trackie pants to match because in case you missed it - since ~lockdowns~ were a thing, matching trackuits are 100% appropriate uniforms for chilly days. Whether it’s WFH, a coffee date, an op-shop run or you’re walking the Tan, it goes without saying the matching set will be widely accepted (and appreciated).
