Introduction: What is the Commes de Garcons Hoodie?

It was initially released in three colors, black, white and red.Currently, there are six variants of the Commes de Garcons Hoodie on the market. They are available in colors black, navy blue, grey, white, red and yellow. The design comes from artist Vincent Desagnat and the brand’s name is a play on the French word for “hoodie” (raccommodation).
The term “couleur comme des garcons” (sometimes translated as “like a guy’s color”) or also “commes de garcon”, is used to indicate an item of clothing in a masculine/masculine-leaning color, in contrast to neutral or feminine colors. The term is derived from the phrase “comme des garcons” (meaning “like boys”), which is often used to refer to clothing that is “like a guy’s clothing”, but without being too sexualized.
The concept of the Commes de Garcons Hoodie was first introduced to the public in October 2011 by Vincent Desagnat, who was commissioned by the French clothing company Commes Des Garcons. The brand has since been receiving international attention from the media and bloggers.

How to Buy a Comme des Garçons Military Green Hoody Online or in a Department Store
There is a military green hoody in the French department store Colette and it costs €200 EUR. This hoody was released in 2011 and it is not possible to buy it online but you can try to find one in a physical store. In order to do so, you will have to go to Colette in Paris but this is a hassle and it may be difficult for you to find an authentic hoody.
I decided that I would write a tutorial on how to buy a comme des garçons hoodie online especially the military green one. The word “hoodie” is used in the sense of an oversized sweatshirt with a drawstring waistband and the word “sweatshirt” has been banned from the English language because of its association with sports clothing.
All the other hoodies I am referring to, apart from the military green one, have been released and so it is possible to buy them online.
The first step is to read the article that I published on how to spot a fake comme des garçons hoodie. This article is very important because it will teach you how to recognise authentic pieces and fake ones. Be sure to understand that the military green hoody is not available any more.
What are the Benefits of Owning a Comme des Garçons Military Green Hoody?
When the hoody was released in 2011, the French singer and actor Benjamin Biolay wore it several times, most notably on the cover of his album “Les Grandes Familles”, a part of his concert in Paris Bercy for his “Best Of” tour and on the picture for his single “Simple”, released in 2013. The hoody has since become a very popular piece of clothing among various celebrities and fashion enthusiasts.
With the increasing popularity of the hoody, it became inevitable for women to have one as well. Since there was no official Comme des Garçons hoody for women and the manufacturer only had female models, a crowd-loved hoody was made with the same style of logo as the man’s one.
To make it even more authentic, the pattern of the pockets is that of a military green camouflage pattern.
The functionality of the hoody is closely related to that of the male version, with a much more feminine cut and colors.
