Sweatshirts

Post by Stevenloan » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:56 am

Hi everybody! According to the dictionary of Cambridge, "sweatshirt" means "a piece of informal clothing with long sleeves, usually made of thick cotton, worn on the upper part of the body", but in the following link, the gray sweatshirt looks like a gray hoodie because it has a hood. I'm really confused. Do sweatshirts and hoodies have the same meaning where you live?

Your answers would be greatly appreciated.

In my opinion, a hoodie is a sweatshirt with a hood.

I would differentiate between the two.

Someone once tried to convince me they were two different things - but I agree with you.
