For skiers, snowboarders, career burglars, or chronic cold sufferers, these full-zip skeleton hoodies by LRG are quite the find. The brand was already popular in underground street fashion, but attained widespread infamy when Kanye West was spotted rocking an LRG skeleton hoodie.

Similar to regular hoodies, the zippers on these jackets simply extend to cover the wearer’s face. While the LRG brand features mesh eye holes, I did come across another brand in Times Square with no eye holes at all! Stats for Full-Zip Hoodies Trending: Older & Buzzing
