Stoked About Fit: Clothing Weight for the Eco-Conscious Surfer and Skater

Hey Stoked Fam!

We all know the feeling: pulling out that favorite tee or hoodie, only to find it's a bit snugger than you remember. Our bodies change, and that's totally awesome! But sometimes, clothing sizing can feel like a mystery. Here at Stoked Guy Clothing, we're passionate about finding the perfect fit that makes you feel confident and comfortable, shredding waves or conquering concrete.

Here's the thing: clothing weight is more important than a number on a tag. It's about how the fabric feels against your skin, how it moves with you, and how it performs in different conditions.

Let's dive into the world of clothing weight for surfers and skaters:

  • Lightweight (think tees and tanks): Perfect for those hot summer days, lightweight fabrics like organic cotton breathe easily and keep you cool. Look for weights around 140-160 gsm (grams per square meter).
  • Midweight (think classic tees and hoodies): This is your go-to weight for most activities. It offers a balance of comfort and warmth, making it ideal for layering. Midweight fabrics typically range from 160-210 gsm.
  • Heavyweight (think winter hoodies and sweats): When the temperature drops, heavyweight fabrics become your best friend. They provide warmth and insulation, perfect for those chilly mornings or post-surf sessions. Heavyweight fabrics can range from 210-300 gsm or more.

Here's the Stoked Guy twist:

We use all-natural, organic materials whenever possible. This not only feels great on your skin, but it's also better for the planet. Organic cotton is grown with minimal water and pesticides, making it a sustainable choice.

Finding the Perfect Fit:

Remember, size is just a number. Focus on how the clothing feels. We recommend checking out our size chart and considering the weight of the garment before you order. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions – we're always stoked to help!

Bonus Tip: Since we print-to-order to avoid waste, you can always grab a slightly larger size and know that your Stoked Guy threads are made with love for the planet.

Stoked for the Future:

At Stoked Guy Clothing, we believe in creating a positive impact. That's why we plant trees and clean oceanbound plastic with every order. We're all in this together, building a community of surfers, skaters, and eco-warriors who rock sick threads and care about the planet.
