Team-BHP Official Gear : Hoodies & Jackets (v3.0)!
 
v3.0

The v3.0 Team-BHP Hoodies (store link), have the same durable and comfortable DNA as the ones from previous years, though we've made several evolutionary changes...


Most notably, we now have 2 styles to choose from:
• A new collared jacket style. Can be worn with the collar upright, or folded down.

• The casual and comfy hoodie. This year, with a draw-string.
...everything else between the two styles is identical.

The 2 style options available:



Both styles get 3 totally new colours to choose from, based on votes by BHPians in this poll.


Anthracite Grey:


Navy Blue:


Red:

THE DETAILS

The chest print can be personalized with any string of text that you desire (or even left blank):

Here's what it looks like on the different colours:


Several BHPians wanted a large print on the rear of the sweatshirt too, so we've added that an optional extra. You can choose between the following 3 options on any colour and style:


The strip of woven tape that lines the inside of the zipper gets a sporty new design:


It wraps around the hood too:


Just a small detail: We've added a contrasting grey moon-patch (under the label), so the rectangular shaped stitching of the label doesn't show up on the rear of the hoodie:


Last year the contrasting red zipper (link) was a prominent design element. This year we've made the front of the hoodie a lot sleeker by concealing the heavy-duty 8mm zipper entirely (the fabric folds over it):


Practicality and safety for your belongings has been upped too. Not only are the pockets hidden away in a welt-pocket style, they're now secured by solid 5mm zippers as well. Bikers & active wearers will love this:


And to keep everyone happy, the hood gets drawstrings this year (the previous versions didn't - and a few BHPians requested this):


Some popular Team-BHP touches remain unchanged, like our under-the-hood labels (I4, V6, V8, V10, V12, W16):


And here's what the waist label looks like on each colour:

The Garment
These hoodies & jackets are made from a 300 GSM 90/10 poly-cotton blend fabric, just like the previous years.
A heat-fused inner-lining lets you wear your collar up or down, as per your preference.
There's fluffy super-soft fleece on the inside to keep you warm and the front pockets are lined with a soft single jersey material.
The cuffs and waistband have a snug fit and a small serving of Lycra to keep them elastic.
The front zipper makes these jackets more versatile in different weather conditions and aids ingress & egress.
The 8mm wide front zipper is super heavy-duty; in fact, it's the 335/45R18 of zippers. A gunmetal puller runs up and down its tracks. The pockets get 5mm zippers.

Prints & Personalization
All the text is heat-pressed on to the fabric, and has the sharpest edges you'll ever see on a print. It won't crack or fade over time either.
The personalized text can be a maximum of 20 characters in length (we've upped it by 2 characters this year). Numbers and special characters are allowed.
The text will always be printed in ALL CAPS, regardless of how it is entered.
You get the option of adding "Live to Drive" or "Live to Ride" as a rear print; or if you prefer a minimal look, you can skip it entirely.
Do check the store listing for how long the personalization process is likely to take, before your hoodie ships out...

Sizing
Attachment 1658420

Use the chart above to finalize the best size for you.
Last year's hoodies were a bit undersized, and you were encouraged to order a size larger in some cases. However, this time we've totally overhauled the sizing. You can order the size you most frequently do in stores & online shopping.
If comparing to the v2 hoodies, the M, L, 2XL & 3XL sizes have gotten noticeably larger for these Hoodies & Jackets.

Thread moved out from the Assembly Line. Enjoy the Hoodies/Jackets! :)

Thanks Rehaan for getting 'em hoodies out. I was almost on the verge of ordering two of them (one for me and one for my wife) but just confused regarding the size. I had ordered M v2 hoodie and it was a bit tight. Saw your note that M is slightly larger this time. I wear size 40 shirt. So is M still ok to order?

And how about for ladies? Is it universal fit?

Any chance if we can return them for size change if I have not customized it?

For reference: I'm 5'8" and 66 kg...

The v3 "M" fits me absolutely perfectly! (v2 M was really snug for me too)

The size difference between the "M" & "L" isn't too large, so I can wear a v3 "L" size as well, and its a nice comfort fit.

Given that you're taller and weigh +10kg to me, I'd suggest you pick "L" :)

Hoodies are pretty relaxed outerwear, so the fit is pretty universal. Several of my female friends have Team-BHP Hoodies (v1 & v2) and they wear them for several months during the year, thanks to overzealous office air-conditioning.


EDIT: I see a lot of people are choosing to leave the "Personalized Text" field blank. Here's a preview of what that will look like :)

But what's your shoulder measurement ?

If it was same as V2, I may have ordered L. Little confused now - L or M ?

Excuse the pedantic question, but what shade is the RED exactly?

We're a nitpicky bunch you see, it's gotta be just right!lol:stupid:

Edit:

Never mind, picked the blue.

Another question: Placed a CoD order, order status update is a bit confusing. It's marked 'Awaiting Payment', but status description says I need to pay Cash on receipt. What gives?

Really not sure how to explain this. It's more of a bright red than a maroon or blood red.

Sorry, there's a bug / limitation of our store software.

Awaiting payment = Successful online payment (or that COD will be collected). :thumbs up

If this simplifies, Polo red or i20 red? :)

Is international delivery available please? I live in the UK and this will be perfect for autumn. Unfortunately, no one traveling from India to UK in the near future.

Majumdarda 18th July 2017 07:02

Wow wow wow...

A good morning surprise. The post from October was woken from sleep for such an excellent news. Let me quickly get a system to go through the details and make my selection...

EDIT: And the order has been successfully placed. Waiting eagerly now.

:D

Definitely more like a Swift / Polo red. (i20 is a bit darker / more maroon).

Sorry but we haven't found a good way to do this. If you find a good forwarding service, we'd be happy to help if any additional stuff is required (eg. special packing/address instructions) in getting it to them...

When I ordered the V2 hoodies, I chose L but found that they were a little snug fit and hence ordered XL this time just a few minutes back. I am 5'11" and around 70 kilos. Are the sizes same as of last year or changed? If it is the same as last year I will stick to XL or if not then please let me know.
