Only Murders In The Building Makes Promo Hoodie A Potential Clue
Hoodies are hot and hit multiple trends, including comfort, athleisure, hip-hop fashion and Y2K nostalgia. With cozy coverage for your head and warm pockets to stow your hands or stash your stuff, what’s not to like?
In fact, a hoodie is a featured plot point in Season 2 of Hulu’s Emmy-nominated show, Only Murders In The Building.
Neighbors and murder mystery podcasters Mabel (Selena Gomez), Oliver (Martin Short) and Charles (Steve Martin) have been unraveling mysteries since season one. Soon, die-hard fans were waiting outside their iconic building, The Arconia, selling merch and cheering them on.
That merch eventually makes the trio prime murder suspects when the building’s board manager, Bunny Folger, is found murdered—in the pink tie-dye promo hoodie she was just given.

Unlike Bunny’s cold-blooded murder, the right hoodie can feel like a warm hug—and this American classic is nearing a century in fashion. (Champion created the first hooded sweatshirt in the 1930s!)
These days, the humble hoodie has made its way into luxury fashion as well. As Town & Country’s MaryKate Boylan and Sarah Adams put it, “Don’t be afraid to get comfortable!”
Hoodies are definitely hot—and hard to keep in stock, says Melissa Pope, president of Georgia-based distributor Branded Expressions. Order now for winter and spring, she advises.
“Hoodies are available right now, but I’m not expecting them to be for long,” Pope says. “Inventory has been a huge issue for the last year and a half, and hoodies are very popular. I’m telling everybody to order sooner than later.”
To choose the right hoodie, consider the client, the wearer and the season, she adds—heavier weights for winter, lighter for spring.
Here are some fresh hoodie trends your clients will be dying to wear this fall and winter:
You can’t go wrong with the original.
