If you’re looking for a high-end hoodie for your print-on-demand store, you’ve come to the right place. In this Cotton Heritage M2580 review, we’ll do a deep dive into the hoodie’s features, qualities, customization options, and everything in between.

Cotton Heritage M2580 is one of our bestselling hoodies, and no wonder—it’s made of premium materials, it’s extra comfy, and great bang for your buck.

Let’s get into it and explore whether this unisex premium hoodie is the right fit for you.

Cotton Heritage M2580 overview

The Cotton Heritage M2580 hoodie is made of 3-end fleece sourced from Pakistan. It’s a poly-cotton blend made of ring-spun cotton, which is more durable than regular cotton. It also offers an ultra-soft feel and a comfy, regular fit.

The hoodie features an extra-large front pouch pocket and a large adjustable hood with matching flat drawstrings so you can stay warm without messing up your hairdo. The flat drawstrings also have silver grommets which give the piece a classy look.

This hoodie is suitable for custom branding and supports direct-to-garment printing as well as embroidery. You can even make a custom inside label thanks to its easily removable tear-away tag.

In-depth review

To fully explore why this is one of the best hoodies for printing, let’s cover each feature and characteristic in detail.

Style and fit

One of the reasons the Cotton Heritage M2580 hoodie is one of the most popular products from our catalog is that it’s unisex. This means your custom hoodies can reach a broader audience and cater to just about any body type, size, and style preference.

The fit is perfect for casual outfits and it provides ample freedom of movement. Below are some key characteristics to look out for.

  • True to size: The hoodie runs true to size, so if you normally wear a large, a large Cotton Heritage M2580 should fit you comfortably. Size up if you’re going for a baggy look.

  • Comfortable fit: This hoodie has a loose, comfy fit that makes it great for layering or wearing on its own. The ring-spun cotton makes the fabric extra durable and soft—a sign of high quality.

  • Superior printability: The hoodie has a 100% cotton face (surface lining), which means printing techniques that work best on cotton will render beautifully (like direct-to-garment printing).

  • Single needle edge stitch at collar: The single needle edge stitch forms a secure seam at the collar, ensuring that it can withstand normal wear and tear without unraveling. It also reflects attention to detail and is frequently associated with higher-end clothing.

  • Side seaming: With side seams, all parts of a garment are cut individually, then stitched together to form a more tailored fit.

  • Long-lasting waistband and cuffs: These details are sewn with the 2-needle cover stitching technique which offers enhanced durability and improved stretchability. It also helps the cuffs and waistband hold their form over time. Plus, the double stitching looks great.

Now let’s get into the hoodie’s fabric and how it affects its quality, look, and feel.

Fabric composition

The Cotton Heritage M2580 is 65% ring-spun cotton and 35% polyester—except for the Charcoal Heather which is 60% ring-spun cotton and 40% polyester, and the Carbon Grey which is 55% ring-spun cotton and 45% polyester.

Compared to normal cotton (called “carded open-end” or COE cotton), ring-spun cotton yarns are finer, smoother, and more tightly twisted. Thanks to this twisting process, the fabric has fewer protruding fibers which allows for better air circulation and moisture absorption. Ring-spun cotton is also softer, higher quality, and more durable.

Blending ring-spun cotton with polyester creates an ideal fabric for casual and active wear because of its comfort and practicality.

Poly-cotton blends also provide a number of benefits.

  • Durability: Combining polyester and cotton creates a fabric that is resistant to wear and tear. It can withstand multiple washes and is less prone to shrinkage and stretching. Just make sure you follow the care instructions to boost its lifespan.

  • Wrinkle resistance: Polyester fibers are wrinkle-resistant, which means poly-cotton blends require less ironing than pure cotton garments.

  • Moisture absorption and breathability: Cotton is breathable, while polyester is quick-drying. This allows the air to circulate while the wearer stays dry during intense activities or hot weather.

  • Cost-effective: Poly-cotton blends are often more affordable than pure cotton apparel, making them a popular choice for mass-production and print-on-demand businesses.

  • Color retention: This blend tends to retain color better after multiple washings and sun exposure. This means you’ll be able to enjoy your custom print’s vibrant colors for the duration.

The hoodie also has a 100% tightly knit 3-end cotton face, which provides a smooth surface for printing, making it ideal for the direct-to-garment (DTG) method.

Fabric weight

While this unisex premium hoodie is on the heavier side, it still provides enough breathability, making it ideal for all kinds of weather. The fabric is also super soft and offers plenty of insulation so that the wearer feels warm and cozy.

Thanks to its thickness, this hoodie is extremely durable and has a substantial feel. Its slightly heavier fabric weight ensures that logos and designs appear well-defined and vibrant on the garment. The density of the fabric also prevents custom prints from deteriorating or fading over time.

Colors

The premium unisex hoodie Cotton Heritage M2580 comes in twelve different colors. You can add all of them to your store.

It’s important to note that heather colors can render slight shade variances due to the different colored threads. This means your custom prints will have a vintage effect which can be desirable, depending on your artistic vision.

Customization methods

Here at Printful, we offer two customization techniques for the Cotton Heritage M2580 premium unisex hoodie. You can choose between direct-to-garment (DTG) printing or embroidery.

Direct-to-garment (DTG) is a digital printing method that uses an inkjet printhead to apply ink directly to the fabric. The result is a high-quality print with vibrant colors and high levels of detail.

If you choose DTG printing, you can add your custom designs on the front, back, and sleeves. You can also add an outside or inside label with your logo. 

For some hoodie design ideas, check out our article sharing 32 Hoodie Design Ideas to Get You Inspired.

Embroidered designs can go in the center or to the left, and on the wrists. Recently we’ve added the option to create large embroidered designs in the front or back. You can also add an inside label or outside label using DTG printing. But you can’t combine an outside label with a back print.

If you’re new to embroidery, check out our Step-by-Step Guide to Embroidered Designs. You’ll also want to consult our file guidelines both for embroidery and DTG print files:
