The latest Captain America movie (yes, there were others) was by far and away the best of not only the series, but of one of the best of the comic book genre.  Sure, things got a bit stale towards the end of the flick, but the beginning, which is when the protagonist goes from geek to massively strong freak, was a fun and entertaining watch.

To be totally candid, though, we weren’t all that impressed with Captain America’s digs…as in costume.  In our opinion it looked kind of cheap if not cheesy.  But on the upside, that’s made it easier to produce a hoodie that is pretty damn close to the silver screen version.  All the details in this iteration (there were others) have been sewn on and embroided adding a level of authenticity that mimics the on screen costume.  For posterity’s sake, this full zip sweatshirt is made from 60% cotton and 40% polyester, so it should be very soft to the touch.  Just make sure you turn it inside out when you wash it, otherwise the sewn on details might get ripped or torn.

Unfortunately, it’s currently out of stock at ThinkGeek.
