ANGLERO New York is a team based in Brooklyn, NY. Our goal is to make the best hoodies in the market, so we created the Dream Hoodie and release an updated version each year, aiming to improve and perfect our signature hoodie. The original Dream Hoodie was released in 2014. Made with premium Peruvian cotton, it featured a detachable eye mask for travel, an interior Smart phone pocket and a headphone eyelet. The Dream Hoodie 3.0 version is set to launch July 2017 with three additional features. Coming soon !
The Dream Hoodie 2.0 version was released in 2016 with the new feature of a Lover's pocket for your significant other. During the research period we asked all original customers from the Dream Hoodie 1.0 what they liked about it and what would they improve. Our customers asked for deeper front pockets that way keys or personal stuff didn't fall out, we upgraded to Japanese zippers and pre washed our Peruvian cotton to avoid shrinkage.
For us, the true dream of life is about having the opportunity to make a difference in the world with the work we do. To make products that are loved by our customers while growing responsibly. We believe being a Social Enterprise is an extremely important element behind all dreams achieved every second of the day. ANGLERO New York is proud to announce that we are giving 20% of our profits to sustain and finance the education of small orphanages in Peru and Myanmar, with the intention to identify and further help more around the world.
The hoodie is the most democratic garment. Seen on all types of people from athletes, mothers, celebrities, criminals, teens, world leaders, CEO's, etc. The hoodie provides a personal space, a hiding space, a place of comfort. It's my armor.

The style of the hoodie can be traced back to biblical times, where it was donned by figures like the Virgin Mary and later, the monks of medieval Europe to provide instant anonymity and shelter from the elements. In the 1930's, Champion Athletic Apparel started outfitting American football players who waited in the sidelines. In the 1970's Rocky cemented a spot in movie history while wearing a grey hoodie. In the 1980's, graffiti artists and rappers popularized the hoodies through the new phenomenon of music videos. In the 1990's, Unabomber drawings were plastered through all possible media. Today, the Hoodie can be found across our society from symbolic injustice for Treyvon Martin to a prerequisite wardrobe for the Tech Industry popularized by Face Book founder, Mark Zuckerberg. With this research, I'm personally able to understand and be further intrigued by the symbolic aspect of the hoodie garment.
