Blue Cotton-Hemp Hoodie With Gray Liner and Stitching

Science and Fashion, Now Fused

Betabrand is proud to offer you the opportunity to own a piece of Darpa-class technology in hoodie form. For those unfamiliar with Darpa, it stands for Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — the government entity that created the Internet, stealth fighters, and robots galore.

What makes our state-of-the-art hoodie stand out from the common hooded coat? Lots of science: Thanks to an ingenious algorithm cooked up by a duo of Darpa grantees, our friends Jonathan Bachrach and Saul Griffith from Otherlab, we puzzled together sections of cotton-hemp fabric to form a unique, 12-part design. The result: optimal fit using minimal material.

How this singular fusion of science and fashion came to be:

Over the last few years, Jonathan and Saul developed software that converts 3D objects into

2D patterns — just the thing for some mysterious, top-secret government project. Or, you know, hoodies.

Darpa encouraged Jonathan and Saul to find nifty, non-military applications for their software, and we’re honored that they chose to test their technology on us.

Please note that Betabrand constructed these hoodies strictly for peaceful purposes. For now.
