Fall brings the heat, around here, if you’ve been following the OD story you know that already. One fabric blows our minds every time it comes around from Loop & Weft. The Tompkins Knit fabric is quite possibly one of the softest sweat fabrics that we have ever stocked, and it is thanks to the purveyors of "Best Knitwear in Japan", that production of these garments is still kicking. It is well known that Loopwheel is the standard for premium quality when it comes to sweatshirt material, with only two factories left in Wakayama still able to produce the esteemed fabric. Tompkins is like the new (actually, really damn old) standard, with a single factory in Wakayama left that only allows 1-2 machines to keep running the production for Tompkins fabric. The reason? Simple economics - Loopwheel is more profitable, and better known amongst clients, hence easier to sell as a fabric and garment.
