The Loop & Weft Double Face Vintage Pinstripe Rib Knit Collection

Back with the "Best Knitwear" coming out of Japan, Loop & Weft once again deliver a standout set of cotton jersey pieces for 2023 that feature construction elements and proprietary fabrics that are simply unmatched. The fabric features a 100% Cotton pinstripe knit, meticulously reconstructed from vintage samples, using a rare vintage knitting machine based in Wakayama. These vintage repros are derived from a thorough analysis of finely ribbed stripe knits from a bygone era.

Unlike ordinary rib knits, the special double-faced fabric boasts distinct outer and inner layers, creating a striking appearance with delicate two-tone vertical lines. It adheres gracefully to the body's contours, while also boasting a thickness similar to thermal fabrics.

The design draws inspiration from European 1980s crewneck thermals. They are meticulously sewn using a vintage 4-needle Union Special 36200 sewing machine, ensuring durable construction, comfort and ease of wear. In addition to the classic and atmospheric ribbed collar and cuffs, distinguished by different fabric colors, the neckline is flattened using three needles to minimize seam allowance.

Available as a Henley, Mock Neck and Crewneck Tee, the new tops will drop in three colors - Black, Gray and Two-Tone Gray.

The Loop & Weft Double Face Vintage Pinstripe Rib Knit Tees drop on 9/6 @ Midnight (JST)
