This sweatshirt is made using an original brushed-back fleece fabric inspired by rare pin-striped sweatshirts from the 1960s, and is woven entirely in Wakayama, Japan. Unlike typical striped fleece fabrics, this material uses a special "SZ yarn" not only for the surface thread but also in the inner yarns. This luxurious touch prevents excessive twisting of the stripe pattern and showcases the fine stripe pitch beautifully. The fabric is densely knitted and features a brushed-back fleece, providing a smooth and plush texture while enhancing fabric stability and insulation.
The 4-needle seam stitching is executed with a special vintage machine, showcasing exceptional skill and attention to detail. The front and back body are cut and overlaid with a double-layer rib fabric stitched using a 4-needle machine, resulting in the double V-gusset feature. The sweatshirt also features a durable 2-needle binder neck, thick ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem.
The sweatshirt boasts a regular fit with the right amount of room and balance to allow for layering. With each wear, the fabric's character will deepen, allowing the details and color to shine through.
