Paying homage to an iconic garment that has solidified its place in athletic & urban street culture, the Champion Reverse weave sweatshirt has been revered in Japan for decades as the pinnacle of Americana, treated similar to the Levi’s 1947 501xx in terms of cultural relevance. Originally developed by Champion back in 1938, athletic coaches were looking for ways to commercially launder large quantities of sports garments without having to deal with the stress of shrinkage & degeneration over time. Champion developed this Reverse Weave in response, a vertically knit fabric that when sewn into a garment would minimize shrinkage and maximize durability. This specific kind of woven composition is referred to in Japanese as 鬼裏毛 (Oniurake, or devil’s weave), because of the fatter yarn used to construct the weave.
