A proprietary development for S/S ’21 by L&W, this collaboration features a Heather Slub cotton jersey knit, a highly textured and irregular weave. The irregular weave minimizes contact upon the skin when worn, and allows for the fabric to maintain maximum breathability. Paying homage to a 1960s vintage American T-shirt, the neck and hem feature a binder milled ribbing to ensure durability and shape through repeated wear.
Applying a combination of rare knitting techniques to bring this piece to fruition, both the fabric weaving and garment construction of this tee occur in Wakayama, Japan. A Union Special 4-needle flat seamer machine commands all the seam construction, while the vintage-inspired cuff construction completes the detail-driven focus that all Loop & Weft garments have become renowned for. 
The process starts with a natural cotton heather base, with the tees then garment dyed by hand, one piece at a time. A combination of the irregular nature of the fabric and the heather nature of the base fabric, results in the penetration of indigo in a variegated fashion, celebrating a range of indigo-dyed hues. 

*Model is pictured wearing a size M. He weighs 59kg (130 pounds) and is 178cm (5’11”) tall.

**As this is a garment dyed piece, please note that this garment may stain other articles of clothing given the nature of the indigo dye. This bleeding or transfer of color onto other garments can happen when it comes into contact, either directly or during the wash process. We would recommend washing this garment with similar colors.
