Loop & Weft’s latest for F/W 2019 is an incredibly unique double face thermal fabric featuring a different knitting structure on face and inlay of the fabric. The face follows the motif of an old military thermal, with its sturdy and heavyweight hand and feel.
Knitted in the knitwear capital of Japan, Wakayama, the face features square shaped waffle known as wire mesh while the inlay is a ribbed knit. The ribbed knit inlay was developed specifically for its soft and comfortable touch against the skin, while doubling down on the warmth insulation.
Both the neck line as well as the cuffs use needle free ribbing and the shoulder line is dropped on purpose to yield a more ergonomic fit to the shoulder blades of the torso. The neckline is constructed using the binder neck method which eliminates the dreaded sagging of the collar over extended wear.
Cut to fit more like a t-shirt than your classic fitted thermal, the piece can comfortably double as either a base layer or worn stand alone.
Using a vintage Union Special machine to create a 4-needle flat seam construction that is not only labor-intensive, but requires experience and skill to produce the even seam construction seen throughout these latest offerings.
