Material : Made from 100% cotton loop-wheeled sweatshirt fabric with a soft brushed backing. Mediumweight with extra soft handle.
Fabric Type : Medium-weight fleece cotton fabricated on original vintage loop-wheel looms. It combines durability and the natural softness for comfort. The sweatshirt is washed once for the fashionable vintage feel and look, and to ensure consistent sizing, thus this is the final size fitting and it is ready-to-wear. And the fabric will also develop a comfortable feeling and continue to get softer and cozier through repeated wear.
Body : Tubular construction (No side seam construction). Made on vintage looms which weave the fabric in a seamless continuous tube known as loop-wheeling. The fabric is produced with minimal tension during weaving process and lack of seams means the garment will keep its shape through wear and washing. It combines durability and the natural softness for comfort. 4-Needle looms are special machines that are able to weave a perfect tube, but they can only weave one set diameter (size) per loom, so a loom for each size is required. This is why one hardly ever sees perfect tube construction in modern day garments. It ensures true shape is maintained not only during its construction but during its life of wear.
Collar : 1/4 zip cadet collar.
Style : Mens Casual Fashion / Traditional vintage-style sweatshirts / Athletic military style.
Pattern Type : Graphic printing on left side chest.
Sleeve Style : Set-in sleeves.
Sleeve Length : Long sleeves.
Other details : The two-ply longer knit ribbed sleeve ends and waistband are comfortable and flexible. Flat-lock seam construction keeps the seam strong and lie flat against the body for comfort. TUBE-Body construction with no side seams. This sweatshirt is modeled after a vintage military sample. Like the original, this one has flatlock seams (as the name suggests, the panels of fabric are stitched together in a way that makes the seams lie flat).
