Fabric : 100% cotton medium weight sweatshirt fabric with a soft brushed interior backing. It has a slightly slubby and rugged texture on the face of the fabric. It combines durability and the natural softness for comfort. This sweatshirt is washed once for a fashionable vintage feel and look. Pre washed, minimal shrinkage.
Body : Tubular construction (No side seam construction). Made on vintage looms which knit the fabric in a seamless continuous tube known as loop-wheeling. The fabric is produced with minimal tension during knitting 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. Vintage looms are special machines that are able to knit a perfect tube, but they can only knit 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.
Closure : Pull on closure. Pull-over.
Storage : This hoodie has a kangaroo pocket (handwarmer pocket), with diagonal openings for easy insertion of hands. The pocket sits on the lower front section of the hoodie. The pocket is open on either side. *Note this pocket has wide openings on either side, through which belongings may fall out of.
Hood : A hood is made from two layers of fabric for durability. The hood has eyelets(eyelet holes), but drawstring is not included, allowing for maximum movement. This isn't an error - this is how a hoodie should be.
