Fabric : Made of a 100% cotton unlined, single-ply, pre-washed 13-ounce mediumweight loop-wheeled sweatshirt fabric with a soft brushed interior backing. It has a 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.
Collar : Ribbed crew neck with bound neckband (cover stitch neckband with double stitching). It used for the neck to prevent overstretching. Double layer V-gusset stitching (V-stitch, V-insert, sweat catch) on the front neck for the fashionable vintage feel and look.
Pattern Type : Printing.
Closure : Pull on closure. Pull-over.
Sleeve Style : Set-in sleeves.
Sleeve Length : Long sleeves.
Other details : The two-ply knit ribbed sleeve ends and waistband are comfortable and flexible. Vintage style longer ribbed cuff and waistband to to provide fit in the right places. 4-needle flat-locked seams for extra durability and comfort. 4-needle flat-lock seam construction keeps the seam strong and lie flat against the body for comfort. A triangle of rib fabric is inserted underneath the front crew neck collar. The technical name is the V-gusset stitching or V-Stitch or V-Insert. Its use was originally as a means of collecting sweat around the chest and neckline after exercise. In addition to its practical use, the V-inserted was added as a way of controlling the stretch of the neckline when pulling the garment on. This piece made more elastic the neckline and recovering the form again. Lock stitch throughout.
