Fabric : Made of 100% cotton raw/unwashed heavyweigt loopwheel knitting sweatshirt fabric with a soft brushed interior backing. This sweatshirt fabric knitted on loop-wheel looms has a dry feel, slubby and rugged texture for fashionable vintage feel and look. This sweatshirt deliver the perfect combination of durability and natural softness for comfort. This sweatshirt comes raw/unwashed. After washing, the knitting of the cotton fibers in sweatshirt tightens so it will make the fabric denser and therefore more heavyweight. As a result, the sweatshirt will slightly shrink vertically after wash. Horizontal shrinkage is minimal.
Body : Tubular construction (No side seam construction). Made on loop-wheeling machine which knit the fabric in a seamless continuous tube. 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. Loop wheeling 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 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 and back neck for the fashionable vintage feel and look.
Patterns : Graphic printing. Faded print for the fashionable vintage feel and look.
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 and back 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.
