This sweatshirt was born from the origins of American sportswear before the 1950s, when man-made materials became popular.
Like Lot.601 Tee Shirt, it is directly cut and has a flat shape. By reconstructing the shirt, we can understand the background of manufacturing, which has been forgotten in the modern age, such as the V-gusset detail at the neck on the front and back sides of the shirt.
The round-body fleece is made on a hang-knitting machine in Wakayama, Japan, using USA cotton, which gives the fabric a unique texture with a dry feel. The machine can knit only one meter per hour, which is very inefficient, but the slow process creates a unique texture with a good degree of unevenness, as if air is knitted in with the fabric. This season, we also produces faded bleached colors based on sweatshirts found in California that have lost their color due to deterioration over time.
