This low wedge pocket crew neck tee features a special cut-off detail that gives it more of a worn-in vibe. The dual-layer fabric is made from a thicker-than-usual SZ (nº40) grafted yarn (yarn with a double twist in both directions to suppress skewing) and is knitted to a good thickness and fluffiness, resulting in a soft and silky knit.
The fabric has a rich, expressive texture and a stress-free feel.
The original grafting provides an expressive texture and a stress-free wearing experience and avoids any possible skewing after washing.
The hem and sleeves are cut off with narrow 2-needle stitching. The rest is constructed using vintage Union Special machines with four-needle flat seam stitching. Finally, the collar and pocket openings are cut off and backed with a special sewn, creating one of the most stunning rounded edge pocket tees we have ever seen.
The seam allowance is flattened to enhance comfort and reconstruct the unique style of the vintage dual-layered garments. In addition, the shoulder seam is not visible from the front, creating a three-dimensional shoulder appearance.
The cut has a good amount of room in the body width and armholes, creating stress-free wearing comfort and improving breathability.
For the absolute best of the best, look no further than Japan's Loop & Weft, who have been crafting top-tier tees and knitwear with an artisan's eye for more than a decade. Using rare vintage machines, their pieces undergo a tediously slow knitting process that results in incredibly dense and suspiciously soft fabrics with unique uneven textures derived from the combination of natural and recycled fibres. In their efforts towards eco-conscious production, they use natural dyes with low environmental impact, resulting in coveted, one–of–a–kind pieces with a trademark organic unevenness in colour.
