We're huge fans of this next-level slubby t-shirt, which reveals a little more texture with every wash. The fabric is knitted using a unique spinning technique that creates a fine-grained and randomly uneven surface.
This unevenness, emphasized by the uneven yarns, gives the garment a good texture and reduces the surface contact with the skin, making it more breathable during the warmest days.
This short-sleeve masterpiece features a crew neck, raglan S-shaped freedom sleeves, ribbed binder cuffs, and a narrow ribbed hem. It's constructed with four-needle flat seam stitching using vintage Union Special machines. The ribbed tapping around the collar prevents the neck from sagging and increases durability. Those kinds of details require a lot of time and skill to achieve.
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.
