This new UES indigo zip hoodie is simply perfect. The fit in the body is perfect. The arms are just about excellent. Even though the fabric is thick, it's surprisingly light, but it will keep you warm when the temperature falls; it does a great job blocking the wind. The hood is a nice size and shape and feels sturdy. Overall it's super comfortable. The fabric is super soft, so if you're looking to be comfy upright and love indigo fading, there is no better option than this.
This indigo thick sweat fabric is outstanding. If you look at the back of the fabric, you can see that it is coloured. This is because the back thread is not a regular thread but a heather thread. The back thread does not appear on the front, but it actually affects the colour of the front to a considerable extent. The high-cost heather thread is used for the back thread to give a deep colour. It uses the same fabric as the sweatpants, so you can wear it in your setup.
Indigo might just be the most universally flattering colour on the planet. And for more than a few years now, indigo-dyed clothing has been a favourite among everyone. If you're a fan of Japanese workwear, you know that this little plant helped launch the denim industry—which, it goes without saying, is no small feat. But by now, the range of deep blue tones achieved with indigo have found their way into just about every corner of the modern man's closets—including sweat pieces.
UES is a small Japanese label founded by Chuji Matsumoto in 1994. UES comes from the English word "Waste", which means that Matsumoto-San wants you to make full use of each garment for as long as possible before discarding it. It is a small judgement of the concept of disposable wear that is so commonplace today in the world of fashion and from which Matsumoto-San disassociates himself completely.
