When we launched our Heavyweight T-Shirt line our goal was to capture the spirit of knits from an earlier time. A time when basics were a bit more rugged. Sturdy, high quality construction. Heavyweight fabrics built to last but that require a bit of effort to wear-in. It seems you agreed as our Heavyweight T-Shirts have been our most popular knit style.
We've been at work building our next product - the Heavyweight Sweatshirt. Take the inspiration for our Heavyweight T-Shirt and apply it to the classic Sweatshirt. Do it at a great value AND get it in your hands faster - 3 weeks after campaigns close! We hope you like the result.
We sought fabric that would instantly take you back in time. Heavy cotton fleece is the answer. Extra burly and dense with a hand that stands out. It starts off with a touch of coarseness. You have to earn your comfort like raw denim, but over time it develops into the perfect mix of weight and suppleness. The finish is a luxuriously brushed backside for comfort. The instant you touch this sweatshirt you'll get it. We, and you, have experienced the quality this mill in Canada delivers. Our heavyweight indigo t-shirts use their jersey.
Real attention to detail. Flat locked seams throughout. Ribbed side panels. Hems, cuffs and collar a bit wider to instantly convey the vintage aesthetic we want to capture. The quality of sewing is apparent. This is precisely why we partnered with the mill that makes the fabric to make the garment. They know the material and they know how to use it best.
High quality veg tan leather patches. A large format patch goes inside the collar. A small square goes on the bottom hem. Each will age uniquely over time.
A bit more relaxed old school than our standard style. It's a good match for the vintage inspiration and for the heavier weight fabric.
