100% COTTON ORIGINAL TOMPKINS KNIT FABRIC 1950s STYLE HOODED SWEATSHIRT MOTIF HOOD OPENING WITH RIBBED BINDING CLASSIC KANGAROO POCKET 2 NEEDLE SEAM CONSTRUCTION ONE WASHED UNISEX REGULAR FIT MADE IN JAPAN
A tompkin fleece hooded sweatshirt made using the phantom old-fashioned knitting machine "Tompkin" that hardly exists in Japan. The tompkin machine is a vintage circular knitting machine with low production efficiency that was first developed around 1846, and there are only one to several machines in operation in Japan, which is much smaller than the "hanging knitting machine". It is a rare knitting machine. Unlike a circular knitting machine that normally knits from top to bottom at high speed, the fabric knitted by a unique knitting method that slowly knits from bottom to top has a thick and soft fabric structure that contains plenty of air. Furthermore, the loop part of the lining is finished with a special sheep brushed process to increase the thickness and heat retention, creating a plump texture with a vintage feel. The design is based on the 50s hooded sweatshirt. Reconstructing time-consuming vintage details such as a hood opening wrapped in a separate binder, a trapezoidal kangaroo pocket, and two-needle sewing. The silhouette has a classical hoodie as a motif, but by adjusting the pattern of details in a well-balanced manner, it is tailored to a modern regular fit, and even when layered with outerwear such as jackets and coats, ribs are used. It is a pull hoodie with an atmosphere where the hood is the point. We hope that you will enjoy the texture of the extremely rare fabrics that cannot be mass-produced, and the time-consuming ingenuity of the details.
