100% COTTON ORIGINAL TOMPKINS KNIT FABRIC 1950s STYLE CREWNECK SWEATSHIRT MOTIF 2 NEEDLE SEAM CONSTRUCTION BINDER NECK CONSTRUCTION ONE WASHED UNISEX REGULAR FIT MADE IN JAPAN
A tompkin fleece sweatshirt made using a 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 motif of the design is a classic sweatshirt that is sewn with two needles, which requires time and effort. The neck is a crew neck with a thick original milling cutter sewn up with a two-needle binder neck sewing to suppress deflection after wearing and have an excellent fit. The silhouette has a well-balanced space in the width of the body, armholes, sleeve width, etc., and is tailored to a regular fit that allows you to fully experience the warm and fluffy comfort of the tompkin fleece. We hope that you will enjoy the texture of rare fabrics that cannot be mass-produced and the time-consuming details.
