oversized raw-edge sweatshirt - navy blue
Kurt Cobain wore oversized sweatshirts in the eighties, Haider Ackermann made them fashion this decade. Kanye West channeled them in Yeezy; Fear of God, Greg Lauren and countless others have made their interpretations. Oversized sweatshirts are now definitely a classic, so we developed our own.
This is a navy overdye on a greige base. Note: as these are small-batch overdyed, special care should be taken when first washing and wearing to avoid colour transfer.

HOW IT WAS MADE
Our Oversized Raw-Edge Sweatshirt was made by a small factory in Barcelos, Portugal, that specialises in luxury jersey items, and is used by some of the most prominent luxury brands. You can see pictures of this plant, which manufactured both the Muscle T-Shirt and the Oversized Raw-Edge Sweatshirt here.
The fabric was also sourced in Portugal. It is a heavy, 410 gm/sqm, diagonal knit, loopback American fleece. It is carbon brushed on the face for softness and dust repellent properties. It is not brushed on the inside; the warmth is provided by the weight and density of the fabric, not by brushing in pockets of air.
The sweatshirts were made in unbleached fabric, that was garment dyed to our exact specifications in a small dyehouse in the same industrial complex. You can see pictures of the vats and the dyehouse here. The fixative is good old sodium chloride, aka salt.
SHAPE + DETAILING
This is an oversized sweatshirt, made more flattering by tailoring the rear shoulders with inside-out darting. The rear seam adds structure - sewn on the exterior, and left raw (for a grunge look, rough the threads up with your fingernail). The hem has also been left raw, flat stitched to prevent fraying, and rolls slightly.
