The fabric is a 3-end French terry, heavy slub-back fabric in a herringbone weave. It’s woven on vintage looms in South Carolina, in a district that is famous for producing authentic true-vintage knits. Here is where the fabric shows its versatility: the face is a flat textured, 50/50 cotton-poly blend, so it takes the dye in a unique heathered pattern. The “back” slub side is 100 percent cotton and has a beautiful slubby texture, after a few washes the herringbone weave begins to emerge and gives the sweatshirt an interesting hand and a comfortable worn look. A few inches to the overall length have been added to avoid boxiness and finished it off with double Vs in the front and back collar.

The entire piece is sewn using flat-lock stitching so it’s fully reversible and with each side you get a completely different look and feel. Notice the smooth surface on the exterior side.

The antique black version when reversed is a very different look exposing a beautiful heathered gray fabric with a clean flat surface, and of course the super soft French Terrry fabric is on the interior adding even more comfort.

The fit is slim in the arms and shoulders, slightly tapered through the body. Overall a nice slim fit.
