The West is Dead "3-End French Terry" Indigo Dyed Collection


The West is Dead is coming at us again with their 3-End French Terry sweaters, but this time they've done something to them that really brings them home for Blue Owl. The new season is made with yarn dyed indigo. The pieces keep their traditional details: metal zipper, leather pull stops, and vintage flat lock sewing. The new sweater is available in both hoodie and crew neck for the dark indigo, with a washed version of the crew neck as well. The fabric will fade beautifully, like a pair of high end denim.

The fabric is a 3-end French terry fabric in a herringbone weave, and unlike the previous generations is 100% cotton. It’s woven on vintage looms in South Carolina, in a district that is famous for producing authentic true-vintage knits. 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.
