As part of our AW21 collection, we have just released a new program of heavy sweats. Anyone who’s familiar with our past hoodie styles, will recognize the 500 gsm loopback French terry fabrication. This custom-knitted fabric has been part of our collection for quite some seasons in various styles, but we are expanding the offering, besides black and grey melee, with a new colour as well: oatmeal melee.
When first developed a few years back, our aim was to create a sweat fabric that could serve as a wardrobe staple season after season. We have been able to put it to the test with the use of our previous sweater offering; we can now safely claim its quality is up to our high standards for the long-lasting garments we desire to create.
With 500 gsm (gram per square meter) the sweat fabric is a heavy one, exactly what you need for the purpose of longevity. This is combined with the tightly knitted rib, that fits securely around your wrists and waist.
The new sweat program consists of the three above mentioned colours, used for two brand-new styles, a crew neck sweatshirt, and a zip-up hoodie, which we will explore down below.
BS-09 CREW NECK
The BS-09 CREW NECK is inspired by a classic sweatshirt silhouette; however, we have modified it slightly for a modern-day contemporary fit. The sleeves feature a raglan construction which allows better movement. Both front and back neck are installed with a gusset; this functional design feature pays homage to vintage sportswear and makes it easier to pull the sweater over one’s head. The seams have been overlocked for a clean finish, while providing an increase in durability at the same time.
BS-10 ZIP-UP HOODIE
The BS-10 ZIP-UP HOODIE can be considered the evolution of our former sweat program, as it takes elements of both BS-03 and BS-04, combining them to create the perfect zip-up hoodie. The design of the two front patch pockets is a nod to vintage sportswear. The sleeves feature a raglan construction which allows better movement, and the hoodie is double layered for extra comfort and durability. We’ve used a two-way zipper to boast our functional design aesthetics and is supplied by Talon Zipper. Lastly, we added a cotton drawstring to adjust the hoodie to your personal preference, but also simply complements the total design.
