In part 1 we took you through our essential must have HOODIES. In this week’s write up we’ll be getting stuck into the details of our classic sweaters.
We’re operating in an industry full of incredible detail, although there’s nothing wrong with opting for a more minimal style on top. The BS-02 BDD EMBROIDERY SWEAT is a wardrobe staple that looks as good today as it would have done 70 years ago. With a weight of 330 gsm and a 100% cotton construction, the raglan style oozes simplicity and comfort. Our BS-02 has flattering capabilities with a sturdy box-like fit. The inserts create more room below the armpit, leaving a good amount of room for air circulation. The BS-02 is our interpretation of a vintage icon, we’ve carried over this particular style as it’s simply timeless. Our classic grey sweat, black or blue jeans, and some fresh white sneakers should definitely turn some heads. It’s casual, yet sophisticated.
The BS-05 REVERSE SWEAT is inspired by an old skool sportswear silhouette. Its name comes from the literal construction of the garment. As you probably know, at BENZAK we’re obsessed with both style and functionality. The 100% cotton fabric used, has been turned 90 degrees so the sweater gets most of its stretch length ways. This serves as a functional feature and allows the garment to be swiftly put on and taken off with ease. Lennaert and his keen eye for detail decided to incorporate side seam inserts to compensate the loss of stretch in the width. Keeping with the vintage style, it was crucial to the design of the sweat to add contrast oatmeal ribbing on either side. Well, what would a retro looking garment be without bold traditional features. On both the front and back of the sweat we’ve added ‘V’ inserts. This adds an extra touch of functionality to the sweat around the neckline, once again assisting with the garment’s flexibility. Not to mention this key component pays homage to the original vintage style. To top it off, we’ve embroidered our signature bull logo at the bottom left of the garment.
