A new addition to our luxurious loopback collection, this casual hoody is designed to have an easy-to-throw-on appeal. Resulting from a combination of traditional techniques, modern design and fabric innovation, it has a neat, classic fit and a front pocket for added practicality. Loopback’ is the technical term given to the fabric traditionally used to make sweatshirts. It’s a literal description of the construction of the fabric that features loops on its reverse, and is also a reference to the original machine that was used to knit the fabric: the loopwheel. Having originally been developed for sports garments, the loops on the back of the fabric were designed to absorb sweat from your body, passing it into the garment to keep you cool. Conversely, our loopback fabric is designed to trap warm air inside, providing an insulating layer for day-to-day wear. We developed our loopback fabric based on an archive Sunspel garment. It is unique in that it uses an extra fine yarn that is tightly knitted. The resulting fabric is softer lighter, more resistant to pilling, and ultimately more luxurious than your average sweatshirt fabric. These distinctive qualities allows for garments that are supremely comfortable, but with a refined fit. Our hoody is testament to this: yes it looks great paired with out matching track pant for lounging at home, but it works just as well worn with our new Selvedge jeans for effortless day-to-day style.
