In collaboration with our fabric supplier we have studied and created our exclusive Melange Sweatshirt. The inspiration for the construction of the fabric comes from the sweatshirts of the early 1900s, sweatshirts made with special Japanese looms that created a soft fabric, from the diagonal weave, with the loop (the twisted thread visible from the reverse) soft and open. The knitting process requires long production times, making this type of fabric rare and unique.
The melange grey color is given by the weaving of threads of different colors, from raw cotton to various shades of grey, creating the so-called “flames”, that is the evident irregularities that make the fabric alive and each single garment unique; thanks to the loose weave, the sweatshirt is extremely comfortable.
The influence of the vintage college world is also found in the details: our melange crewneck sweatshirt is slightly high-necked with the original triangle insert that was inserted to maintain the shape of the neck over time, the ribs on the cuffs high to turn up, the fit squared and comfortable recalls the American sweatshirts of the 50s.
