A tompkin fleece hooded sweatshirt using the phantom old-fashioned knitting machine "Tompkin", which hardly exists in Japan. The tompkin machine is a vintage circular knitting machine with low production efficiency that was first developed around 1846, and it is extremely rare compared to the "hanging knitting machine", which is operating only a few in Japan. It is a knitting machine. Unlike a circular knitting machine that normally knits from top to bottom at high speed, the fabric knitted by a unique knitting method that slowly knits from bottom to top is a thick and soft fabric that contains plenty of air. It has a structure, and the loop part of the lining is finished with a special sheep brushing process (vintage brushing similar to wool) to increase the thickness and heat retention, and to give a plump texture rich in vintage feeling. I am building it. The design is based on the 1950s hooded sweatshirt. Reconstructed time-consuming vintage details such as a hood opening wrapped with a separate cloth binder, a trapezoidal kangaroo pocket, and two-needle sewing. The silhouette has a classical hoodie as a motif, but by adjusting the pattern of details in a well-balanced manner, it is tailored to a modern regular fit, and even when layered with outerwear such as jackets and coats, ribs are used. It is a pull hoodie with an atmosphere where the hood is the point. We hope that you will enjoy the texture of rare fabrics that cannot be mass-produced and the time-consuming ingenuity of details.
