It’s amazing how old machines hold up. All kinds of old cars and planes are still up and running, but modern dishwashers break down about every 15 minutes, which gives you enough time to just do the dishes yourself. And, as any lover of repro clothing knows, things made on old sewing machines tend to hold up quite well while bringing a degree of authenticity and detail that modern machines just can’t match.
The McHill Vintage Flatseamer Sweatshirt from Toys Mccoy is just a garment that gets a boost from a vintage sewing machine. The particular machine deployed on this sweatshirt is a four-needle flat-seam sewing machine that “overlays the edges and allows for less seam allowance.” So, in other words, this vintage machine allows for a uniquely vintage design.
The made-in-Japan sweatshirt comes in Oat and has a circular, tube knit body construction, as well as ribbed V-inserts at the collar, making it the perfect choice for any historical seam-sticklers in your life.
Available for $153 from Blue in Green.
