Disclaimer: I have no idea what sorrel is. I even Googled it this time—shocking, I know—and found some pictures of bright green perennial garden herbs and a Wikipedia entry I won’t pretend to understand. That’s mostly besides the point*, however, because Levi’s Vintage Clothing just dropped their pretty-much-perfect 1950s Sportswear Hoodie in a real good orange-goldenrod colorway.
(I say mostly because the colorway on this sweatshirt is “Sorrel.” It might seem like a stretch, but also know that I’ve encountered some far more perplexing choices as a menswear copywriter. Acid Rain was one. Electric was another. Infinity. Astro. Lotion. Leaf, which was grey and yellow. None of these are colors, by the way, and that stopped exactly no one from pretending they were. Anyways, I guess I’m good with “Sorrel” being a color between orange and yellow, but I’m also numb.)
For those that are familiar with the seasonal standard, it’s that. For those that aren’t, know that it’s made in Portugal with an impossibly soft, 100% cotton loopback jersey fabric and that it features two patch pockets at the front—not a pouch—extended ribbing at the cuffs and hem, dropped shoulders and a slightly oversized hood.
Is a heatwave the right time to contemplate a hoodie? Probably not, but I assume the heat will end and this will make more sense.
Available for $195 at Need Supply.
