I didn’t see the point in thermals until my mid-20s when my body decided to age by 50 years all of a sudden. I used to tear it round on a pushbike or skateboard wearing chinos and a t-shirt in the depths of winter, now I find myself looking at all manner of thermal garb in the supermarket and even wear a beanie in my apartment when it’s super frigid.
I’m yet to justify buying one of these crazy expensive Japanese-made thermals, but Studio D’Artisan is doing its best to force my hand with its Heavy Thermal Long Sleeve. Waffle-knit in Japan from 100% cotton, its made up in a gorgeous khaki so you can pretend that going from your desk to your refrigerator is a military operation. It’s also built with flatseam construction so there won’t be any uncomfortable seams to cause you discomfort, just like my $10 thermal is doing as I write this.
Available from Self Edge for $195
