Repro kingpin Warehouse & Co. is highlighting a lesser-known sweatshirt style with its Separate Pocket Hoodie in Navy and Heather. Made popular in the 1930s, this style of lockstitch hooded sweatshirt was once a common piece of athletic wear and is now highly collectible amongst vintage clothing collectors. Go figure! And even if you had the money to cash out on one, they simply don’t turn up. Trust me.
So anyways, Warehouse’s exacting rendition gives you the chance to look the part without the stress of procuring an original. It’s knitted with a loopwheel machine just like the originals would have been, resulting in no side seams and no rib seams which means smooth wearin’. The hood is made from a single layer of fabric with overlocked edges resulting in a less structured hood that will sit nice and shallow.
Made in Jaan from 100% cotton, this time machine sweatshirt features split pockets and fabric dyed to the specifications of the period.
Available for $150 from Hinoya
