Short sleeve sweats are some of the most underrated garments for that spring/summer sweet spot. Perfect for when you want to layer and a t-shirt just isn’t enough but you aren’t looking for a full sweatshirt, the short sleeve is at your command. And frequent heritage-wear tastemaker The Real McCoy’s strengthens its reputation with an example that stays true to the originals.
Created on hanging knitting machines just like the old days, these 9 oz. cotton loopwheeled sweatshirts are as low tension as possible, resulting in a sweat you can’t wait to wear and wear in.
Taking it back to the 60s when sportswear and ivy style were ubiquitous, this made-in-Japan sweatshirt featured raglan sleeves, ribbed cuffs, a crew neck collar, and a thick waistband. But like other successful Real McCoy spinoffs, this sweat gets a hit militaria by way of USN chenille embroidery which adds equal parts navyism and americana. You really can’t go wrong.
