When Dubble Works says its t-shirts are ultra-heavy, you best believe they’re ultra heavy. Some might even say Dubble as heavy as your standard t-shirt (literally). Sorry, I’ll show myself out.
Born and bred in Osaka, Dubble Works – part of the SANKEI MERIYASU dynasty; a family of brands that includes heavy-hitters such as Warehouse & Co., and Heller’s Cafe – is a brand known for producing small-batch, vintage-inspired clothing with exceptional attention to detail and craftsmanship. I think it’s safe to say that its Ultra-Heavy Loopwheel t-shirts are certainly no exception to that.
Constructed from a thick 9 oz. cotton, Dubble Works’ Ultra-Heavy tees are knitted in Japan on the brand’s very own reconstructed ‘Stand Wheeler’ loopwheel machine; a machine that only has the capacity to produce fabric for approximately 10 to 15 t-shirts a day. If that’s not a commitment to the craft, then I don’t know what is.
To put in perspective how heavy these tees are, a quick Google search will tell you that an average t-shirt weighs between 3 and 6 oz. The t-shirts feature a double-stitched, heavy ribbed collar, an unusual invisible sleeve and bottom hem for a minimalistic look, and a lightly brushed interior for added comfort.
