orSlow - Loopwheel Hooded Sweatshirt - Exclusive No-Print Burgundy
Pleased is an understatement when it comes to the fact that we're working with orSlow. They've been on our brand "bucket list" for a while, so when we had a chance to see the line live in New York a few years back...we knew it was only a matter of time. The brand is everything we love - vintage-inspired designs with a modern branding approach and quality at the forefront of their ethos. It's all in the name, as they're the antidote to modern fast fashion...they do things slowly!
You say "loopwheel" and we're there. These are everything expected and more. They're plush on the outside and super soft on the inside with tons of texture. And we mean tons of texture this time. There's a great little fleck in the fabric, unlike anything we've seen in a sweatshirt. The strings are nice and hardy and the ribbing is that orSlow quality we all expect. The character in this piece is in its simplicity. We're all about building better basics, and that's exactly what orSlow has done with the slow, loopwheel process. This red was part of a printed series, but you know how much we love our no-prints. We're the only shop on the planet that has this version of it. This super vintage cut sweatshirt is one of our favorite things in the store at this moment, and probably will be long after it's gone.

Fit Notes: We bought this round a little conservatively as we weren't sure about sizing. Our guess was that everything would fit small, but a lot of the fits are vintage-inspired so they run roomier. Ryan had no problem wearing the (2), and could probably wear a (1). His standard Japanese Size is medium. We have heard word that these shrink though, so you should be careful on the first wash. If you're worried at all, size up one and shrink down in the wash. Shop owner Tommy also wears a size (2). He is 5'10," 162lbs with a 40" chest and normal Japanese size large.
