Jackman - GG Sweat Pullover Parka - 119 Dirty Dirty Base
Jackman continues to impress us with every delivery. This year, they've modified this garment to have a singular kangaroo pocket and overall better fit. This piece is as good of a sweatshirt as we've ever seen (and we don't say that lightly). The GG stands for grainy because this fabric has such character. They use two different yarn thicknesses in the knitting process in their factory in Fukui. The decorative yarn creates a whole heck of a lot of texture that you'll feel from the get-go. And, with all the amazing products we've carried over the years...we wouldn't be surprised if you're the most impressed with these.
A soft and thick sweat pullover parka made with thick domestic yarn. The solid color emphasizes the feeling of thickness, and the heathered color combines several colors of twisted yarn to create a well-balanced heathered feel. The body width and shoulder width are designed to be loose, and the sloping shoulders eliminate the feeling of tightness when the sleeves are lowered, giving you room from the upper arms to the cuffs. The kangaroo pocket has a gusset and a three-dimensional effect, and the hood has been improved so that it does not fall down. In addition, considering comfort when worn, the main parts are sewn with flat seamers to reduce roughness on the skin.

Fit Notes: Most people consider Jackman to fit small. We didn't really find that to be true. Shop owner Tommy is wearing a medium in the pictures. This seems to fit him spot-on in most Jackman pieces. He can choose to size up to large in these if looking for a roomier fit. If you're undecided, always size up. Tommy is 5’10,” 165lbs with a 40” chest and typically wears a Japanese large.
