Pullover Hoodie 701gsm Double Heavyweight French Terry - Heather Grey
Wonder Looper - Pullover Hoodie 701gsm Double Heavyweight French Terry - Heather Grey
Wonder Looper set out with one main goal...to create the heaviest circular knits in the world. Well, this is the pinnacle of that notion. This is nearly twice the gsm of the Foxfibre, yet it doesn't feel like this stiff, unwearable garment a lot of people might expect. It reads more like a 3lb sweater you can only get from wool. But it's soft, and not itchy by any means. The French terry is so heavy that you can see the vertical lines almost like it's a corded wale. It really is a miraculous product unlike any we've seen. They call it the double heavyweight because it's double the weight of most knits you see in the industry listed as "heavyweight." This thing pulls no punches and gets all the details right.
The Pullover Hoodie is a modern athletic fit and features a double-lined drawstring hood, kangaroo pocket, raglan sleeves, ribbed side panels, ribbed cuffs and hem, flat seam construction and is made in Wakayama Japan.

Fit Notes: Shop owner Tommy is wearing a size medium. This is considered an athletic fit which reads to us as a roomier, more American cut. It's not often we see Japanese brands with that sort of cut, but the Wonder Looper owners built this brand with specifically that in mind. The medium fits with a nice amount of room in the chest and hem and plenty of room in the arms. The set-in sleeves also help to give a perfect fit in the shoulder sin almost any size. Tommy is our standard fit model at 5'10," 165lbs with a 40" chest. His typical North American size is medium and Japanese size is large.
This Crosscut has all that heavy texture goodness for which the shirt is known. It's a chunky twill with the enamel-coated buttons you all know and love. And, it's a gorgeous Rust color that shoots a bit of saturation into an otherwise desaturated lineup for FW23. Still though, this shirt has a softness from the brushing process that we've come to appreciate. The day of the stiff, crunchy flannel has come to an end, at least for now. Cozy is in, but without losing the hardiness this thing cut its teeth on.
The Easy Pant is a roomy, comfy fitting pant with a cut nice enough to make you want to wear it out and about, but just as easily to lounge on the couch. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, these pants will pair perfectly with them. We really appreciate that they used their newly acquired fabric wizardry to do the talking. Since pairing with their factory in India, the level of textile uniqueness is through the roof. This Jacquard has a topographical hand feel that you can see in the pictures but only truly experience in person. It's very, very hard to shock us after 10 years of seeing and touching fabrics on a daily basis - but this Dry Garden Jacquard has opened our eyes to what technical weaving can be.
The Shop Jacket is a new silhouette for FW23 that is designed with a nod toward classic European chore coats. It carries on this season's beige/tan color story in this gorgeous off-white color they're calling Dry Garden. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one of the last two pieces, this jacket will layer over the top of them so nicely.

We figured it was due time to bring in some tees from our fan-favorite brand. Our thinking was that if they make pants and shirts and sweats so well, the tee shirts must be impeccable. Well, they are. We love the loose, boxy fit of this tee more than we expected. And the little embroidery of the islands of Japan at the yoke is fantastic. The jersey fabric is heavy without being a "heavyweight" tee. It's a jersey with just enough weight that you can feel it but not so much that it feels like a task to put it on. This and the roomier cut give it nice breathability. If you're an orSlow stan like we are at the shop, you're gonna need one of these puppies.
If you asked the question "What would it be like if you put pockets on the Fatigue Pants?" - this might just be your answer. Of course, it has different pockets and a slightly different cut, but a similar look overall. We've received more questions about this pant over the past 6 months than we know what to do. Sometimes, we like to snag something, if we can, to test fit and glean public opinion. This one was a "yes" from the general pop, and from us at the shop, so it had to be brought in. The major difference between this and most fatigues is that ripstop fabric. It's the grid pattern you see on a macro level in the pants that is built to be more resistant to ripping and tearing. It was one of the military's first tech fabrics, without using any actual synthetic tech. Where they lack the texture of the reverse sateen, they gain a ton with the ripstop. These are a little smoother overall and we're over the moon for this roomier fit. They take on a whole new wardrobe inspiration with this loose, comfy feel. The side tab adjusters make it quite utilitarian as the piece is as a whole in general. These babies have everyone swooning.
