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." And, they've modified it slightly for 2023 to make the hood more wearable while adding custom "W" & "L" accents to the drawstrings. This thing pulls no punches and gets all the details right.
The Pullover Hoodie is a modern athletic fit and features a new, unlined 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 shoulders in almost any size. Tommy is our standard fit model at 5'10," 175lbs with a 40" chest. His typical North American size is medium and Japanese size is large.
