Since 2005 OrSlow has made clothes in Japan that are inspired by vintage garments. Rather than straight reproductions, they focus on interpreting the past through a modern lens with emphasis on quality construction, comfort and timeless style.
This garment is a reproduction of the denim pullover used by the US Army in the 30s. Denim became a standard fabric used by the army as early as 1919, replacing the brown cotton duck work clothes that were used prior to that and the pullover was standard issue up until the 40s when a jacket with lower pockets and a buttoned up front replaced it. We actually have one of those original shirts on our archive and wrote a blog post about it which you can read here!

All measurements are in centimeters and measured on a flat surface. Width is measured straight across the chest from armpit to armpit, length is measured at the back of the garment from the neck down and the sleeve length is measured on the underarm from the armpit to the end of the cuff.
