Second Hand Buzz Rickson's Loopwheel Hoodie 4-Needle Black Size S
The Japanese brand Buzz Rickson's are today counted among the few high-end reproduction manufacturers of military and casual garments in the world! They strive to make true replicas by carefully researching and analyzing original vintage garments, taking great care to duplicate the material while paying close attention to technique and quality. Their goal is to bring back old forgotten techniques and machines needed to make garments of outstanding quality without compromises.v
Buzz Rickson's jersey are knitted on original 4-needle 1920's vintage loopwheel machines in Japan. The facility that makes these knits is one of the last ones in the world to maintain and keep these looms in working order, making the fine 13-ounce 100% cotton tubular knit used in these hoodies.
4-Needle looms are special machines that are able to knit a perfect tube, but they can only knit a set diameter. In other words one loom for each size is required and this is why one hardly ever sees perfect tube construction in modern day garments. This special way of sewing allows Buzz Rickson's to create sweatshirts without side seams, a technique that ensures that the true shape of the garment is maintained not only during its construction but also during its life of wear.
This hoodie is second hand. It's been worn and washed yet in great condition. Perfect for the one who's looking for a great hoodie for a great price.
