Whitesvilleis a Japanese brand known for making superior basic garments inspired by vintage American sportswear from the middle of the last century. Whitesville is part of the Toyo Enterprise range along with Sugar Cane & Co and Buzz Rickson's to name a few.
If you are looking for a perfect high quality sweatshirt which has been carefully reproduced in the same style and quality as sweaters from the middle of the last century this sweatshirt might be just what you are looking for. To succeed in this Whitesville have knitted these 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. 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 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. Dan is 186cm tall and weighs 84 and wears a size M.
