Samuel Zelig is a brand to watch out for, featuring inspired riffs on workwear and sportswear classics that drip with personality - from every fabric to each individual embellishment. Either thanks to or in spite of their maximalist design, SZ pieces play well with others, blending extremely well with both the vintage styles that inspired them and more the more contemporary pieces they evoke.
Primarily focused on knitwear, SZ produce "Uniform" style basics with extensive customization and personality, with each patch or embroidery designed in-house for each specific garment. Thanks to their unique design and shocking versatility, Samuel Zelig pieces have become a staple around our shops, easily worn as statement pieces or intermediate layers without ever feeling out of place.
The Angel Crewneck features Samuel Zelig's usual stellar construction with a new custom design, depicting three Angels, taking stylistic inspiration from vintage American folk art and updated with some modern details. The front design is produced with a mixture of chainstitch and single-needle embroidery, and the back is clean and blank (because there's enough happening up front. The sleeves also feature star-shaped ribbed knit appliques, for extra style and durability.
The sweatshirt pattern itself is based on vintage athletic sweatshirts from between the 30s and 50s. It's made from a 15oz, 100% cotton french terry cloth from Japan that's been given a vintage wash to prematurely patina the fabric and manage all shrinkage.
The construction is solid, from the set-in sleeves to the double-needle coverstitched seams - it's built to last a long time. The inside of the knit is unbrushed, giving it a more dry and airy hand that is more suitable for year-round wear.
These run slightly large - if you're between sizes, we suggest taking the smaller of the two. Wash cold and dry flat.
