Warehouse & Co came about in 1995 as the final members of the Osaka 5, the collective responsible for driving the vintage and selvedge denim boom of the 1990s. Founded by former Evisu and Full Count employees, the twin brothers Kenji and Kenichi Shiotani, Warehouse is known for their meticulous detail and considered construction.
These sweatshirts pack a lot of punch. The fabric is a 10oz loopwheel knit produced in Wakayama, Japan. There are only a few hundred loopwheel knitting machines left in the world. The gravity fed nature of these machines, slow rotational speed, and number of yarns coming in (only 2 to 6 yarns, rather than dozens) produce the softest, lowest tension knit possible.
Sewn together in a classic sweatshirt shape, it's got the ideal vintage fit - relaxed and slightly boxy, but not too short or wide. The V-knit inserts at the front and back collars are old school sportswear details, and help to wick moisture while on the go. The seams are all flatlocked for maximum durability, and the inside of the knit has been brushed to give it an even softer hand.
Fits true to size. These will shrink about 1" in all directions upon the first wash, but will relax and stretch back out with wear. Wash cold and dry flat.
