Some of the very best sweatshirts in the world are made with loopwheeled fabric from Wakayama, Japan. 400 loopwheel knitting machines remain in Japan, with about 200 running at any time. Each machine can only produce about 12 meters a day - roughly 8 sweatshirts worth.

These machines were the standard from the 1920's until the 1960s when higher speed (and higher tension) knitting took over for the sake of efficiency at the cost of softness and comfort.

The flagship vintage repro sweatshirt in The Real McCoy's lineup is cut from that loopwheeled fabric, with a slim fit and vintage details. It will stretch over time, much like a vintage piece, so size down if you're in doubt.

Further details

The Real McCoy's is a brand that one could say is the best Americana repro brand in the world, but that does not even begin to do justice to the level of detail or thought that goes into their products.  

Nearly every single fabric, button, tag, and thread of these garments has been custom made to meet the spec of the original. In fact, when we first met with them, they told us the story of having a very specific thread recreated because it no longer was available. 

While the fits have been updated a bit to blend with more modern wardrobes, everything else is exactly as it was. It just doesn't get better than this if you're looking for wearable artifacts of the early and mid-20th century.
