This is probably the world’s heaviest loopwheeled T-shirt!
Yet it’s the epitome of an easy-going look thanks to its relaxed fit, the fabric’s slight slub structure, and the detailed neckline, which is an eye-catcher in its own right. This piece is special in many ways: the loopwheeled fabric is unique from the ground up, and the slight slub structure adds an even more casual look to it. And while this T-shirt is a serious matter with a weight of 14 oz. / 380 grams, it still feels soft, good, and comfortable in every moment!
Circular knitting machines, also known as loopwheelers, were developed over 100 years ago. They come from the time when Germany's textile industry stood out for its quality and innovation. Circular knitting machines deliver knitted fabrics that differ significantly from normal jersey fabrics in terms of look and feel, but also in terms of durability and dimensional stability. A striking feature is that the shirts do not have side seams, which makes them special. Producing the long-lasting fabrics is a time-consuming and slow process and that is exactly the reason why this method is a specialty these days. The last specialists are based in the Swabian Alb, which has always been known as the stronghold of textile manufacturing.
Just as old, mechanical typewriters create a unique typeface on paper through small irregularities in the punctuation, the circular knitting machines, with their over 1000 needles arranged in a circle, create an individual image in the knitted fabric through small tolerances, which is the characteristic component of this loopwheeler- Garments is. The elaborate production process means that only the best yarn qualities made from organic cotton, wool and viscose are used. The qualities do not use chemical additives, such as an industrial pre-wash. This makes each part an environmentally friendly textile made from natural materials that are gentle on the skin. In order to make the Spirit tangible when unpacking, the Good Originals come in an authentic small-series cardboard box with corner brackets and a separate note on the story.
