Regular price $ 78.00

The Loopwheel Pocket T-Shirt, made in Japan by John Lofgren & Co.

A new take on a modern classic whose history stretches back to the early 1900s, when the US Navy issued T-shirts as undershirts, to World War II when sailors wore them as outerwear, and the ensuing craze back home for this new casual look.

Our Pocket T-shirt is made with mid-to-heavy weight loopwheel, tubeknit fabric in Wakayama, Japan, at one of the world's two remaining loopwheel knitting factories. The specially made fabric undergoes no tension during knitting, resulting in a soft but strong fabric, and the best T-shirt material made today. The pocket is inspired by the workshirts made by Reliance Mfg. Co. of Chicago starting in the 1910s. The slightly heavier fabric makes it perfect as a layer on cooler days, or as a substantial standalone on warmer days. Dare we say it's the only plain T-shirt you'll ever need.
