Our athletic sweatshirt has been updated with a new fabric finish that gives it a plush, premium feel. This cropped style has a shorter, boxy fit that makes it great for layering. The clean hemline hangs away from the body, creating a flattering, relaxed shape. Pair it with the matching track pant or wear this versatile piece over jeans for a casual and comfy weekend look.
‘Loopback’ is the technical term given to the fabric traditionally used to make sweatshirts. It’s a literal description of the construction of the fabric that features loops on its reverse and is also a reference to the original machine that was used to knit the fabric: the loopwheel.
Having originally been developed for sports garments, the loops on the back of the fabric were designed to absorb sweat from your body, passing it into the garment to keep you cool. Conversely, our loopback fabric is designed to trap warm air inside, providing an insulating layer for day-to-day wear.
