These are the ultimate loopwheeled t-shirts, no surprise that they come from Strike Gold, a brand highly dedicated to pushing the boundaries of both selvedge denim and loopwheeled basics.
This heavy 100% cotton fabric is made on vintage loopwheeling machines in Japan. Not many of these machines still exist in the world as they're difficult to maintain and run at a very slow pace. This jersey is produced and pulled down by gravity to create a zero tension knit, creating that trademark horizontal pattern you seen in a well worn in loopwheeled t-shirt or sweater. Available now in black, white, and a new navy color. One sizing note.. to be able to offer these in XXL they cut up the tubular knit fabric (only for this size) to create a larger body t-shirt, making them (we think) the only Japanese brand offering loopwheeled tees up to a XXL size.
We've also received a full restock of Strike Gold heavy cowhide leather belts in tan and black.
