This USAAF Zip Sweat Hoodie is made like all Sweat goods from Buzz Rickson from 13 oz 100% cotton, and woven on an original 4-needle vintage loop-wheel loom from the 1920’s.
The 4-Needle looms are special machines that are able to weave a perfect tube, but they can only weave one set diameter (size) per loom, so for each size a loom is required. This is why one hardly ever sees perfect tube construction in modern day garments. These old looms, although slower, are able to produce a much higher quality cloth and one which perfectly matches the quality of those garments made from that period. For those who can appreciate such quality, these sweatshirts are sure to please. Comes with the USAAF Print.
