For this version of our short sleeve sweat we have used a slightly lighter weight fabric and constructed it inside out, meaning the loop is on the outside and the marl grey face is on the inside. The effect is a new twist on this classic. We have left the sleeve edges raw and unfinished, these will fray and have loose ends, it's deliberate. This new style has no rib at the waist and is finished like a T shirt with a cover stitch.
Think Steve McQueen, think The Great Escape and here you have Good Measure's interpretation of the classic short sleeve sweatshirt.
It's Made in England from heavyweight 420gsm, loopback cotton jersey, knitted to our specs in very small runs by one of the last remaining mills in the country, the owners of which, it would be fair to say are fabric fanatics
This shirt itself shares the same design and construction as the original M-21 but this variant is a true heavyweight in 100% cotton with a great handle reminiscent of vintage American sweat shirts from back when.
As always we have endeavoured to keep as much of the production as local to our Manchester base as is possible, even down to our Stockport made and screen printed swing tag and the twine that attaches it to the shirt.
