Loopback Overhead Hoody, Navy
A new addition to the Sunspel classic track set, this luxury take on casual leisurewear features modern silver zip and drawstring tips and the same classic fit as their other Loopback styles. The double hood avoids any lining showing, and the ribbed cuffs and front patch pocket round off this sporty, off-duty option.
‘Loopback’ is the technical term for 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 Sunspel 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, the Sunspel loopback fabric is designed to trap warm air inside, providing an insulating layer for day-to-day wear.
The model is 185cm tall, weighs 75 kg and wears a size M.
