Rugged Style & Loopwheel T-Shirt Recommendation

Materials and manufacturing methods are the key to a simple T-shirt style. Well-made products are comfortable to wear and give you a different sense of satisfaction when you wear them.

On this page, we will introduce plain T-shirts and pocket T-shirts of brands that manufacture products while preserving old manufacturing methods such as “suspension knitting” and “loop wheel” as well as denim, which we are particular about.

Merz b.Schwanen

In 1936, a circular knitting machine was brought to Schwaben-Schura in southwestern Germany and the company began producing cotton items that were more comfortable than the linen undergarments that were common at the time. The collections are all authentic and inspired by the artisan garments of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s.

Merz b.Schwanen

The classic production process and craftsmen’s skillful details and techniques have been revived as they were in those days with the support of traditional knitwear producers in “Swabian Shura”, the land of the company’s foundation. All bodies are produced on old-style circular knitting machines with seamless side seams. And the greatest feature is that buttons, hang tags, woven tags, and packaging are all made in Germany.

Classic T-shirts

The length is a little long and the fitting is selective, but the fabric of this brand has a different feel from Japanese hang knitting. The fabric of this brand has a different feel from the Japanese hang-knit fabric. It has an elegant comfort that lies between cotton and knit.

FilMelange

FilMelange, the ultimate cut-and-sew brand created in the spring of 2007, is named for its “mixed-colored (Melange) and thread (Fil)” meaning.

These are carefully crafted by artisans who are worthy of being called Japanese masters, using carefully selected natural materials to weave soft, light, and beautiful fabrics in colors for “daily life” that are unpretentious, suit everyone, and loved beyond the ages.

DIZZY

Really soft and lightweight. It will sag slightly as you wear it, but it has a great atmosphere. Personally, I recommend wearing one size over in an elegant way.

Organic Laffy” is organic recycled cotton that is spun by collecting high-quality fibers sifted out of the organic cotton yarn manufacturing process and crossing them with 50% virgin organic cotton.

This soft and firm stuffing is specially dyed, and the original melange-colored yarn, spun to a special count, is applied to a hang-knitting machine to create a jersey fabric with a vintage look and feel.

Shorter in length and slightly wider in width. Durable binder neck. It is not only a solid fabric, but also a soft and comfortable piece of FilMelange. – Brand HP

 

SUNNY

Compared to DIZZY, I feel the material is lacking in terms of texture, but the fabric is thin and bouncy, so this is the one to wear in midsummer.

Filmerange Sunny

GIZA cotton” with strong firmness and elasticity is used, and the yarn is deliberately spun with an uneven texture to create a “cozy” look that is just barely not too clean.

The round-body design with no side seams allows for a stress-free wearing experience, as the sewn parts rarely touch the skin.
The chain stitching from the shoulders to the back collar is called taco binder, a technique that has been used for centuries to reinforce and accentuate the design.– Brand HP

・Lot 4601 Pocket T

The plump fabric and the unevenness running horizontally give it a vintage look. It is a solid fabric, and the more you wear it, the more the taste will increase. The thicker the fabric is, the better to use it as an inner layer until early summer.
