Fine Aran Honeycomb Henley in Vintage Ivory
Loop & Weft delivers a timeless Henley made of a Honeycomb fabric knit in Wakayama, Japan. This result in a soft, comfortable yet structural fabric: thanks to the fine tuning of the circular knitting machines, they manage to suppress the lateral distortion that usually happens with honeycombs fabric.
This Henley is sewed with cotton thread and a 4 needle flat seams machine. The latter requires some skills to operate and is not easy to find nowadays. Not only it flattens the seams and make the piece really comfortable to wear, but it also reconstructs the unique atmosphere found in old thermal shirts.The cuffs use original arrow-swing ridge knitting ribs that are knitted one by one with a special knitting machine.
The silhouette is not a tight fit peculiar to thermal, but is relatively relaxed allowing to wear this Henley as a first layer, or by layering over a t-shirt.
