BUCO TWO-TONE SWEATSHIRT / BUCO
With a wider fitting body than our existing 10 oz. sweatshirts, the BUCO TWO-TONE SWEATSHIRT features a distinctive twin-stitched arrow yoke and BUCO branding to the front and back, rubber printed at our Kobe HQ.
Constructed from a brushed loopback French Terry in 10 oz. Loopwheel knitted cotton, making it warmer and softer than its brushed counterpart. Loopwheel machines on which this tubular constructed fabric is made, are renowned for their slow knitting pace, producing only a single meter of fabric per hour. However, this low thread tension technique is what sets them apart from contemporary manufacturing methods and creates an exceptional and distinctive fabric. The resulting material is reminiscent of hand-woven textiles and possesses a unique stretchy quality and washed look of old American sweatshirts that can only be reproduced on a loopwheel knitting machine. This loopwheel sweat is knitted in Wakayama, Japan, using extremely rare machines, known in Japan as Tsuriami-ki and even rarer skill and technique, exclusively for The Real McCoy’s.
Unlike mass-produced sweatshirts, The Real McCoy’s use different yarns across the layers of the sweat to achieve the optimal finish, density and comfort and like the best vintage sweatshirts, the gusset details featured here have been sewn in, whilst this is a time-consuming process, this adds a layer of reinforcement and prevents the neck from stretching as well as acting similarly to a sweatband.
