“For our first men’s collection, I wanted to create a shirt that looks as though it spent an entire decade in your closet, and has been a well-loved favorite. At first glance, simple; but up close, not at all simple. With a nod to the vintage long johns sweatshirt, it has reversed stockinette insets and expressed seam details, giving it a timeless yet modern look.”– Julie Hoover

Garment is worked in pieces from the bottom up, with expressed seams at the sides, neckline and sleeve cuffs.
