MERRY COMPANY : POLO AND 'MADE-IN-JAPAN' LOOPWHEELED POCKET TEE

Dropped yesterday, Merry Company's newly curated heavyweight Polos and made-in-Japan Loopwheeled Pocket Tee are a must-have.

POLO - ALMOND / BLACK / INDIGO

Merry Company's Polo draws inspiration from classic sportswear that was popularized by legendary athletes in the mid-20s. Heavily vintage-inspired with subtle contemporary twists, the Polo features a more relaxed fit with proportionate arm and body length, Merry Company Mother of Pearl buttons, and side slits with extended back.

LOOPWHEELED POCKET TEE - NATURAL / BLACK / NAVY

The production of loopwheeled fabric is highly labor-intensive and considered to be quite rare as only Germany and Japan have a small number of loopwheel machines in procession. A loopwheel machine knits fabric in a circular motion, rotating and knitting a long tube of "loopwheeled" fabric that's then cut into garments. These original loopwheel machines are extremely slow and can only produce about one meter of fabric per hour.

Because a loopwheel machine rotates and knits at a very slow pace it does not apply any tension to the fabric, resulting in the unique texture of the fabric that is both incredibly soft and dense. Exclusively made in Japan, the Loopwheeled Tee is the Holy Grail of all tees.
