Good evening. This is Ikeda.
Recently, the temperature has dropped and it feels good, so my desire to buy AW items has increased even more.
However, please be aware that the weather forecast is completely unpredictable and there are many days when it rains on and off.
Weather aside, I think I'm fairly omnivorous when it comes to clothes.
Of course, I also like domestic clothing, and I don't think I'm bound by any particular category, such as second-hand clothing and designer clothing from both Japan and abroad.
I don't buy luxury brands, but I like looking at their collections.
However, I don't often pay attention to so-called vintage clothing.
It may be expensive, but it may be because there are many items that don't fit modern lifestyles like regular second-hand clothes, and they don't match what you already own.
Although I don't buy so-called vintage items, there are many items that use vintage as a design source that I would want to wear.
Of course, this is limited to items that have a modern feel while eliminating vintage concerns.
ULTERIOR's VINTAGE FADED TERRY RW SWEAT SHIRT, which was delivered today, will make you feel like you don't have to be very interested in vintage.
When you think of the so-called reverse weave, Champion is probably the first thing that comes to mind.
VINTAGE FADED TERRY RW SWEAT SHIRT has a reverse weave type, but the hem has a cut-off design.
The point that the cut-off part is rolled is so adorable.
(Unexpectedly, the cutoff ended up being on consecutive days.)
The cut-off is also a feature, but the vintage-like faded feel is what stuck out to me the most.
When I first saw it, I thought it was amazing how the colors were brought out, and I had no vocabulary at all.
Even if I add unnecessary words, it will only become more difficult to understand, so I will leave the item description almost as is.
It is knitted with coarsely ground, heathered gray, highly twisted yarn for the front yarn, and non-twisted yarn for the back yarn.
The middle thread is also heather gray, and it is knitted into a heather gray mix fabric and then dyed, giving it a deep color and a vintage-like texture.
You can easily imagine that it is a time-consuming process, but without the time-consuming process of dyeing after knitting, it would not be possible to achieve this characteristic color.
I can't think of anything.
There are some used items that have faded due to sun exposure, etc., but I don't think you can find items with such beautiful fading.
Even if you start from scratch, things often don't go well.
If there are a lot of words like vintage, faded, tanned, etc., you might get a negative impression that it looks "unstylish" or "doesn't seem to match the clothes you have," but that's not the case at all. Finished with salted plum.
I hope it will blend in easily with the items you already own.
There are 3 colors: FADE GRAY, NAVY GRAY, and OLIVE GRAY.
All the military-inspired colors tickle my heart.
Although it is a sweatshirt with such a vintage feel, it has a silhouette that is in line with modern times.
The width is a little loose, but the length is not that long, so I think you can wear it neatly.
Also, since the fabric is thin, you can wear it right after summer is over.
I think I can wear it outside of summer.
It is a piece that has a vintage atmosphere, yet is firmly in touch with modern times.
Whether you like "so-called" vintage or not, I'm sure you'll like it, so please come by.
