Soldier Blue

Soldier Blue 'Historic Wear' Sweatshirt - Heather Grey

$260

This short cut, drop shoulder sweatshirt has been crafted from an incredibly soft cotton jersey, which has been brushed on the inside for superb comfort. Each piece has of this unique collection has been customised by hand, to represent the DIY repair practices of the 1940’s and 50’s.

Sashiko thread has been used for all of the hand stitching work throughout, and every piece overseen by one tailor in the Soldier Blue studio in East London. These sweatshirts come up on the small size, and we recommend going a size up on them! So, for a piece with a lot of heritage character, and some of the best handwork in the world, why not treat yourself to something that nobody else will own?
