It’s a known fact that the weather isn’t doing what we thought it would for this time of year. With it being mid-July, we really thought we would be rocking bikini tops and shorts, but instead, we’re still digging for jumpers and sweaters. And luckily, Universal Works have what we need with their new loopback jersey. Reminiscent of those Ivy League classics, the sweatshirt combines athletic sensibilities with contemporary colours and fabrics. Decorated with a subtle UW logo, the jumper comes in an array of colours, ranging from warm beige to dark-hued red.
Focusing on the aspect of creating a sweatshirt that captures that 90s feel, Universal Works founder David Keyte dedicated his time this year to create a piece that captured that old school nostalgia, revealing that they eventually found what they were looking for in Portugal, “We chose an organic cotton loopback that was made from a slightly irregular yarn to give it more strength and surface texture, which we developed in an area of Portugal well-known and respected for jersey-making with a small, but the innovative company who make jersey for some of the world’s most celebrated brands. It’s a great fabric that adds fewer pesticides to our plant life and will be a staple part of our collection for years to come, so yes, for me, it’s special.”
