SAMUEL ZELIG - THEATRE
Inspired by sweatshirts from the 30's-50's, the theatre afterhood is cut from 15oz loopback cotton french terry and 1 x 1 rib. This high quality fabric was sourced from mills in Japan with a rich history dating back to the mid 19th century. The weight is perfect; not too heavy or too light, making it an ideal piece for year round wear. It features two tone color blocking reminiscent of styles from that era. To pay tribute to true vintage, the cuff and hem ribbing is cut at 3" high. All seams are finished with merrow edge overlock and double needle coverstitching, to ensure long lasting wear and durability. Not one detail of this piece was overlooked. This sweatshirt is the first interpretation of the 'afterhood', a rare style in the world of vintage knitwear. The earliest hoodies did not include a set in hood that we commonly see today. Instead, they were crewnecks that featured a separate hood sewn on afterwards, and were also customized with additional pockets or details depending on the needs of the wearer. The afterhood tells the story of a fictional university theatre troop. It features chenille theatre masks, chain stitch letters, and running stitch initials of the class of students from that year.
