X-post. You think a man wearing an all pink get-up cares about x-posting?..

I (clearly) know nothing about the construction of these pieces. I've always thought sideseams = bad, but this wouldn't have them if it were that simple. So how come a loopwheel sweater has them? Does it not affect how well the sweater holds its shape with repeated wearing and washing?

If you want the finish garment to have a certain shape to it then the tubular weave needs to be cut and re-sewn. The fabric itself retains the qualities of loop wheeled material despite the side seams.

Edit: it’s a trade-off at the end of the day. The lack of side seams is aesthetically pleasing (for some) and more comfortable (although that is really only an issue on garments worn close to the body).

And, proper the knitted tube that loopwheel machines make, max out at a rather small Japanese circumference, so to make larger garments, the tubes have to be cut and sewn...

Personally, I've never really had a problem with side seams and don't understand the hatred they seem to engender.

Yeah, I have the iht-1610 both with and without and I can’t remember putting the ones without on an and thinking “oh damn the difference is amazing”. In fact I can’t remember ever caring. I sometimes remember to appreciate the look of it, but I suspect it’s all an affectation.

Generally speaking I don't even notice one way or the other.  In fact, I had to look at the shirt I'm wearing (Jungmaven Baja pocket tee) to see whether it had seams or not.

It does, just for the record...
