Loopwheeled Sweatshirts
« on: December 01, 2020, 10:52:11 pm »
Like some sort of perverse squirrel, I stow away sweaters and jackets all year so that I can drape myself in them come the winter months.  I love the (California) winter :D

One of my favorite layering pieces is this The Strike Gold heavy loopwheeled sweatshirt that I picked up from Self Edge:

It's possibly the softest thing I own and it fits so well!

Do you guys have a favorite loopwheeled sweatshirt?

I’m in love with the unbrushed Merz B. Ones

That looks sharp!  How's the sizing?  Any shrinkage?

They shrink about half a size - this is actually an XL, although I would probably size up to XXL on the new colors and give a warm wash out of the gate- im careful with this one around water lol

I’m also really loving my 346’s only gripe I have is the huge neck opening when it’s a bit colder..

I also agree with u on sizing. I also wear a 7/xl in the grey ones. But would probably also size up on colored ones.
I own a couple of Merz. 102 henleys and the darker the color the smaller they run...
I have natural, army and ink blue all in xl and the natural is comfy, army is a bit more snug and the ink blue is straight out of the box tight as hell, I’m afraid after a wash/soak it’ll be unwearable.

What's the RmC sportswear label? I have a standard design grey marl from them that is super comfy, thick and robust. It is also a size too big for me. Really should move it on :D

Otherwise I'm all about the 14oz IH loopwheel sweat fabric. No surprise there though.

Not to rot the thread, because I have no sweats from Merz, but their sizing is a pain in the ring as is their ever changing nomenclature for their product lines. I hate having to go and work out which fabric they use for which design. To be fair, it is often the retailers fault for not marking things clearly. All that being said, I really like their henleys an long armed tees made of their heavier cotton jersey.

I had a difficult time sizing my TSG sweater.  Mostly because I've been quoted shrink amounts on garments before and not had anywhere near that, so when SE told me to size up, I was skeptical.  But I listened to them and, sure enough, it shrank to the perfect size!

@neph93 you just give those oversized sweatshirts to your kids.  My kids love them :D

I have the exact same experience. Don’t care too much as I wear em as undergarment mostly.
A 102 Henley with a 346 sweater is such a great combo...

I have two of their 1950 T-shirt’s and absolute love em but one of em has roping on the hems and neck line..

Their sizing really is a pain in the behind. Every color seems to fit differently.
Which frustrates me since I really do love their products when the size is right.

I really should get a 346 sweater in XXL and see how that goes, just wash without fear...

Are there no IH crew neck sweats in production at the moment? Just hoodies? I wanted to pick up a marl crew neck. Oh well.  :(

I was going to say the IHSW-34 but I checked and it is gone. It’s a very nice top, but I’d love one made of the 14oz in grey.

I wanted to revive this to say that I finally get why loopwheeled rules. I currently have a full zip hoodie from Real McCoy's and a 9oz raglan sleeve crew from them (with a soon-to-be inbound pullover hoodie from them, too). The crew has no flocking and the zip does. Vastly different vibes and both SO comfy.

I've got a Merz b. Schwanen inbound, fit pic to follow once it's arrived. Having long arms I find a lot of the Japanese offerings are too short in the arms for me but I'm hopeful the Merz will be fine. More to come . . .

I’ll be interested to hear what you think. I like the look of their heavier garments, but have had mixed experiences with their tees.
