This sweat is inspired by our military ties. The camouflage fabric we have developed is based on the original 1960 pattern. From 1960 the British Army was issued with this 1960 pattern field uniform to replace earlier plain green uniforms, becoming ubiquitous by 1968.
It is a 4 colour woodland pattern design. Camouflage fabric or disruptive pattern material (DPM for short) was first used in the early 1940’s and issued to the Parachute regiment and British Commandos. Early DPM patterns were said to be hand painted and the brush strokes are often seen in early pieces. Our DPM sweatshirt mixes British military heritage with our athletic and boxing DNA to create a unique piece of clothing. We have pigment printed our camo so it will only get better with age, the print will gradually fade through care and wear.
This classic design is crafted in 100% cotton loopback sweat fabric with reinforced stitching and bears all the hallmarks of vintage sweatshirt detailing, couched with a modern fit. The term loopback describes the type of knit that features loops on the underside of the fabric. Having the loops on the back of the fabric was designed originally absorb sweats away from the body into the sweatshirt to keep you cool.
