Practicality meets Comfort

A gifted piece

In a world of zip-up hoodies and crewneck sweatshirts, the most demanding of you may find it challenging to strike the perfect balance between comfort and functionality. But fear not, our latest Half-Zip Sweatshirt is a true game-changer coming to bridge the gap.

The ultimate collar

What sets this sweatshirt apart is its distinctive neckline. With a zip that stops mid-chest, it boasts what we affectionately call a ‘half-zip’ or 'trucker collar'. Co-opted by the motorways kings in the 1930s for its functionality, we’ve put the class 2 lorry licence aside and dialled up the style.

Tailored for perfection

A sweatshirt should offer comfort without making you sweat for it. That's why we've meticulously fine-tuned ours to strike the perfect balance and give you maximum freedom of movement. Neither too snug nor too loose, it boasts a straight fit that works for any occasion, including an unplanned U-turn up a country lane.

Crafted from premium cotton

The body and sleeves of our Half-Zip Sweatshirt are made from 100% organic cotton, in stark contrast with most sportswear garments which incorporate polyester and other synthetic materials to add strength and save costs. But not on our watch. Here, we've opted for natural fibres without sacrificing durability. On top of that, unlike polyester-infused counterparts, you’ll be able to wear it all day without worrying about skin irritation.

Luxurious fleece lining

Picking a natural fibre made from 100% organic cotton is all good and that, but you still need to know how to use it effectively. As you know, the raw material can be worked in 1,001 ways, and we've chosen to weave ours as a fleece. It's clearly the fabric of choice for this kind of sportswear, and we sure did it justice. Without getting too technical, fleece is a knit derived from jersey, smooth on the front and looped on the reverse. This inner side is then brushed to create a soft, fluffy, comfortable texture that feels great against your skin. Perfect for a sudden chill that calls for an extra layer.

Reinforced ribbing

Say goodbye to ribbings that lose their shape after a few spins in the wash. Our Half-Zip Sweatshirt features reinforced ribbing made from using 10% elastane. It's designed to withstand the test of time, ensuring a snug fit that won't start struggling a few months in.

A palette of possibilities

Our Half-Zip Sweatshirt comes in four timeless shades from classic indigo blue and military green to versatile grey marl and raw off-white. Whether you're a fan of muted tones or bold hues, there's one to suit every taste.

Easy care

Keeping your Half-Zip Sweatshirt looking its best is a breeze. Simply put it in the wash on a gentle cycle with similar colours, then lay it flat to dry in a well-ventilated area. It's that easy.

Style it your way

Whether you prefer it fully zipped, partially open, or completely closed, our sweatshirt offers its fair share of options. Pair it with a colourful T-shirt for a laid-back look, or layer it over an oxford shirt for a more polished ensemble. The choice is yours.
