The Trekking sweatshirt is made of ridiculously soft bonded velour, garment dyed in sleek 70’s inspired hues. This pull-over sweatshirt has clean construction with a low front yoke and dropped shoulders, with hand warmer pockets built into the front seams. A copper nickel half-zip and thick elastics on the cuffs and hem give it a fresh, B-boy flair.
Mass manufacturing of velvet’s cheaper counterpart, velour, began back in the 1840’s with the production of cloth bolts. Up until the 1970’s velour was primarily used for upholstery and household items, and only became popular in clothing in the late 60’s and 70’s, with the emergence of streetwear.
