Our Nea sweatshirt is a new addition to the TRiCKETT lineup and to be honest, I think it is here to stay. The jumper was inspired by a chat with my mate Joe in Napoli (another sweatshirt enthusiast) who suggested that it would be great if we could extend our side panels at the sides of the sweatshirt all the way up and not have any stitching under the armpit. At first, it seemed (a clothing construction joke there) like it was a bit of a wild idea because not many people had done it before, but we decided to give it a go… and crikey, I am glad that we did.
The panel goes all the way from the bottom hem of the sweatshirt all the way up your side and back down underneath your arm, this is to reduce the pressure on the armpit seam and because it looks like something from the year 2050. To increase the movement in the arms we have added raglan sleeves and our hallmark three layers of stitching to make sure that this sweatshirt outlives us all. The sweatshirt features our chunky rib at the cuffs, hem and neck like always and, speaking of the neck, we have put a v-insert there because it looks great and means that this is a proper sweatshirt!
The fabric is our custom-made, 100% cotton, 550gsm fleece which is only available from us. What this means to you is that it is a SUPER heavy fabric that will wash and wash, which is the most important thing. The colour of the fabric is our ‘Neapolitan’ colour which is a mixture of all the blues which were on the Scudetto-winning shirt from last year. A bright blue which looks good with everything and is always a welcome addition to any wardrobe. We love that it’s a cheerful pop of colour on a dark winter day. The sweatshirt is finished with herringbone twill at the back of the neck to reinforce it, a TRiCKETT flag label and TRiCKOLORE embroidery at the cuff to pay homage to my favourite country and city.
The fit is a little looser than previous sweatshirts that we have made in Portugal, because these have been designed for you to wear a flannel shirt or cotton shirt underneath them, although they also look just perfect with a t-shirt underneath. We have also increased the measurements across the chest and stomach for some extra room, just in case you accidentally put this in the drier… please don’t. So if you want the same fit as your previous super heavy sweatshirts (tighter across the chest and tummy), we do recommend going down a size, however if you want a little extra room and for it to fit as we intended, go for your normal size.
These sweatshirts are expertly made for us in Portugal by Anabela, Filipe and the rest of the gang. In fact, we like what they do so much, we created a little video about them and the making of the Nea sweatshirt, which you can watch below. Sweatshirts with this level of design, fabric quality, manufacture and finishing are usually well over £150 (I am not lying here, go and have a look) but we are still committed to getting as many people as possible into our lovely sweatshirts. That is why these sweatshirts are only £65 and we are committed to keeping our sweatshirt prices as low as possible.
Made in Portugal by experts in their craft, manufactured from a beautiful fabric, wonderful details and a relaxed fit. Sounds good to me.
