Pure Blue Japan "Anchor" Lightweight Sweatshirt

Pure Blue Japan

Here is our latest and very special Pure Blue Japan item, the lightweight “Anchor” sweatshirt!

The special loopwheel fabric is very comfortable and lightweight but also durable. It has been slowly made on a vintage machine. The loop wheel fabric is then dyed with PJB’s special grand indigo dye. This means the garment will age beautifully over time with wear and washes!

A special copper button placed on the neck closure and has been painted white and will age to a cool vintage look. The button also has a anchor symbol raised up from the surface which gives it a unique texture.

The flat seam construction along with the lightweight fabric and ribbed cuffs make for a very comfortable wearing experience!

If you are looking for lightweight comfort shirt that will age beautifully then this is the choice for you!!
