Freewheelers Special Heavy Weight "Athletic Sweat Shirt" (Mix Grey)

Size Guide

Layer with some serious high-end sweatshirts!

Not content with straight reproductions of vintage garments, Freewheelers have taken inspiration from classic athletic-style sweatshirts from the 1920s and 30s and made them even better!

These have been constructed with Freewheelers' own specially developed ultra-heavyweight loopwheel sweatshirt fabric. Slowly woven from vintage loopwheel machines, these have a substantial, tough texture on the outside, with a double-brushed interior for ultimate comfort and heat insulation! The jet black and crimson colourway has been thread-dyed, resulting in a fabric that will age to a soulful look with wear and washing!

This sweatshirt features a vintage style set-in sleeves construction with a ribbing fabric used on the shoulder panels, sleeve openings and waistband for ultimate comfort and protection from the cold!

If you are looking for a NEXT-LEVEL sweatshirt, then Freewheelers is it!

NOTES: The garment will shrink 0.7-1'' in the chest, sleeves & vertical length ; 0.3'' in other dimensions with washes, then will stretch with wear

How We Measure

Pants and Shorts


With the major buttoned up (i.e. the top button) open the jeans and lay them flat, like shown. Measure from the front where the major button closes to the back belt loop. Double this measurement to find the waist measurement.

The way we measure the waist is different from the 'Side to Side' technique. If you are used to the 'side to side' technique you can roughly roughly downsize by 1 inch.

For example, 'side to side' measurement for The Flat Head 3002 waist is 28inch and using our method measures at 29.25inch.

Front Rise:

With the jeans lying flat measure from the crotch bar tack to the top of the waistband. 

Back Rise:

Spread out the crotch so the bar tack is visible, then measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.


One inch down from the crotch, measure flat across to the other side.


Flatten the leg and measure along the inseam from the crotch to the leg hem. 

Leg Openning:

Measure straight across the hem from side to side.





Lay flat then measure from the shoulder's edge to the other shoulder's edge.


Lay shirt flat and measure from pit to pit.

Sleeve length:

With the sleeve flat measure from the shoulder to the cuff.

Arm hole openning:

Measure from the shoulder down to the pitt.

Vertical length:

With the shirt facing down, Measure from below the collar to the bottom hem.
