Though the claim that today’s goods are not as well-made as the goods of yore may sound somewhat curmudgeonly, there actually is a fair amount of truth to it. In certain respects, products really were better “back then.” Case in point: the Crossgrain Sweatshirts from New York’s Left Field NYC are modeled after Champion crewnecks from the 1950s. During that period, Champion began constructing their sweats with the grain of the fleece running horizontally, instead of vertically (ie, crossgrain), so as ensure they would keep their shape despite repeated wear and/or washing and drying. Of course, Champion has long since abandoned that practice, but, favoring the old ways over the new, Left Field has brought it back. Every Crossgrain sweat is expertly crafted in the United states from domestically sourced 14 oz., 100% ringspun cotton fleece. Additional details include side-panels, raglan sleeves and ribbed cuffs and hem.
