PATRIA'S SWEATSHIRTS

From its first appearance in the 1930s this was the staple of sportsmen from high schools through the major leagues. Always a more relaxed country, the sweatshirt shirt had, by the 1950s, crossed over to the American casual wardrobe and was introduced to British audiences and immortalised by Steve McQueen in The Great Escape.

Patria decided to make a shirt of zero compromise. The best materials, the best construction, designed to a template Mr. McQueen would recognise.


FABRIC

Patria’s sweatshirts are made from 100% organic Pima cotton grown in the USA. Pima cotton is a much-desired “extra-long staple” cotton, which can be woven into softer and more durable fibres than other types of cotton. This is key as Patria is making an heirloom piece designed to last and age whilst giving great comfort.

The cotton thread is brought to the UK where it is woven and dyed in Leicester into 550 gsm (grams per square metre) loopback fleece. To put Patria’s 550 gsm it into context, a typical sweatshirt weighs between 275 and 300 gsm. That’s correct – our fabric is 80% heavier than typical competitors.

Patria’s unique fleece has unmatched quality, heft and durability.


CONSTRUCTION

The cotton jersey is transported to London where our shirts are cut, panelled, and sewn to our exacting standards. All our seams are flatlock stitched, the waist band and cuff are deep cotton with a some lycra for stretch and comfort.

The collar is lined with cross laid cotton to help retain shape whilst giving a comfortable fit year on year.

Throughout manufacture painstaking attention is paid to quality and detail. Each jersey goes through over 30 manufacturing and inspection steps, and the finishing is by hand.


DESIGN

Patria’s sweatshirt is cut to give a comfortable a comfortable fit with room in the chest, shoulders and arms for movement without excessive slack material. There is a slight taper from chest to waist with a drop of 2 inches.

Our cuffs and waistband are, at 9.5 cm, deeper than most modern sweatshirts. The V design in the front collar completes the classic styling of this piece.

Order to your chest size based on our size guide. Your Patria sweatshirt is made to accommodate the natural shrinkage you get from a natural fibre. An analogous product would be a pair of raw denim jeans. This is a product that will require several wears and washes to break in. It’s a product that will, over time, fit you better. It’s a product that will age and soften to become your favourite Sunday morning pull-on. And then beware the son, wife or daughter who covets it.

Each Patria shirt carries our “Jack” logo on the left sleeve. Read his story here.


VALUE & CARE

Cotton is a natural fabric with great strength and durability accordingly the shirt, if looked after, will last you well. As pure cotton is prone to shrinkage so please follow these instructions:

Wash the shirt at 30°c; and
Dry the sweatshirt flat – do not tumble dry it.

To ensure you get the longest life from this piece see our detailed care guide.
