albam Garment Dyed hoody & crew

Keeping things simple and understated, albam come correct with this new drop of Garment Dyed pieces including a hoody and crew.

I always have time for the basics done well, and this is a great example of exactly that. Taking a hoody and crew and taking that “It’s just a plain hoody, but it looks like so much more” approach, albam bring us two fantastic wardrobe staples in a selection of colours. It’s interesting to see that each item is available in White, a colour that is rarely seen on albam garments other than shirts, and to be honest it’s rarely seen in many brands collections these days as it’s not a practical colour choice. However, it looks great here and I’m sure when teamed with the right pieces, will make an outfit pop in a unique way.

Both designs are in fact reworks of old albam designs, the Crew being an updated rendition of the Athletic Crew and the hoody a redesign of the Simple Hoody after noting customer feedback. It’s great to see a brand listening to their customers and adjusting their blocks and materials to suite. Both items are made from ‘slub’ jersey (where the cotton is twisted before weaving), giving them a nice textured feel, and feature flatlock construction throughout with a nifty little gym0key pocket on the inside for whatever you wish to store. The hoody uses a the infamous RiRi zippers, finishing off the piece with style. Both items are made from 100% cotton in Portugal.
