National Anthem Melange Pocket Tees and Sweat

Keeping things simple, Canada’s National Anthem offer up these plain pocket tees and sweater in high quality melange fabric.

In a truly traditional sportswear style, these pocket tees all feature a V on the front of the neck with ribbed material for absorbing sweat and reducing an stretching. The sweater also features the V on the rear for additional sweat absorption. Crafted from high quality slubbed melange terry cloth, all these items boast a really nice and natural marl effect on the cotton and are undoubtedly both heavyweight and sturdy in construction. For those wandering what on earth slubbed melange means, here’s a brief description of the process:

Fabric in which bands of colour are printed at intervals across a thick rope of slubbing of fibres prior to spinning. When the slubbing is attenuated during yarn manufacture, a very even blend of dyed and undyed fibre is produced and by this means, if black has been used, a grey yarn results.

There’s nothing to these designs other than quality. No additional logos, designs or detailing, just a classic piece of sportswear done incredibly well. These are for those that like their garments at very high quality, and they come with a price tag that reflects that.

All the items shown are available now from Oi Polloi, with the tees pricing at £70 and the sweat at £100.
