Can anyone explain what it actually is? Got a hoodie for xmas and had a very comfortable and warm fleece lining but after putting it in the wash (not dryer), it has shrunk a fair bit vertically. I didn't think this was supposed to happen but I still like the comfort.
So I just bought another from End and this time sized up to counter shrinkage and the lining is totally different. Rougher and similar to loopback and also fits similar to the original size of my first one.

Ah I saw on Oi Polloi and compared it with some other sweats and noticed the vertical vs horizontal 'weave' on the front. But still not sure why the inside is different as everywhere else online has the soft fleece Puzzled

buy at least a size up as they fit small and shrink on first wash. I wear XL vs M in other brands

So basic, how could you not know this before buying? Yeah reverse weave gets mad short and boxy when you wash. But not if you wash, then wear wet and pull it down/stretch it out then let it dry. I recommend a ton of fabric softener

Cheers guys. Looking at the original version, not the Beams collab. Managed to find a grey on Yoox, but only size small, no fit info. Sound like I'm gonna need at least a medium. Anyone know where else I might find one?
