Looks great in your photo, but the ones on their website look horrible. The fabric looks the same quality as Walmart. I shot them an e-mail if they're going to restock just to try some out. I'm a medium in the old Buzz Rickson fit.

I want to thank Kiya for his advice on this one. I love this thing.

Notice how the neckline pulls away at the side seams and forces the front and back of the neckline towards the neck. This is exactly what happens with my vintage ones. The front and back V detail is fantastic (rib material and no silly runoff stitch). Check out the puckering around the waistline...just like those JC Penny double Vs that vivaloschet posted above. The sleeves are baggy at the under arm, yet tight around the forearm. Yet another great vintage detail. It's hard for me to compare the fabric to my vintage sweats, since they have no doubt been washed a million times. The Hinoya sweatshirt is very soft, and super comfortable.

The transaction with Hinoya was great. They corresponded in English, accepted paypal, and shipped fast. I sent the payment on Wednesday afternoon and had the sweatshirt on Saturday morning.

The color is a bit off in the picture. In real life it's charcoal gray.

I got an e-mail from Hinoya.

"Although it is really regrettable, the sweatshirts of them is sold out now...

Probably, I think that they will arrive again this autumn.
If the time comes, please send me e-mail again.
I will prepare a sweat shirt for you then!!

Best regards,

I'm good on sweatshirts for a long while. Wore my grey OG BR today to work and remember why I love these things so much. Spectacularly warm and its so comfortable. As much as I've worn and washed it I'm surprised I haven't seen much wear on it.

For those interested in the Strike Gold sweatshirts, I've just received mine and could not be happier with it; super soft, warm (it is indeed a tighter weave than other brands), and great construction.

I wear a 42" when it comes to shirts, so got an L in this.

Simple is cool, but sometimes a print can complete the sweat. Gotta stay 100% cotton, though. That's one crop the US protects from imports. Sure you can assemble you goods in China, but you gotta pay a stiff tariff if you're gonna retail it in the US. That's why us yanks are up to our ears in cotton/poly blend sweats. The following are 100% cotton sweats produced for the Japanese market. Only Champion lists their product as made in China. The Champion Rochester line is the most affordable vint repro available. Others may, or may not be made in China, but I've seen first hand 'Made in China' labels switched out after reaching the shores of The Land of the Rising Sun.

Harley uses a loopwheeled body with the freedom sleeve construction

Posted Image

Champion cuts corners by using seams on the side of their shirts, but the price gives you a killer fit with 4" banding and set-in sleeve construction

Posted Image

cheswick by sugar cane designers are some real 'heads.' the 60's body with shorter banding still has the loop-wheeled body and some crazy cool period patches. The r. crumb "keep on truckin" had me sold in an instant. but as english is not their first language, they are bound to miss an 's' here or there....see spelling on 'home'


[url="http://i1254.photobucket.com/albums/hh612/aedressler/vintagereprosweatshirts003.jpg"]http://i1254.photobu...atshirts003.jpg[/IMG][/url]

The orange short sleeve is also 60's 70's loop-wheeled motorcycle motif by barn's outfitters. don't sleep on these guys cause they know their biz too...inside japan, that is.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

The yellow eagle sweat is also a loop-wheeled double vv with 4" banding.
Red, white and blue Pelham Ducks is another cheswick by sugar cane

The Norton designers may have produced a sweatshirt that is louder than their bikes:) Love all the action on this one!

Pherrow's gets it right with a cool De Paul flocking in blue on their loop-wheeled sweat with 4" banding.

Finally, had to give props to mws (mid century, wild hot rod, surf beat). We may never remember that acronym, but i think your shirts are unforgettable.

ive had my eye on one of these as well; very affordable and looks like decent quality

I bought a black Buzz Rickson sweat the other day! Super impressed by the softness and the construction. Does it shrink at all? I ended up with a large, which is slightly too big for me, but the medium was too tight across the shoulders, so I'm hoping it will at least tighten up a little bit after a wash.

i also got my first BR sweat not long ago, and although i love the tube construction, i was a little put off by the front V-placket that seems sown onto the sweatshirt and not cut out & sown like i've seen on other repros... knowing BR's reputation, i doubt they'd screw this up so do any vintage sweat experts know if this is how it was done back in the day? (btw you have to look inside out the sweat to notice this)

With modern knits and rib at the neck opening you don't need to have functional inserts - the neck opening will stretch enough to go over the head and has enou elasticity to get back (and stay) in shape.
For sure, this is not truly authentic, but I doubt that most people would be happy with "authentic" fabrics and construction - the sweater would stretch and not get bet into shape, only after washing and even then only somehow. Within the shortest of time the top would be wider than long - exactly like the vintage pieces that can be seen on auctions...

(in most countries customers would return such sweaters and ask for their money back these days.)

not sure i follow your logic.. we are talking about vintage repro sweatshirts not modern day ones ?! BR is loopwheel tube constructed, the fit should not alter with wash.. i have to admit i'm quite surprised the V-placket is "fake" .. considering how places like history preservation rave on about the construction & authenticity of BR sweats (http://historypreser...php?uniqnum=547) btw i'm not sure the authentic v-plackets really have to do with the boxy shape of vintage sweats either..

Lots of the Japanese brands have actual V-gusset inserts, so I'm also surprised to hear BR uses fake ones....
