Every since AS Colour discontinued the ‘Box’ Crew Neck sweatshirt in 2020, our team and clients have been eager to get their hands on another fleecy crew neck sweatshirt.
It too almost a year, thanks to logistic and COVID-related delays affecting supply from China (most sweatshirts/fleecey garments are made in China), but it’s finally arrived!
So what’s different from the Box Crew? Pretty much only one thing, the sleeves/shoulders.
The Box Crew had raglan sleeves, which many were a fan off. But Raglans can tend to look very casual and sporty, even for a fleecy sweatshirt. They also present a challenge printing, as the raglan sleeves means a seam that cuts through the upper chest. This limits wide prints (t-shirt printers hate printing over seams), and also means pocket prints looked a bit funky at times.
The AS Colour United Crew makes away with raglan sleeves, and goes back to a traditional ‘inset sleeves’, also commonly refereed to set-in sleeves.
The official specs are:
Pullover crew, inset sleeves
Heavy weight, 350 GSM
80% cotton 20% recycled polyester anti-pill fleece
Sleeve cuff ribbing, preshrunk to minimise shrinkage
