Sunspel Cotton Loopback Shorts - Grey Melange
Inspired by athletic sweatshirts, these shorts have been updated in a new fabric finish that gives it a plush hand feel. The fit is relaxed without being baggy and the drawstring waistband and side seam pockets emphasise the sporting origins of the style. A great alternative to our much-loved track pant, our sweat shorts are proof that when it comes to comfort, you needn’t compromise on style.
‘Loopback’ is the technical term given to the fabric traditionally used to make sweatshirts. It’s a literal description of the construction of the fabric that features loops on its reverse and is also a reference to the original machine that was used to knit the fabric: the loopwheel.
Having originally been developed for sports garments, the loops on the back of the fabric were designed to absorb sweat from your body, passing it into the garment to keep you cool. Conversely, our loopback fabric is designed to trap warm air inside, providing an insulating layer for day-to-day wear.
