If you’re gonna get a Champion crewneck, it’s always been the case that the reverse weave joints are THAT much nicer. They’re more durable, hold their shape better after countless washes, and to me they’ve come represent a golden era of American manufacturing technique. It’s not suprising then that Champion Japan has produced it’s own line of basics that take inspiration from the original and add a modern twist. You can expect a better fit and an attractive marled texture that reminds me a bit of old Wings+Horns stuff. Of course these cost a bit more than their American counterparts but the price points are pretty fair (about $40-60 depending on the item). Get it straight from the source, but just a warning: you may need a proxy.
