Interpretation of a classic 6876 sweat,utilizing the original “freedom” raglan sleeve and loop back cotton fabric whilst constructing using the methods perfected on the Good Measure M-21.
The fabric itself is custom made using an Italian jaspe yarn which is produced by twisting two colours of thread together,in this case black and white which is knitted on an extremely rare English Wildt Mellor Bromley 3 thread knitting machine,which creates a very distinctive fabric finish.
Historically the colour of this particular yarn was known as “Newcastle”and appears to be a reference to Newcastle United Football club’s black and white stripe shirts.
Made in England 390 GSM and 100% cotton
Traditional fit,cover stitched seams which are bar tacked at the ends to add strength,back neck crescent and Six Eight Seven Six x Good Measure branding
SOLD OUT but available at Good Measure.
“In the years prior to establishing 6876 and in its formative period i collected many publications and artworks from a myriad of sources to further my understanding and interest in the counter cultural ideas of such groups as the Situationists,Red Army Faction,Red Brigade and The Weather underground.
Six Eight Seven Six utilized these images to develope the aesthetics of a non-conformist, non-corporate and independent organization.
In 1995 this seemed a logical and direct way to stand aside from the mainstream,however over time the use of such imagery/influences has at times become fetishised and misappropriated to the point where we’ve been content to consign this aesthetic as part of the brands evolution.
However this season as part of our collaboration with Kazuki I suggested we use some less well known images from the American counter cultural period of the late 1960’s that we had originally printed as T-shirts for circa 2003—2004 as after all, we are still 6876.
To be continued in 2015 as an anniversary project with classic and new imagery….” Kenneth Mackenzie 6-5-2014
