The Rite Stuff Heavyweight 9oz Loopwheel Pocket T-Shirt – White

The Rite Stuff Heavyweight 9oz Loopwheel Pocket T-shirt is a new version of a Those That Know classic. The latest iteration comes in a heavyweight 9oz fabric that feels more like a sweatshirt than a t-shirt. The brand enlisted John Lofgren & Co. to help them produce a t-shirt that was authentic not only in terms of appearance and fit but also in its manufacturing process. Made in Wakayama, Japan, The Rite Stuff t-shirts are produced using a knitting technique known as loopwheeling. The tee is finished with a pocket inspired by those found on workshirts made by Reliance Mfg. Co. in Chicago from the 1910s onwards.

  • 100% cotton, loopwheel fabric

  • Tubular construction – no side seams
  • Washed once, expect no shrinkage
  • Pocket inspired by Reliance Mfg. Co. workshirts

The Rite Stuff creates new takes on pre-World War II American workwear, with exceptional attention to detail and focus on quality and ethical production. Whereas most heritage clothing brands focus on the post-war years, The Rite Stuff owner, Bryan Shettig, takes his inspiration from the clothing worn by workers in the early part of the twentieth century.

Influenced by classic pieces of the time and an extensive vintage archive, the brand puts its passion for the history of heritage clothing into each piece they make. The result is tough, functional but incredibly beautiful clothing that is full of period-correct details and that looks just as good today as it would have a century ago.

Authentic, Japanese-milled fabrics and deadstock materials, combined with a production process that closely resembles that of a century ago, means that each piece The Rite Stuff makes is built to last.

Production is overseen in the finest Japanese facilities by John Lofgren & Co., resulting in heritage workwear of unsurpassed authenticity and quality.


The Rite Stuff t-shirts have been washed once so expect no further shrinkage. Wash when needed on a 30 degree or cold wash. Hang dry. As with any clothes you care about, do not tumble dry.
