I waited almost 10 months for the LW09’s in my desired color/size to be restocked, and then I found out about the LW81’s… after many emails and IMs I managed to get them reserved, picked up and shipped over here… Thanks a ton for those who helped me, you know who you are… I was originally going to get a LW81 in medium after seeing the measurements, but decided to go with a small, as it is designed to be very fitted and slim. It’s more of a layering piece. I’m still kindda getting used to how fitted it is, but I tried on the medium one also and it’s definitely a slight bit too loose. The fabric on the LW81 is also thinner and a lot more stretchy than my LW05 pullover hoodie and the LW09 “classic” single-zipup, which uses the same “classic” fabric as the LW05. As most of you already know, Loopwheeler zipup hoodies use YKK zippers, the LW81 has a double YKK metal zipper, it is definitely nowhere as nice as Lampo or RiRi. That is about the only thing I don’t like about this piece.
Here’s how it looks like, in today’s WAYWT photo:
