Bundle up! When frost fills the air, we know you like to break out your fleece to combat the cold. The history of fleece began in Greek antiquity around the time of Homer, when King Pelias sent Jason and the Argonauts on a quest for the Golden Fleece, a coat made from the hair of a golden-haired winged ram; the Golden Fleece was a symbol of authority, and Jason needed it to be crowned king.
You may not have royal aspirations, but fleece fabric is now a staple of men’s fashion for all seasons. With varying thickness, it is used in winter coats, casual jackets, ski jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts. Natural fleece is made from the wool of sheep and longhaired goats, while synthetic fleece is made from polyester.
We at l/a/d fully embrace the warmth and comfort that fleece can provide; we use it in our hoodies and crew sweatshirts to ensure you’ll stay cozy in style.
