*Four-needle loop-wheel looms are able to weave a perfect tube but they can only weave one set diameter per loom. This means the factory needs a different loom for each size, which is very time consuming and expensive and that’s why it’s never seen today. A tube body construction means no side seams, a better fit and a shirt that retains its shape. This process requires more time, more attention to detail and more expense, but the result is a superior quality garment.
