Not to go all Bill Nye on you, but the science behind this color is actually pretty cool. It's pigment garment-dyed — which means the sweatshirt gets assembled first, then it's dipped in dye and washed twice. This creates a unique, faded color that makes it look vintage. Especially in the seams. It also makes it really, really soft. Which, let's be honest here, is all you're here for anyway.
