ABOUT VELVA SHEEN WAREHOUSE SELECTS
Wittmore has partnered with Velva Sheen to curate a special "halfway to vintage" assortment of classic graphic tees, fleece sweatshirts, joggers, and other signature hard-to-find items culled together from fifteen years of Velva Sheen's past-season's warehouse favorites, mixed in with current basics. Most are of limited quantity and some are single "one offs" all proudly made in the USA. We’re excited to to celebrate a piece of Americana, and to learn about the history of Velva Sheen, from their old Cincinnati, Ohio roots to their current setup here in Los Angeles.
Established in 1932 as a sportswear brand out of Cincinnati, Ohio, VELVA SHEEN was best known for sweatshirts and t-shirts made for American colleges and sports teams, as well as the go-to body line for the Marine Corps. Back in the day, their design fabrication and use of 4 needle machines made the company the foundation for the “American casual” aesthetic. Today, you can still find VELVA SHEEN’s classic “2pac” tees with a tubular knit, along with several collections inspired by their 20th century originals. In keeping with tradition, VELVA SHEEN is proudly "Made in the USA”, upholding their nearly 90 year legacy of quality and design.
