Wood Wood Blot Distress Sweatshirt

Words by Rolan Gregg

We’ve all heard of the Rorschach inkblot test, a series of monochromatic blobs on flashcards that illuminate deep psychological traits and trends.  There’s something about the symmetry, texture, and shape in the Rorschach tests that make it not only fascinating but memorable.  With those ingredients in mind, Wood Wood has created a distressed sweatshirt patterned with the famous inkblots.




Created in a soft, jersey cotton with piping on the seams and ribbed cuffs, there’s a systematic peacefulness from the random patterning of the Rorschach blots.  Easily matched for casual wear, this sweatshirt doesn’t have to be downplayed.  The design appears contemporary and striking enough to be the centerpiece of a more tailored outfit.

If you’re in Portland, try one on at Frances May.
