Pretty sure they said loopwheeled. In fact I think it was labeled such (there were descriptions next to them on the table). They're still in the prototype process, but the ones they had on display had seams all over the body, rather than being seamless. There were three fabrics, super smooth like an old school sweatshirt, to slightly nubby, my favorite being the last. Great texture on that one.
They mentioned it was more expensive than any of the denim they've used thus far, so it might be more expensive than their jeans. Apparently there's only 10 or so looms in the world like this.
