Colonial Goods is proud to present a three-way collaboration with Goods of Desire (G.O.D.) and the Lee Kung Man Knitting Factory (L.K.M.). The essence of this project is to re-introduce a classic T-shirt with much heritage, while showcasing the craftsmanship and traditional methods of production behind a quality product still made in Hong Kong.
The T-shirts are made from vintage tubular-knitting machines dating back to the 1950s at the L.K.M. factory in Hong Kong. L.K.M. - one of Asia’s oldest operating mills - is among the few remaining factories worldwide in possession of such rare machinery. Due to the unique features of such antique knitting hardware and the time-consuming knitting process, the 100% Swiss cotton garments are unmatched in fineness of fabric as well as comfort. From Bruce Lee to the average tea-house goer in the 1960s, this T-shirt was undeniably an iconic staple of the past.
The tshirts will be available in two iconic styles: The “Roundneck” and the “Henley”.
