Interesting how these sites profit from my friends & I without asking..

That’s life..

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”.

Colonial Goods,「住好啲」和「利工民」現協力出產一系列棉衫產品。

這款高質素港產棉衫,其精粹在於復興古典韻味,同時突顯背後賴以生產的精湛工藝及傳統生產模式。

有關棉衫是由利工民織造廠採用自1950年代傳承沿用至今的筒織機製造。該廠是亞洲其中一間歷史悠久,並在世界僅存少數擁有該款罕貴織機的工場之一。

由於該型舊式織機獨具特性,加上工序精繁,編織而成的純正瑞士紗服飾,無論在質料精緻度及舒適度各方面,均非其他同類產品可比。因此,在1960年代,無論李小龍以至茶館普羅常客均視這些線衫為當時不爭的主要標誌性產品之一。

這件棉衫分別有圓領和開胸配紐兩個款式。

Basically what I’ve been working on for the past year boils down to this. Damn it’s hard trying to pull everything together, but finally this is it. If you happen to be in the city, please do stop by and check it out as it’s only up for a day.

There will be a beautiful gallery of the factory as well as our campaign by Carmen Chan. A film was also made so you can really see the machines in action.

When I started this, I didn’t know what would come of it. Some people laughed at the idea early on, and if it wasn’t for the support from friends and family, this wouldn’t have happened.

Anyway, you can also just RSVP via the “ask” on Tumblr. Stop by for a drink and come check out the “Made in Hong Kong”.
