Ilaria's Camel Henley Tee
Lee Kung Man Shirt and Socks Knitting Factory (the present-day Lee Kung Man Knitting Factory Limited) was founded in 1923. Its founder, Mr. Fung Chou-yu, established a factory at Nam Cheong Street of Shum Shui Po in Kowloon, specialized in manufacturing knitted undergarments and socks. Lee Kung Man has set up a booth in as early as the 4th Exhibition of Chinese Products (1940-1941). Since exhibition was resumed after the war, Lee Kung Man was a regular participant at the exhibitions. Its sign board was visible at almost every exhibition, featuring the famous Golden Dear knitted shirt trademark. Their henley is often seen worn by the world infamous Bruce Lee.
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. Wear yours with our Gurkha trousers and tailored sport coat for a "sportorial" look.

ILARIA URBINATI X CRAFTSMAN CO
This collaborative collection with Ilaria Urbinati is a tribute to the unsung heroes of Hollywood: stuntmen. Taking heavy inspiration from the 1970's, the items we concocted together seek to replicate the unfiltered masculinity that was so aptly represented by these risk takers. The stoic and hardened exteriors typically associated with stuntmen are juxtaposed against the soft and pliable fabrics dispersed throughout the capsule collection - think luxe suedes, textured cottons and fuzzy shearlings. The collection is neither flamboyant nor loud and would complement the existing wardrobe of almost any man, adding a subtle yet considered dash of personality to any outfit.
In a world of fast fashion and ever-changing trends, Craftsman Co. focuses on creating quality products that will stand the test of time. We believe in understated, classic style that will never go out of fashion.
