Washed Blue LKM 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.

The henley was originally an undergarment, made from 8 oz. mercerized cotton. It eventually became an everyday basic, especially after Bruce Lee famously wore one on its own in his movies. It's made from "mercerized cotton" is produced by treating raw cotton with caustic soda, shrinking the cloth while making it hard-wearing with a refined cotton texture. It's this reason why a classic henley is so wearable, no matter your style.
Heritage that gets better with time
Our henleys are made locally in HK, by knitting mills with nearly 100 years of heritage. It is made of premium organic cotton for sustainability and comfort that gets better after each wear. We have updated the pattern that's true to modern sizing for a slim fit, and elevated the details such as resilient placket and mother of pearl buttons, with ribbed cuff for comfort and fit.
