This is vintage shirt has been sourced in Great Britain and has never been worn. Originally made in Hong Kong between 1969 & 1972, these pieces have been sitting in their original packaging in a forgotten storeroom for almost 50 years. They are completely box fresh - not even a hint of a musty odour.
The embroidery on this lovely thick cotton shirt is beautiful and vibrant. The finishing and the fabric are of very high quality.
It's tempting to put these vintage treasures on the wall or in a museum as they are amazing objects, so reminiscent of the time they were made, but they really need to be worn and enjoyed.
This will work really well as an over-shirt on top of a t-shirt or roll-neck as the fabric is so thick and warm. The sizing matches up to most current high-street shops.
Buying locally-sourced vintage or second hand is absolutely the best choice we can make when it comes to buying clothing for our kids in terms of sustainability, alongside making sure we wash responsibly, mend and buy less. We applaud you fellow lovers of vintage!
Sourced in Great Britain- this is important as a lot of vintage is imported, meaning that although it is vintage it still has a recent carbon footprint.
