Our Dutch ‘colleague’ LONG JOHN just dropped the news about his most recent project, a collaboration with Pike Brothers. “As we’re both lovers of authentic quality products we came together to make an exclusive t-shirt with all the details from 1948,” he writes. And what are those details you might ask, well a Pike Brothers 1948 tee is first of all slim fitting and made 100% cotton. Secondly, the threads are yarn spun on vintage ring spinning machine and it naturally bears the authentic Pike Brothers Sportswear label. And finally, for the LONG JOHN collaboration edition it also features a handstamped handtag with the LONG JOHN anchor-logo. The shirt is made in a limited small run and only available on their respective websites, you find links below.
As you may already be aware, Pike Brothers specialize in the production of vintage army and work wear from the 1930s through the 1950s with carefully selected materials and the highest degree of attention to details. LONG JOHN is an online platform for authentic craftsmanship and innovative lifestyle products. The guy behind it is Wouter Munnich and his motto is “the anchor for success!”
