Produced exclusively for ELMC by the John Lofgren workshops of Japan. The expertise in making such a garment is really only found in one place in the world these days, and John Lofgren is the master.
These t-shirts are created using a thread that was developed in Japan that replicated the look and feel of vintage fabric, called Raffy. It is a combination of American Supima, Egyptian and Turfan cottons. Because these cottons all have different length staples (fibers), the thread has a distinctive texture of vintage fabric. The cost is naturally much more expensive than regular mass produced material, but the finished product is superior.
