We worked together with a local 4th generation family owned knitting mill in Bangkok to produce these new long sleeved Waffle Tops in a hard-hitting knitted waffle cotton. Our tee fits as a drop shoulder, with a ribbed collar, cuffs and hem.
Inspiration behind the AW23 collection
W’menswear AW23, “Flying in Crosswinds” continues to explore the ways gender has intersected with political ideology and been used to legitimate, or resist, different regimes. We were inspired by the life story of Maggie Gee, a Chinese-American woman who was one of two to ever serve in the Women Airforce Service Pilots in WWII. Gee was a determined physicist and pilot who believed in success and social change every step along her path.
