Driven by his passion for traditional fabrication processes, Peter Plotnicki created a collection garments solely made by 1920s-1950s circular knitting machines. All tops are produced in Germany, and are based on authentic working man’s apparel ranging from the 1920s to the 1950s. Some of these pieces are modified fit while others are copied from the original piece down to the last seam. No matter what the provenance is of the individual pieces, the collection as a whole is made to exacting specifications and quality that is unmatched by modern apparel factories.
