Product number: 80420021050
Each of the 3 pieces is made in a different era and with a twisting method, and is a classic pack T-shirt that is typical of Nigel Kay Bonn, with a design that matches the era and manufacturing method, and attention to detail.
Nigel Cabourn uses original fabrics for most of its products.
The yarn itself that forms the basis of the fabric It is not uncommon for him to start with thread-making when ready-made products are not suitable for his purpose.
Even a T-shirt for him who loves vintage No exceptions.
Based on the idea that "if you're going to make a 3-pack T-shirt anyway, let's express the difference in spinning and the difference in comfort that comes out of it", ring spinning appeared in the 1830s, air spinning in the 1950s, and then Japan invented The ultimate pack T with the latest vortex spinning and 3 types of fabrics from different eras, each with a design that suits them.
It is a bit different from the pack T that usually contains the same thing.
It is surprising that this can be purchased for 10,000 yen.
No.1-Airspun - Pocket T with V-neck
In the 1950s, an innovative method was invented that was completely different from the principle of ring spinning.
The principle of air spinning can be easily understood by imagining a clothes dryer rotating at high speed.
As the short fibers rotate in the vortex of air, the centrifugal force increases the density of the outside of the yarn and makes it hard.
And when the thread is cut into rounds, the center part has a lower density than the outer shell.
In other words, there is a firmness that makes it comfortable to wear.
The cross-section of the thread is microscopic in hardness, so it is not stiff and uncomfortable to wear.
Moderately stiff threads lead to smooth and comfortable wear, and the surface of dense threads quickly absorbs sweat and releases it when it leaves the body.
The design is from the 1950's vintage.
No.2.-Ring Spun - Crew Neck
A sliver (a lump like absorbent cotton in which only the direction of the short fibers is aligned before spinning) is pulled out with a roller, passed through a metal ring that rotates around the bobbin, and wound on the bobbin. I will continue.
At this time, the bobbin itself also rotates at high speed, so the movement and speed of both parts are used to twist the yarn.
Although it is the oldest spinning, ring spinning continues to be passed down to the present day.
It has been 200 years since the invention of spinning, and although machines have evolved dramatically in speed, precision, and quality, the principles of spinning remain the same today as they were at the time of its invention.
As if to express the principle of spinning, which can be said to be universal, the T-shirt, which is netted with ring-spun yarn, is extremely orthodox and has a "normal" touch in a good way.
The design is based on vintage 1800s to match the oldest spinning.
No.3-Vortex Spun - Shallow crew neck
In contrast to air spinning, which is roughly spinning by swirling air accompanied by centrifugal force, the major feature is that the behavior of short fibers of tens of millimeters is controlled one by one by swirling air flow.
Short fibers are placed on a fine jet stream, and the tips of the short fibers converge toward the center of the yarn in an almost non-twisted state, and the other end is twisted so as to sink into the outer shell of the yarn itself.
This dramatically eliminates the loss of shape of the yarn itself, and by suppressing fluff to the limit, it is possible to create yarn with a very smooth texture.
This is the comfort of yarn that can only be created with the latest Japanese technology.
The design also adopts the most suitable for modern times.
Please enjoy the comfort and design with different characteristics of each of the three types of spinning.
I put it in the original box and send it.

What is Nigel Cabourn
The collection of British designer Nigel Cabourn, who is also a world-famous collector of vintage military, workwear and outdoor wear.
Inspired by the vintage collection of more than 4000 items that he has collected over 30 years, his collection is reborn into something new beyond the times.
It is very characteristic that Nigel himself distributes his own design to British production (authentic line) and Japanese production (main line).
The former mainly uses British-origin materials such as Harris Tweed and Ventile, and items produced in Mackintosh factories and knitwear factories in Scotland. We create unique collections by sorting items that make use of our unique and processing technology.
