You could say Bruce Lee made the humble button-down Henley shirt an icon. The collarless cotton undershirt was the martial arts superstar’s default choice to wear most days, because it was comfortable and light, but also durable and strong to accommodate his high-octane training sessions.
And Lee only wore Henleys from Lee Kung Man, a traditional tailor founded in Guangzhou in 1923, that’s made its shirts the same way for nearly a century now. Lee Kung Man’s secret? Mercerised cotton, a process that stretches and treats raw cotton with caustic soda, allowing it to become lighter on the skin without weighing a person down.
Sweat-wicking like today’s modern sports garments, the Lee Kung Man shirt was perfect for Lee’s workouts, while staying stylish and simple like the basic cotton shirt.
Lee Kung Man’s shirts continue to only come in white. Just like Lee liked.
