The 1965 Tank Top is a piece from our Tubular Knit or circular knit series. Underwear such as tank tops were made on old circular knitting machines until the 1970s. During production, a tube is knitted, which is then cut in and provided with sleeves, etc. in further work steps.
The speciality about tubular knitting is that the shirts have no side seam. This increases the wearing comfort.
Per size it needs one machine which, from a modern point of view, make the old tubular knit machines very unprofitable.However, for us the old production approach is as important as the product iteself and therefore we are very proud to offer the genuine tubular knit tank tops. The tank tops are made for us in a small factory in Portugal and produced with great attention to detail.
The 1965 Tank Top is a typical slim 1960s fit.
With a weight of 240g it is a heavyweight among tank tops.
The tank tops come in a set (2 pieces).
The following details characterize our 1965Tank Top Set:
- 100% cotton, 240 gsm
