Soft, slightly washed out, natural cotton fabric, old, sometimes battered hampers clad in cloth and a wristband made with different-sized meshes – that was something Peter Plotnicki had never encountered before.
“I was instantly fascinated by the triangular patches under the arms and the intricate label with its lettering made with fine viscose thread. And on top of it all – no lateral seams.” A feeling of happiness overcomes him – he holds an authentic workers shirt made in 1911. Peter Plotnicki, a professional designer and men’s tailor, knows instantly that this flea market-find is a very special piece, destined to alter the course of his whole life.
