The Only Henley Bruce Lee Ever Worn
The 5 oz. is a mercerised cotton that is thin and was used only as an undergarment; after Bruce famously wore it alone in his movies, it became a everyday's basic.
The fabric used for the garments is a “mercerised cotton”, which is produced by treating raw cotton with caustic soda, making it shrink, become more hard-wearing and gain a silk-like texture.
The material is super absorbent so that when you sweat, it evaporates just like that. It’s perhaps better than those hi-tech fabrics from Nike, the synthetic fabric is just incomparable to this cotton.
