Bilbo for MKI T-shirt Collection


Leeds menswear store MKI (Miyuki-Zoku) have collaborated with Far Eastern brand BilBo on a relatively fresh approach to pocket tees.

The store has been consistently putting out quality garments for a while now, and this collection only adds more credence to the statement. Another highlight here is the quality and craftsmanship of the Bilbo collaboration pocket tees, taking tribal inspirations in their design, hence the (removable) tassels. All of the detailing makes the tees a cut above most other iterations I’ve seen, with suede trims and inserts to finish the pieces off with a fine sartorial finesse.

We visited MKI earlier this year in our Stores of the North feature and video – a great opportunity to meet another independent doing their own thing in the city. All of the pieces below are available now directly from MKI online, or from their Leeds store in The Corn Exchange.
