【Cotton-Linen Five-Sleeve Thorough Loop Series】Development Process
During the first design of the thorough loop jacket, as I wrote.
Stroke by stroke, entranced by graphite, the colors in my mind ranged from black to white. The initial collection of thorough loops naturally felt that deep charcoal gray and light ash gray were fitting, much like aged walls and stone tiles, an innate harmony.
For the second design of the thorough loop, desiring a touch of nostalgia, a hint of youthfulness, wanting to pair it with jeans, denim color came to mind naturally. Not ready-made, I wanted to dye it myself, dye it into the right shade of denim, and then let time wash it gradually, fading into its own beauty through life's traces.
As the weather grew hotter, summer arrived.
Black as the sky, yellow as the earth, the universe in its primordial state, suddenly life seemed to deserve a splash of color. Five colors at once. A touch of vibrant yellow, leaping shades of green, subtle shades of pink, and then a definitive black and moonlit white. Five colors in one go, much like the cardinal directions – east, south, west, north, center – neither too many nor too few.
More cotton, a touch of linen, loosening the waist, this summer feels a bit more colorful, a bit more carefree.
Still, the slow put-on and swift take-off thorough loop, introspection with a tranquil mind.
Live life a bit more vibrantly.
To master martial arts, you first need intense focus and a peaceful mind. Lacing up the loops to clear your mind and recover your sensitivity. The path to spiritual awakening starts from your fingertips.
Untie the loops in just 3 seconds. The "fast-release" feature makes it easy to check out any wound or injury on the body. It also symbolizes an end of the session, letting go of nerves and intense emotion caused by the training or fighting.
The history of the thorough loops can be traced back to the Ming and Qing Dynasties in China. Back then, only kung fu masters and apprentices would wear clothes with thorough loops. The attire was not only training gear but also proof of their kung fu identity. Some might have noticed that Jing-Wu Martial School used the same loops on their uniforms in the early 1900s.
However, this authentic design has gradually replaced by modernized clothes since the 1930s. Till now, it has nearly become a lost art.
The energy flow, so-called "Chi" or "Qi", is a critical concept in Chinese martial arts. To make sure the flow is smooth, your kung fu suit should not cause any pause to your movements; otherwise, your moves won't be powerful enough because the energy is blocked.
The cutting on the shoulder is a whole piece of fabric, perfectly connecting the two sleeves to the back. This seamless design provides exceptional stretchability for smooth movement.
Buttons and knots often break off kung fu movement, while the thorough loops don’t. The loops can distribute and dissolve force applied upon them, eliminating any possible obstacles from the cloth.
Another downside of buttons is that they could easily become targets. If your enemy punches you on the button, it can hurt you badly because all the force is concentrated on that single spot.
What about zippers? A zip jacket won't stick to your body as it often puckers, and you'll have to pull it from time to time. It is quite distractive especially when you're training.
We believe that warriors can be categorized by their bone structure and body shape. There are 5 types of warriors, a hawk, a crane, a dragon, a tiger, and a bear. Before you get the gear, find out your warrior types first:
We make different frame types based on the 5 warrior types. If your measurements are between sizes, select a larger size for a looser fit or a smaller size for a tight fit.
