A VERY CHESTY HISTORY OF BONDS: 1910s

By The Bonds Team

As it’s our 100th birthday this year, so you’ll excuse us if we get a bit misty-eyed for a moment while we pay tribute to the last 100 years using our iconic Chesty – the singlet that kicked off this crazy, amazing Bonds ride. The Chesty, or the Men’s Athletic Singlet, as it was originally known, has been a Bonds staple for nearly a century. From covering the bod of Charles Kingsford Smith to decking out Paul Mercurio in Strictly Ballroom – the Chesty has been there for it all.

Chesty10s

In the 1910s, during the midst of World War I, George Bond started a small hosiery manufacturing business in Sydney, paving the way for what was to become one of Australia’s most iconic brands. From importing women’s hosiery and gloves, he began manufacturing products in the Sydney suburb of Redfern before moving to nearby Camperdown.

Join us on this journey with our amazing craft blogger Kate Camilleri as we explore each decade of the last 100 years, customising the Bonds chesty to match as we go… stay tuned for 1920s coming soon!
