LONELY KIDS CLUB HANDMADE AUSTRALIAN GOODS – MADE ON ORDER & MADE TO LAST.
A year or so ago, I went shopping to try buy a new parka jacket. I found that all the ones I liked were about $300, made in China anyway, and I felt like rather than paying for the quality of the garment, I was just paying extra for the store space, the staff, their investors etc. I figured I could do better. I realised I could make a better quality product for half the price, hand make it in Melbourne, and make my own personal touches like using burnt wooden buttons, and personally choosing my own inner-lining fabric.
Welcome to the LKC Mario Kart 64 Parka jacket.
Probably my favourite multiplayer game second only to Super Smash Bros, I wanted to do something special with this. So I printed the Mario Kart 64 title screen to use as an inside pocket, and then sourced a vintage Mario Kart fabric from the US to use inside the hood. It features turtle shells, stars, and bombs. It’s so rad. Then on top of that I added a special Kinder Surprise feature – Every jacket arrives with a toy from the Mario universe (chosen at random) hidden inside a front jacket pocket. Boom.
As always I added the feature that you can keep your hands warm behind the front pocket. I also did an industry no-no and used a 100% cotton rayon as inner-lining instead of a polyester blend because it’s just so nice and soft to wear. Plus I’m still using my special stash of 100% Australian cotton twill as outer-lining. The company that used to make it went under but I stocked up in advance. I figure if I’m going to make a parka, I’m going to do it properly.
It’ll keep you warm, dry (can confirm) & when the fabric runs out it’s gone for good / will never be re-released after this season.

We do not mass-produce our garments. All our clothing is only ever produced in limited quantities. When you wear one of our goods you know you’re one of the few who will ever get the opportunity to do so and there is something special about that. It allows the clothing to feel more personal and more of a statement .
Here at Lonely Kids Club we believe in fair, ethical production. We don’t think people need to be exploited to create clothing. We do not use sweatshop labour in any part of the production process. We have all factories we work with inspected, and make sure all workers are being paid fairly and working in a clean, safe work environment. We produce all our goods from scratch, so we are able to monitor the production process from fabric printing all the way to finished product. This allows us to make sure the entire process is done ethically. We personally believe this makes the clothes feel better for the buyer, and this also leads to better quality goods.
