Clockwork Orange t shirt by Toshi

£ 29.00

The novel A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess was first published in 1962. Burgess is a good example of the cost of being unpretentious as an artist in that he tends to be underrated in proportion to his aversion to narcissism, phoney gravitas and pretension. He was a creative polymath. The shirt admires both the book and the film of the book by Stanley Kubrick, released in 1971. One of Kubrick's best films and a film that helped define the 70's in the UK. The film was famously withdrawn from circulation by Kubrick as a result of some of the reactions it engendered. A great book and a great film.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
