Ginger Rogers by Lawrence Keogh

£ 29.00

It is said of Ginger Rogers that she did everything Fred Astaire did only backwards and in high heels. Appearing in 73 films in a career that spanned 6 decades and 5 husbands, she was one of Hollywoods early feminist, a staunch anti-Communist... oh, and a bit of a dancer, as our youtube link will testify. Like so many of the women of her day, she blazed a path for actresses throughout the century, campaigning for better scripts and pay for women.

She died at the age of 83 in Rancho Mirage in April 1995.

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.
