John Harrison’s H4 Chronometer by Yukio Miyamoto

John Harrison: 3 April 1693 – 24 March 1776. Precise, determined, imaginative, thorough, skilled, a key reason why Britannia ruled the waves. Not one of the few Churchill had in mind when he coined what might be his most famous quote but certainly as a key enabler of Global trade John Harrison is one of the few owed so much by so many…

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.
