Martin Sharp t shirt by Daniel Davidson

£ 39.00

Martin Ritchie Sharp: 21 January 1942 – 1 December 2013. In 1966, then a flatmate of Eric Clapton he penned the lyric to Tales of Brave Ulysses. It covers a mood depressed by dreary London weather, a trip to the Balearic Islands in the Med, seduction and nuclear physics all in the first line. He went onto deliver the best image of Hendrix and established some jurisprudence as a co defendant in a trial about a magazine of which he was a co publisher. A very talented iconoclast. Thank you Mr Sharp.

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.
