Nikon F black (from the top) T shirt by Yukio Miyamoto

£ 49.00

Introduced in April 1959 this is the camera that established Japan's dominance of the 35mm format. Probably the toughest 35mm SLR manufactured. I expect every non studio professional photographer had more than one of them. If you google Don McCullin apart from seeing some stunning images taken with a Nikon F you will see one of his that stopped a sniper's round in Cambodia and saved his life. I understand the shutter still works!

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.
