This t-shirt design admires Britains Main Battle Tank, ‘The Challenger 2’, which is the third tank to use the Challenger name after the WW2 ‘A30 Challenger’ and the ‘Challenger 1 tank used in the ‘original’ Gulf War. The Challenger 2 is regarded as one of the world’s best Battle Tanks currently in service, sharing the top spot with the infamous M1A1/M1A2 Abrams of the US Army. The Challenger 2 is equipped with a 120mm 55 calibre L30A1 main gun, which is made from high strength ESR (Electro Slag Re-melting) steel with a chromium alloy lining, insulated by a thermal sleeve. The turret has a rotation time of 9 seconds through 360 degrees… impressive! One of the Challenger 2’s best aspects is its defence. It is regarded as the best protected tank in the world, with the turret and hull being protected with second generation Chobham armour, which the military claims to be 4 times stronger than hardened steel, yet lighter. It also has nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) protection systems located in its turret bustle. Finally, on each side of the turret there are 5 smoke grenade dischargers or it can also create smoke by injecting diesel fuel into the exhaust manifolds. A very capable tank, the Challenger 2 should be admired (or feared) depending on your allegiance.
These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with fibres ring spun into yarns manufactured exclusively for WeAdmire. These yarns are then knitted into a single jersey fabric suitable for t shirts.
The CoolMax bit exploits the surface tension of water to wick moisture from your skin. It works through micro channels engineered into the profile of the fibre. These channels are physical attributes, they are there for the life of the fibre.
The Fresh FX bit embeds a silver salt in the molecular structure of the fibre that stops the propagation of bacteria which, left unchecked, ultimately cause a sour odour. Because the silver salt is embedded within the fibre it, like the wicking, is similarly permanent; it will not leech out with wear and washing.
These attributes deliver shirts that remain cool and dry almost regardless of what you might do in them and similarly they remain fresh. And the ongoing performance of the fabric is guaranteed. This is important, these shirts will become your favourite items of apparel, you will want to wear your shirts again and again.
These shirts are marvellous to travel with, they stay fresh if you don’t have the chance to wash them, they wash easily when you do have the chance, and they dry super quickly. There is also a very useful side effect to all this: our shirts keep anything you wear on top of them and what you might wear after wearing them fresher too.
The cut and fit and sizing of these shirts is exclusive to us and was specified by Anastasia Vouyouka, a published guru of fit in the fashion industry.
The feel of the very best natural fibre shirts you have experienced with the performance of the fibres that set the benchmarks for wicking and freshness. It is very unlikely you will have experienced this level of technical performance in a decorated t shirt before.
