The shirts:

These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly with cool-max-image-e1485361440757.png 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.

Born on 10th December 1815, Ada Byron was the daughter of a brief marriage between the Romantic poet Lord Byron and Anne Isabelle Milbanke, who separated from Byron just a month after Ada was born. Four months later, Byron left England forever. Ada never met her father (who died in Greece in 1823) and was raised by her mother, Lady Byron.

Lady Byron, mindful of Ada’s genetic heritage, was diligent in her efforts to make a mathematician of her daughter rather than see her follow in her poetical father’s footsteps. She saw to it that Ada received tutoring in mathematics and music.

Lady Byron and Ada moved in an elite London society but the participation of noblewomen in intellectual pursuits was not widely encouraged. This did not stop Ada. Indeed she became an acquaintance to several renowned intellectuals of her day including Charles Dickens, Michael Faraday, Andrew Crosse, Sir Charles Wheatstone and most importantly Charles Babbage. Babbage was known as the inventor of the Difference Engine, an elaborate calculating machine that operated by the method of finite differences.

Ada met Babbage in 1833, when she was just 17, and they began a voluminous correspondence on the topics of mathematics, logic, and ultimately all subjects.

Babbage had made plans in 1834 for a new kind of calculating machine (although the Difference Engine was not finished), an Analytical Engine. His Parliamentary sponsors refused to support a second machine with the first unfinished, but Babbage found sympathy for his new project abroad. In 1842, an Italian mathematician, Louis Menebrea, published a memoir in French on the subject of the Analytical Engine. Babbage enlisted Ada as translator for the memoir, and during a nine-month period in 1842-43, she worked feverishly on the article and a set of Notes she appended to it. These are the source of her enduring fame.

She understood the plans for the device as well as Babbage but was better at articulating its promise. She rightly saw it as what we would call a general-purpose computer. It was suited for “developping [sic] and tabulating any function whatever. . . the engine [is] the material expression of any indefinite function of any degree of generality and complexity.” Her Notes anticipate future developments, including computer-generated music. Based on this work, Ada is now widely credited with being the first computer programmer.

In 1835, Ada married William King, ten years her senior, and when King inherited a noble title in 1838, they became the Earl and Countess of Lovelace. Ada had three children.

Ada died of cancer in 1852, at the age of 37, and was buried beside the father she never knew.

Ada Lovelace’s reputation as the first computer programmer is well deserved. She is worthy of several t-shirt designs…so if you have created a t-shirt design in her honour and want us to publish your Ada admiring t-shirt design drop us a line!

Our Shirts 

The shirts themselves are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly out of a proprietary fibre called CoolMax fresh FX. The fibres are ring spun into yarns suitable to be knitted into a single jersey fabric.

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, aiding washing but unaffected by it.  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.

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.
