Avro Vulcan T shirt by Lee Frangiamore

£ 29.00

It first flew in 1952, entered active service as the UK's strategic bomber in 1956, was last used in anger in the Falklands conflict in 1982 and finally retired in 1984. The last forty examples were manufactured in 1958. The last flying example visited most parts of the UK while it was still safely able to do so in an extended farewell throughout 2015 landing for the last time in October of that year. Quality, thank you AV Roe…

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.
