Bayeux Tapestry by Anon

Bayeux Tapestry, the tapestry that launched a thousand t shirts. The original of this t-shirt is the shirt that inspired the formation of WeAdmire.net. I was thrilled to see a t shirt that inspired me to buy it one Sunday in 1989. I enjoyed wearing the shirt to the point of my friends ribbing me about having nothing else in my wardrobe. At the time I commuted on a train called the 1066 Express, albeit at 07.27 from Wadhurst in East Sussex. Wadhurst is about 20 miles north of the town of Battle on the Hastings railway line. Further my history and general studies master had it that English became the dominant language it is at least as much because we lost the Battle of Hastings to the Norman French as anything to do with the establishment of the British Empire. I spent the thick end of the next 20 years looking for a t shirt I would enjoy buying and wearing as much. What did I find? Plenty of cheesy jokes, visual puns, meaningless stuff struggling to be zany and brands what do you say about yourself when you wear a t shirt emblazoned with some brand or other? After about 20 fruitless years I decided to do something about the lack of meaningful expression in the general offer of t shirts and founded WeAdmire.net.

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.
