Boethius t shirt by Farbod Gorjian



The Artwork:

Boethius was a Roman philosopher from the 6th century. His work was immensely influential to philosophy in the middle ages and beyond. In his years he aimed to translate and preserve the wortks of Aristotle and Plato, but his most famous work is The Consolation of Philosophy.  He was caught up in a conspiracy and banished by King Theodoric the great.   While in exile he wrote the Consolation.  The book is a conversation between himself and ‘Philosophy’ in the form of a woman, she dries his tears and then discusses the truths of the world, consoling him before his execution.  The conversation on this shirt is basically thus: Men walk on their feet by nature, if a man was to walk on his hands he would be walking unnaturally and would be considered weaker than the man who walks by natural means.  Now, all men good and bad desire happiness (the supreme good). The good man aims to achieve his happiness by natural process, whereas the wicked man aims for it by means of his desires and selfishness, which is not the natural means of achieving hapiness. Therefore it can be concluded that the wicked are weaker than the good.

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.
