Bukowski Wearing His Words by Daniel Davidson

£ 39.00

A late starting iconoclast most eloquent and compelling about the hard up and their lives in LA. As he switched from ten years working for USPS in LA, at the age of 49, he remarked I stay in the post office and go crazy - or stay out here and play at writer and starve.

Daniel has hand transcribed some of Bukowski's work for this shirt that is entirely legible. It is one of series admiring men of letters in a series called wearing their words: Tommy Cooper through Bukowski and fellow beat generation icon Jack Kerouac to the rapier wit of Oscar Wilde and the persuasive eloquence of Martin Luther King.

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.
