Byron by Toshi

£ 29.00

Famously described by Lady Caroline Lamb, one of many lovers, as mad, bad and dangerous to know. Especially revered in Greece Byron is considered by many to be one of Britain's greatest poets. He died aged just 36. He packed a few lifetimes worth of lovers, observation, experience generally and philanthropy into his time. He fathered just one child in wedlock, Ada Lovelace. Byron deserted the family a month after Ada was born. Ada was raised by her mother to be mathematical believing that the "poetical" in Byron was the cause of his "insane" behaviour.

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.
