Chris Whitley, O God by Jane Moore

Unique and original, essentially an uncompromising poet who delivered his lines accompanied by a National Resonator steel guitar which he often played with a slide. For this shirt I believe though she used a pastiche of the artwork for Dirt Floor Jane Moore was inspired by his album Living With The Law and particularly Phone Call From Leavenworth. A cri de coeur, with surreal imagery and great phrasing. Whitley died prematurely, lung cancer the declared cause.

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.
