1948 Maserati T shirt by Peter Hutton



1948 Maserati 4CLT 48. (48 refers to the 1948 racing season) Often called the Sanremo because it won its debut Grand Prix of that name driven buy Alberto Ascari. Powered by a 1.5 litre four cylinder engine with gear driven double overhead camshafts, two Roots superchargers, one driven from the cam shat the other from the crankshaft and four valves per cylinder with an exhaust pipe for each exhaust valve giving the appearance of an 8 cylinder engine. The engine produced about 260bhp at 7000rpm. By way of contrast: from 2013 1.6 litre turbo charged 4 cylinder GP engines are expected to produce about 600bhp at 12,000 rpm with about 100bhp independently available from a KERS system. The illustration is by Peter Hutton. His style of drawing and fully illustrating the main subject of his art, the engine and particularly in this case the cockpit, easing to a line drawing at the periphery integrates very well with the shirt the illustration is dyed onto. Peter Hutton’s art is reproduced at 1440dpi for these shirts.

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.
