Gene Sharp 198 tee shirt by Guy Pendlebury

£ 39.00

Gene Sharp codified and organised 198 non violent steps populations can take to regain the right to bestow the power to govern on the politicians they wish to be governed by. All 198 are listed and numbered here. The colours of the text on the shirt represent the fact that adopting a colour to wear is one of the 198 steps. The least tolerant government so far has yet to incarcerate members of its population for wearing a particular colour. Or in the case of Hong Kong in 2014, carrying an umbrella as an alternative.

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.
