George Best T shirt by Guy Pendlebury

£ 29.00

George Best (May 22nd 1946 - 25 November 2005) Among the most naturally gifted players of the last 100 years. For those who might want to doubt this in making any comparisons with the heroes that both pre and post date his era please bear in mind the amount of alcohol he consumed and the advances in things like diet and boot and ball technology there have been in the last 40 years or so. No one trains on booze and steak and chips and more booze for afters these days. George Best was quite witty too, reading his take on going missing as a good example or that on squandering his wealth but for now try this: "Pele said he thought I was the greatest ever player. I have always thought I was the best ever player – that's the way you have to look at it. I have never looked at another player and felt inferior."

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.
