Glenn Gould by Toshi

£ 29.00

Glenn Gould: perhaps the 20th century's greatest pianist. I find plenty of skill and precision in classical music but for me it lacks freedom and spontaneity, there seems to be no apparent space for improvisation. Then there is Glenn Gould: Within the confines of classical compositions he finds the space for polyrhythmic phrasing like no one else I have heard. You might have to go to jazz to find the like of his ability to add subtlety and nuance to things you thought you knew.

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.
