Harrison H4 Tee shirt by Yukio Miyamoto



John Harrison 3rd April 1693 – 24 March 1776.  Precise, determined, focused, imaginative, through, skilled, John Harrison’s work was key in the development of British trade and in global trade generally.   These chronometers are the first steps in GPS navigation we now all take for granted, they are analogue rather than digital and the arithmetic is human rather than digitaly processed but the basic principles and parameters – accurate time and observation – are the same.

The reproduction of Yukio’s extraordinarily accurate artwork are scaled to the size of the shirts.  On a large shirt the diameter of the movement is 40cm, it is reproduced across the side seam and wraps round to be partially visible on the back of the shirt.  three miniature views of the movement are reproduced between the shoulders beneath a similarly sized view of the chronometer in its silver case.

Yukio’s work is as painstaking in its way as Harrison’s, each surface texture and detail is precisely simulated, Yukio’s work, reproduced on these shirts at 720 and 1440 dpi, rewards close inspection.

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.
