Jean Cocteau Le Sang d’un Poète T shirt by Toshi

£ 29.00

The Blood of a Poet is Jean Cocteau's controversial early avant-garde film made in 1930's. Cocteau was a notable non conformist libertine said to have been a Grand Master of the Priory of Sion. A position he shared with the likes of Isaac Newton Leonardo da Vinci, Robert Boyle (of Boyles"s Law fame) and Victor Hugo. It seems likely these connections are what excited the establishments reactions to The Blood of a Poet. Certainly with this obscure film he can be said to be the GrandMaster of French avant-garde film making.

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.
