Kind of Blue T shirt by Daniel Davidson



The Artwork:

I have wanted a Miles Davis t shirt in the WeAdmire library of designs pretty much since we started. I was at a show recently that triggered the determination to commission one.

Intuitively I had held back commissioning a shirt but could not properly express why. I tentatively exchanged emails with Daniel Davidson on the subject. I wanted his interpretation of Miles Davis, not his interpretation of my interpretation of Miles Davis so beyond saying I wanted a WeAdmire Miles Davis shirt I kept my mouth shut. His reply: was something along the lines of I have worn out Kind of Blue in more than one format, But it might take me a while. By way of explaining the delay he continued I want to avoid a smoke and silhouettes take on him.  Daniel precisely described the insecurity I’d had about briefing someone to give me a Miles Davis t shirt. I had not been able to articulate the reason for my circumspection before Daniel had described it.  I was astonished. 

So What is a marvellous question we should all ask ourselves more often than we do.  Ask it at moments of being irritated by the daft behaviour, our own or that of others, which we encounter everyday.  Or the moment we might seek to take pleasure in contemplating the worst outcome of what is in front of us. Failing that play the music and enjoy the spontenaiety or wear the shirt and consider Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Timmy Cobb, John Coltrane, Julian Adderley, Paul Chambers and Wynton Kelly (piano on Freddie Freeloader) at their best.

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.
