Leica IIIf tee shirt by Yukio Miyamoto

£ 49.00

There is an enduring appeal in beautifully made objects where function is an overriding consideration but where attention to detail, uncompromising quality, precise manufacture and obsessive commitment in design elevates the object into something with durability and profound appeal. There is similarly profound appeal in owning and wearing work the quality of which is singular. Yukio Miyamoto simulates the image of the Leica beautifully and without compromise to be reproduced here at 720dpi.

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.
