Nikola Tesla t shirt by Emma Ridgway



Our T-shirt in admiration of Nikola Tesla features an illustration by Emma Ridgway.
“It will soon be possible, for instance, for a business man in New York to dictate instructions and have them appear in type in London or elsewhere. He will be able to call from his desk and talk with any telephone subscriber in the world. It will only be necessary to carry an inexpensive instrument no bigger than a watch, which will enable its bearer to hear anywhere on sea or land for distances of thousands of miles.” – Nikola Tesla, in 1909. Born in 1856 in Smiljan, lika, Nikola Tesla was an inventor and engineer with a wonderful mind for ideas and a curious private life. Tesla studied at the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, in 1873 before going on to the University of Prague. He began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881. He later joined Continental Edison Company in Paris before heading to America in 1884. In an introduction letter to Thomas Edison by Charles Batchelor, Batchelor declared “I know two great men. One is you and the other is this young man”. Tesla eventually fell out with Edison after the latter refused to accept Tesla’s insistence that alternating current was more efficient than the direct current Edison had invested heavily in.  Nikola Tesla discovered the rotating magnetic field, a fundamental principle in physics and the basis of nearly all devices that use alternating current. Tesla brilliantly adapted the principle of rotating magnetic field for the construction of alternating current induction motor and the polyphase system for the generation, transmission, distribution and use of electrical power. His ideas appeared to him in flashes, fully formed, and his patents and theories led to modern AC electric power systems, X-ray, Radio, Electric cars and renewable energies. His inventions changed the world forever!

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.
