Philip K Dick

£ 29.00

Philip K Dick was a criminally under-appreciated American science fiction writer, who conceived some of the greatest pieces of fiction ever put to paper. His projects include Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly, Minority Report and The Man in the High Castle, along with over 100 short stories. Dick drew from personal experience for a lot of his work, regularly dealing with issues such as depression, drug us, isolation, paranoia and schizophrenia. His work was often extremely dark and relentless, and very rarely would the themes of his work include anything resembling jubilation. Dick’s best, and most famous pieces of work is undoubtedly, Blade Runner, or Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, a true masterpiece.

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.
