Shure microphone all over (from above) tee shirt by Yukio Miyamoto

SKU: wa-619



The shirts:

These t shirts are unique for being made exclusively for us wholly out of cool-max-image 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.

The artwork:

Shure 55 Unidyne Microphone t shirt
First produced in 1939 this model has been in continuous production ever since, it is probably the most internationally recognised microphone. (In the UK that distinction goes to the BBC AXBT, manufactured for the BBC by Marconi because the BBC could not afford the RCA original.  About £9 each for the Marconi instead of about £130 each for the RCA).

The Shure 55 Unidyne became familiar because it was favoured by most of the leading performers and politicians, Elvis Presley, JFK, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald. US president Harry Truman, famously used one in a press conference while holding the Chicago Tribune Newspaper with ‘Dewey defeats Truman’ emblazoned across its front page. A reports of my death have been exaggerated moment recalled on one of our t shirts. And more recently by Alabama 3…

The 55 was said to deliver the best compromise between sensitivity and dynamic range for the user with the lowest levels of pickup and feedback from other sources.

The care and attention to detail in the design and manufacture of the Shure 55 is matched by Yukio Miyamoto in his 3D CAD simulation. We routinely produce these images at 720 dpi in one axis and 1440dpi in the other when we put them on our shirts. The resolution of the original file is such that we can do this with a print up to about 3 meters in size before the image starts to pixilate visibly.
